Here is something I put on a window a little while ago. If you look close, you can maybe see caribou. Maybe. For a first post I thought I'd run in line with the recycled theme. There is also something to be said about migration and springtime. Community and change. How tiny caribou look like ants sometimes. So it goes.

Its been an unusually snowy winter in Vancouver and the temperatures after dark have been far bellow zero making it difficult to put up posters on most nights. I've had this poster kicking around my place since January when I was seriously contemplating joining Toby in Argentina. At the time I was also looking forward to visiting Bolivia to hopefully meet and befriend a bowler hat wearing Bolivian woman.
Last night I finally put this piece up. Its sunny now, the snow is receding and I never made it to South America.
This sweet shit mobile belongs to my roomate at my first Buenos Aires apartment. He had it parked out side the apartment for over a year without moving it. It does not funcion in the loosest definition of the word unless pushing and rolling counts. In the last month people started complaining so he has been rolling it from spot to spot around the block. It is unclear what his intentions are for this metalic wonder. The sign on the window says ''This car has owner'' and then the address.This is what me and my stenciling friend, Robert, did to it.
It was my last night in Buenos Aires so I didn't have time to take pictures of it during the day :( But we did almost get caught by the cops once again, on my watch obviously. They did a stop and stare at us with the second officer asleep open mouthed in the front passenger seat, and then slowly drove away. Thank god for pretending to be waiting for the bus and not going to jail on my last night and not getting my camera stolen.
