RJFC Hits Madrid for the first time.

I’d visited Madrid once before back in 2004, but that was before I’d started doing any kind of street art. I have to say I wasn’t overly excited about going again, other than seeing our best friends from England who were meeting us there, but I must admit that it turned out to be an extremely enjoyable trip.

Here’s what I left while I was there…

There was a massive line of people there which started two days before, for the devotional pilgrimage to see the Cristo de Medinaceli statue of Jesus, which happens every first Friday in March.

RJFC Sticker #46 (below) was also completed on 2/27/14 using only trash on a rectangular label. I made it while sitting at l’Excelsior restaurant in Mons, Belgium.

Ray Johnson Fan Club in Florida 12/2013

Ray Johnson Fan Club hits Florida over Christmas 2013…

Ray Johnson Fan Club – Relationship LXXII ~ “Smoky Moutarde.”

This visit to the states wasn’t very productive artwise, but I did get to spend some quality time with family.

This collage was left 12/27/2013 in the men’s room at the Lucky Dill Deli (awesome sandwiches!) in Palm Harbor, Florida, USA. The interior of the bathroom had been painted in a graffiti style so it seemed like a good place to leave some actual street art, (see below.)
