Merry F'n Christmas!

Steven Slater, you've got nothing on Harrod's Father Christmas, who in a most spectacular way, was fired from his job last night for taking control of the lights and offending everyone in true Construction Graffiti style. Read the whole story here.

***Update. Turns out that didn't happen, but Santa was actually sacked for lewdly asking a family's teenage girl to come sit on his knee. Still appropriate for construction graffiti either way you look at it.

Tell me this has never been done before.

Why hasn't anyone ever thought of doing this!? There were leftover bagels in the lunchroom and despite the huge pile of tupperware at my desk, I couldn't think of a way to keep them fresh. The I saw the CD spindle.

French Shoes.

My friend SD pointed me in the direction of her friend's Blog, which makes me think that the french are obsessed with shoes.

This guy is wearing steaming piles of poo shoes. I heard they make you run faster to avoid the smell.

Who knew that the French were Savion Glover's main competition? Those pointy French shoes electrocute people!

PS. the blog is about way more than just shoes, there's actually tons of great graffiti and signage here.

Neighbourhood Graffiti

Finally, someone has answered the question! I've got friends who live in the area who STILL waffle between neighbourhoods when they are explaining to people whether they live in Cobble Hill or Carroll Gardens.

Thank you to Curbed for the flicks.

RIP Mars Bar?

The Mars bar embodies all that is Construction Graffiti, sort of like Mike Tyson, but less violent these days.

Curbed just reported that the Mars Bar is giving way to a 12 story glassy tower. The owner says he'll be getting 3-4 times the space, but with the storefront glass base, it just won't have the same character



WAIT! There is a future for a storefront glass dive bar!

Oh the Subway Inn.... Such an amazing view of the Bloomie's loading dock!

Construction Pansy?

Yes, we all know most of these guys make enough to afford Hermes, but probably would never set food in the store because of its similarity in spelling to its blistery homonym...You get it.

This is how 'clean' my jobsite is. People think they're being bad-ass by tying a Hermes ribbon around an outlet. GIVE ME SOME NEW MATERIAL!

Holy Shit!

Actual construction graffiti! I have been stuck in the office for so long (and on totally clean jobs) that I haven't gotten any material! Please submit your own so that I have some good stuff (rather than three half ass shots of a fucking fish) to post!
