Meet Toledo’s Resident Demon

That’s him:

Demon

“Shortcut to hell? This way, Madam.”
Spot the snail stuck to his toe 😉

OK, Toledo may not be home to any Banksies, but as long as it’s not just an indecipherable, gratuitous scrawl, I quite like graffiti, even if it’s mediocre. On that note, who am I to call anyone’s artistic efforts mediocre…? I can’t even draw a straight line with a pencil, and as for aiming a spray can at a fidgety target, like a wall, forget it!

Graffiti guy

I have a feeling I should know who these guys are... but I ain't got the foggiest. Does anyone recognise any of these??

    The faces in the last photo are terrific murals. (I have to admit that the demon’s third eye freaks me out a bit.)
    There’s something about wall murals that really command your attention. In Queens there are a few buildings that have amazing murals painted on them. I haven’t seen them in person, but I’m hoping to go soon.

    Oooh, I love the devil! No idea who the people in the last photo are, but whoever did it is an incredibly artist! I’m like you… couldn’t draw a straight line with a ruler.

    I can’t draw either. When I was a kid I wanted to be an animator for Disney–but you have to be able to draw. Another dream shot out of the sky by reality.

        When I was five, my teacher had a meeting with my mother since she thought I needed more “attention.” My stick figures weren’t up to snuff. My mom told them I was intelligent and asked why I didn’t draw more elaborate stick figures. I said that recess was after art class and the sooner I finished the sooner I could play outside. I was able to stay in my class.

        My head and body were the same with four lines coming from the center. One girl in my class would draw fingernails. What the? it was a stick figure.
