Johnny and Dave have come back to Sydney’s streets…with some new stories of love to tell…

This is a new chapter for Johnny and Dave using my words, chalk grafitti and photography. Johnny and Dave are 2 young characters I created quite some time ago now…and I think its time to bring them back for some inner city Sydney love and adventuring.

    Back with a blast. Wonderful. I’ve gotta know. Pre or post “graffiti?”

  • Not sure what you mean lucin – ‘pre or post graffiti’?

    The ‘Beware’ is interesting. Lovely shot. Not sure if this is a happy or sad thing, but it’s provocative and beautiful . .

    Did you actually chalk the wall….or add it in editing?

  • Thanks for clarifying lucin. In all of the Johnny and Dave images to date, including those to come, I do everything onsite including the wall chalking :) Cheers.

    Oh, that makes it all the more wonderous! Installation artist comes to mind. So extraordinary though as you are actually doing literary installation!!! I don’t think such a thing has ever been done. Applause.

  • ;) Thankyou sunshine. I’m really loving this little project and not thought of it as instalation before but you are absolutely right.
