I’ve been here in New York, for almost a week now and it still feels like the first day. I am trying to think that this new, dazzling feeling won’t die out, but only time will tell.
Yesterday the mister took me down to the famous Coney Island park and I got to see all the crazy New Yorkers. It’s called Luna Park now, and it’s mostly overpriced pizza joints and obnoxious teenagers. I did get to take a quick pic of Nathan’s and one of the coolest murals I have ever seen.
I remember seeing the mural the very first time I stepped foot here, 2 years ago. I have never taken a picture of it until yesterday. The famous Os Gemeos Coney Island mural is 60 feet long and includes some really crazy colors. Those crazy brothers are some of the best names in graffiti and street art. If you didn’t know, I have a hard time giving “famous” artists a lot of credit. I just can’t deny how great Brazilian street art is, with all it’s unique color combinations and whimsical style. The Portuguese “twins” really won me over when I finally got to see this mural in real life.
A tiny note: if you read the last post you know I bought a new sketchbook. Guess what? I am already 3 pages in! Goodness gracious! I’ll post the new sketchbook pages later…
