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.
