Do you ever look at a piece of street art and wonder where the artist got their inspiration from?  I do, and recently I was able to actually ask the artist in question!

A while ago, back in 2016, I featured this cheerful piece by Sarkon that I had spotted in Brough Park, Leek.  I’m quite often in Leek, visiting family, and the mural makes me smile whenever I see it so I was delighted when the artist got in touch with me via my blog.  So I asked, what inspired the mouse?

Thats a damn good question from my little sister, she inspired that 100% just from a little girl she was obsessed with mice. As young children me and my big sister picked on her but no one else could, so as a little tribute I woke up one morning after racking my mind for ideas on characters, boom it hit me the mouse was born, now branching out into a badger, monkey and a panda.

What a sweet reason!  He has sent me a few photos and updates on other bits of street art he’s working on, so here’s a selection.

Street Art #202

I didn’t manage to spot much on a recent trip to Bath, but I did quite like the wee rat.  It really is tiny, and overhead on the side of a bridge over the river, so it was a total bugger to get a photo of!

Street Art #200

If a friend comes home from their holiday and says they saw some street art and thought of me then I’m a happy woman!  The lovely Ana (who owns this gorgeous beast) went to Dublin for a day in early January and brought me some street art for my collection.

Street Art #198

One last lot from what I may have to call my vault of shame (photos that I carefully stored then forgot).  Arch took these in Cambridge early-ish last year.  The third one isn’t actually street art of any kind, obviously, but my dog’s name is Loki and he’s a smart cookie* so I love that she included it!

*serious understatement; he’s a shiba, so it’s like living with a small furry velociraptor.
