"Robbing" Banksy!

McDonna-Banksy
Graffiti two "F's" one "T".....
Madeline Woe is my artistic pseudonym born in the 90's with doodling, wall art (my own home), tattoo stenciling and poems at the time drug induced...she emerged.  It was inspired by Jane Doe, and I made a more fancy yet anonymous unknown name.  I thought, one could not just tag my toe and call me Doe...maybe something fancier like Madeline Woe.  Exactly..you see it.  Yep... When I come up with something arsty, I blame her.  She is the Hermitess and doesn't get around much.  The blog allows me to exploit her a bit.


I really love urban art and banksy is an original master.  If you don't know him...

The artistic taggers are what make urban art so appealing to me.  Some unknown street person illegally adorning the cold ugly city.  I always watch for train cars that have graffiti just for that one or two that stand out artistically. You know you seen them...  There is sooooo much urban art going on illegal then turned legal. 


Train art has been indexed on many websites here's a couple:

Thank you, Tim. Yep I am officially now 53...my sister wanted to argue the fact that I was 54 because I am 4 years younger and she is 57. And I was the blond child. She got the jet black hair from my mom...But both of us now have the same hair color, but I reveled in the fact that I was prematurely grey and it goes well with a tan. She dumped the bottle color only a year ago.
