1.Via Kind Over Matter, Moss Graffiti.
This WikiHow explains how to mix up a brushable paint of moss that will grow on a wall surface. So green and gorgeous it hurts.

2.Tree Sweaters and Street Knitting
This is the image I saw at Art News blog that jump-started my growing street knitting fixation. It's Knit Knot Tree by Corrine Bayraktaroglu:
My friend Amy Van Gogh, FestivALL street art Goddess and seamstress extraordinaire, mentioned that Taylor Books/Annex Studios is holding a Street Knitting class this fall. Amy has done some amazing street works that embody the goal of FestivALL turning the city into a work of art. I'm missing a knitting performance piece by Amy and Rob Hrezo as I type. (Feeling a bit wonky...)
I'm not ready to find out if I can knit with seven fingers and my absolute next skill to learn will be sewing, but I'm so charmed by knitting as a punk groovy art medium. MinniPurl will be teaching the class, but the schedule's not live on Taylor's site yet.

Awesome graffiti wall in the Czech republic.
My cousin Coleman Richardson studied film in the CR this past year, and he showed me some amazing photographs that blew my mind. (Be assured that you'll see a long goth girl shout out to the Church of Bones in Kutna Hora.) Coleman told me about watching this wall change from day to day as artists continually layer gorgeous words and images. I'm hoping the Crash man will comment with more details.

You Go, Girl.

I discovered this at Falafel For The Soul, which is a site for guerrilla optimism. I learned of a big movement in urbans centers (i.e. not my wee, hilly town) of You Go Girl graffiti and it was an instant obsession. Here's the Flickr Group where I found these images. Could you die? Ubiquitous, feminist, funky graffiti.
