My friend Jane has provided many great bits of street art, and she found another one in December.  This one (on the corner of Ventnor Street and Newland Avenue in Hull) is part of a Culture Cab project, which you can read about here.

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.
