The novelty of late night phone calls bringing news of new spots to hit will never grow old. With a fresh new wall to paint, all that was needed was a new outline to match. I sat all night, focused on a solitary sheet of white paper. Aliens was on in the background, alas, no amount of Ripley mashing up aliens seemed to inspire. After taking a break from mixing some good old Acid Techno, I came across the Acid Ted – Infected Rejected track. One hour later and a fresh new sketch was born!
I worked alongside local street artist Color when bringing this illustration to life inside new Sheffield headshop, Balance. We were given free reign, and chose to use our tools of the trade to create a wall full of squids and dirty habits.
As we sit in the midst of everything we’ve destroyed, all we can do is remember everything we have laid our bitter taste over. The only thing we can do is dream of a time when our mouths weren’t out to scorn and destroy everything we have loved.
