Amazing New Graffiti at Sixth and Central

Possible portrait of Falkor the Luck Dragon

The penny-farthing picture, bearing the phrase “park your car,” that was beautifying the SE corner of Sixth and Central, is gone. This is sad because I loved it so. It was a cheerful, lovely image blip on an otherwise blighted eyesore. It was painted on the tan (read “worst color ever”) plasticy wrap which currently encircles the Anasazi building, presumably to keep it from falling completely apart while someone does something to it.

The only good news I have (and it’s quite good) is that after the penny-farthing got disappeared, the artist/s returned and put up a new piece. It is a dragon more than 50 feet long, with a big smiling face that greeted me on the walk to work this morning. It is awesome. It’s even worth a trip out into this hot-as-the-face-of-the-sun weather to get a look at it. My pictures do not do it justice.
