Graffiti Goddess

I always thought you could never make me draw nor paint to save my life but Canadian Blog-art King Frank Sirianni changed all that.

Behold...my first ever attempt at graffiti artistry:


What do you think? Not too shabby? :p

Fabulous Frank's magnificently cool mission is to encourage all and sundry in blogging earth to unabashedly explore their inner artist and joyfully unleash their creativity on brick walls of canvas. He put up Foxxfyrre's Black and White Art Blog precisely for this awesome purpose.

Just choose your wall, beautify it to your heart's content and send it in. Frank will then post your wall on his site together with a link to you blog. As if this wasn't great enough, he will even go so far as to write a little something about your blog.

Like so:

GraffitiMyBlog Wall #23

I decided to do something a little different to review Irene's Blog called Pregnant Pauses.It is one thing to find a great blog by accident by clicking on a comment made in someone's blog to see who wrote those kind or witty words to the blogger they visited, but it is another to find someone's blog constantly refered to in actual posts. I've stumbled upon many blogs where Irene's Pregnant Pauses has been talked about, or directly linked to because the post she made on her own blog caught that blogger's attention. So to review Irene's blog, I thought what about doing a simple search on blogger to see what the phrase 'Irene Pregnant Pauses' would bring up. And how about five pages of hits to that search, and most are from blogposts that refer to Irene's blog from other blog authors....

....Irene's blog Pregnant Pauses is a genuine treat to visit, not only in her writing, but through her photography as well. Until visiting Irene's blog, I've always refered to a "Pregnant Pause" as being that uncomfortable long silence on the phone when you had just asked a government representative a simple question.

Please click on this to view the complete entry.

Thanks a lot, Frank! Not only for giving me such a good review, but for providing a unique venue for such fun and creativity!

So, dahling bloggerfriends, what are you waiting for?

Get thee to a mouse now and go vandalize a wall!

Wow this is a subject that is of interest to me - as I have featured the graffiti's here in Melbourne in one of my post and I have even created a new blog just for this.

I love your work though! It is very YOU :)

Ellee said...

This is really funky, a great first attempt, but don't give up your day job.

Ju Pengfei said...

Today I really forgot to tell you:
Your blog's current theme is just I ever used. I like this theme very mmuch. Because black color can let me to the most calm...

Ju Pengfei said...

I just find a friend that we both have her! It's thebodytalk!
haha, Her blogger is really a better blog.I like it very much and often visit it.
I don't know why I can't visit all blogs normally,Now I only can visit your blog with a tool.Maybe the GFW(Great Firewall)is block it.The GFW is a Chinese Firewall and it always block some website of abroad.
haha ,I'll be visit your blog again!

Irene said...

Michael: The foot of greatness is tickled pink by your comment! HAHA! Thanks...I always enjoy your remarks! :p

ZeroImpact: Hope you had as much fun as I did with the graffiti painting. Send in your wall so we can see!

Princess Shin: You cannot possibly be worse than I am at drawing. Honest! I cannot draw a straight line to save my life! Corel Photo-Paint makes it unbelievable easy. I tried it for the first time with the graffiti wall and I was hooked. You'll be, too! c",)

SQT: Glad you found me. (",) Let me know when your wall's up so I can check it out!

Sweet Susan: Thanks! Oooh, I can't wait to see what kind of wall my favorite poetess conjures.

Reeholio: You bet. I am now the spraypaint queen. :p

JR: You have to do it. And it's gotta be a Prison Wall! Exciting! :p

Lovely Lizza: Another Pinoy wall invades the blogsphere! Yay indeed! c",)

Ju Pengfei: Don't worry. I can understand what you're saying. Your English is actually cute! c",)

Glad you dropped by. We are practically neighbors! I visited Schenzen, China during my honeymoon. It was nice! Hope you visit often so we can be bloggerfriends. c",)

Brian Buddy: I'll bet your wall will have flowers. c",) I'll check out your list of fives tomorrow!

Christina: Looking forward to seeing the wall by the wacky wench! :p

Ellee: You don't have to worry. That funky wall has sufficiently zapped the artistic energy out of me. Bwahaha! c",) Thanks so much for dropping by!

Odat said...

Wow...I like this...I'm going to look into it.
Thanks for the visit!

Irene said...

Odat: Great! Have fun with it! c",)

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

That's amazing. I will try it. Love your blog.

gem said...

Isn't it just sheer fun, doing a blog wall. Yours is fantastic, Irene. It makes me want to go back and give it another go.

Cergie said...

Your blog is uncredible, you're so imaginative: drawing picture, words, your are sucessful with all way of expression.
Congratulations.
I do like particularly th picture with the shelves of books and also the montage at the top is very well done.

mysti said...

Wow how very cool! I will have to go and visit so I can play with paint... one of my favorite things to do!

Blessings.

Irene said...

Welshcakes Limoncello: Great to see you here. Feel at home! c",)

Precious Gem: Yes, it was loads of fun! Suddenly, I understand why there are so many vandalized walls around....people just need a creative way to leave their mark. Now that we have Frank's site, we can spraypaint all we want without breaking a law. c",)

Irene said...

Cergie: I'm glad you dropped by! And I'm glad you liked what you saw. c",) Thank you for the lovely message! I'll see you again soon!

Magical Mysti: I bet there will be an angel in your wall. (",) Let me know when it's up so I can admire it!

Julie said...

I love it. I'm finding myself using "bwahahaha" in my own emails. I just love the sound of the BW- before the HA! It makes it sound like semi-evil giggling. Love it. ;-)

xo
Sexy Julie

Irene said...

Sexy Julie: You can also try using MW- before the HA! As in, MWAHAHAHA! It makes the giggling sound even more evil. :p

choochoo said...

Hello. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours, and I'll be back to check it out more later:)

Irene said...

Choochoo: Great to see you here! Thanks! Will look forward to seeing more of you. c",)

ExoticPrincess said...

that was a good drawing. How do you manage to write such a good blog everyday?

Tim Rice said...

I love you your graffiti wall. It expresses you so well. I like it. :)

When I get a bit more time, I'll have to see what I can do.

Maria said...

you do have a cool website! I can't wait to go through all your posts.

May I add you to my blogroll?

Maria

PS: Thank you for visiting Pieces of M.E. and thank you for the comment.

Ju Pengfei said...

So much comments.
I think I can't visit my blog normally in several times.
Because I visit some websites which especially about Google.
All the Googler said that maybe the GFW block the blogger again.
I don't know how soon it can unblock.
Now I have to visit your blog with a proxy tool.But it take my computer's connect speed more slowly...

Blondie said...

Your graffiti is purty. :) But because I'm a Lostie, all I can think about is the mural in the hatch that Desmond made. :) Bwah mwah ha!

krystyna said...

I must say: It is Great!!!
Thanks a lot!
All the best to you!

Irene said...

Exotic Princess: Glad you liked it. Aren't you going to put up a wall dedicated to HIM? :p

Tim: If my wall expresses me so well, then it must look pretty loony. BWAHAHA! Always good hearing from you, Tim! c",)

Maria: OF COURSE you can add me to your blogroll! Basta Pinay, always welcome! :p I look forward to catching more of you. WOOHOO! c",)

Ju: That Great Fire Wall seems to be making things more difficult for you over there, huh? But don't worry. I still get your comments and I have no problem accessing your blog. (",)

Beautiful Blondie: Ah, I have yet to jump in on the "Lost" bandwagon. I plan to purchase the DVDs as all my friends keep raving about it! But from the little I've seen so far, I must agree with you....that Desmond is hot! :p

Krystyna: Thanks, dahling! Have a nice weekend! c",)

Lae said...

Hi! Nice blog! Add me to ur links http://2funnypictures.blogspot.com and let me know, i will add u, thanks :)

Woodstock said...

Hye girl, I've read your blog couple days ago and learned you love Reneildo Giannechini, so I wondered if you have seen this already.

http://www.tecontei.com.br/site/noticia_msn.php?noticia=27356

Hehehehe =D

Irene said...

Lae: Thanks for the invite! Sure, link me up and I'll do the same for you. Woohoo! c",)

Wonderful Woodstock: OMIGOOODNESS! You just made my day! Reynaldo is single again!?! YAHOO!!! :p Thanks for sharing. I love you already! c",)

Jennifer said...

What? WHAT? Giane is single again?!? This is the deafening chorus of a million women across the world (you and me included) rushing to find out what happened ;-) Hmmm, I wish I could read Portuguese (had to run the articles through a free translation service so you can just imagine the comedy that arose from that). By the way, this graffiti wall thing rocks.

Irene said...

Jennigirl: Dang...you are fast, woman! I was just about to email you the incredible news flash when your comment materialized! WOOOHOOO! :p

Woodstock said...

Yeah ladies, he's very single again and posing nude to celebrate! Hehehehe...

But, there's rumor has it that he's gay and his [now ex] wife is a lesbian and that his marriage was a big fake. Lol, sorry, of course this is me being bitchy and well, daydreaming too!

Irene said...

Woodstock: Nothing wrong with dreaming! :p Thanks again for keeping us in the loop!

Susan Abraham said...
