Picture posting of YTR734 for private party 3307 (also YCR2330II and YTR6310ZS)

If you're just passing thru looking for street art, sorry, I'm using the space today to show a trumpet I'm selling to someone:

These are the three Yamaha horns I'm trying to divest myself of. All three are playable. On the off chance you are a passer-by and want to buy any of these at listed prices, contact me at

YTR 734 - Professional model, based on the Schilke 5 I believe. Very good condition, has some dings and scratches. $300 firm.

YCR 2330II - Student model cornet with shepherd's crook - like new condition, $200 firm. Nobody really wants this kind of horn, so it'll probably be donated to a middle school for beginning winds. (Great starter horn for younger kids: little resistance, easy to hold and balance, not a strident sound)

YTR 6310ZS Bobby Shew model - professional horn - Very good condition, has minor dents and scratches.  $600 firm in private showing, but currently on auction at Ebay and will let go at whatever that market brings (started at $400).

Dear Street Art Lovers,

Last week I shared with you a wall of eyes on the side of a bakery. Today we have another installment in that theme with another wall of eyes:

Artist #artofchase and #topofoto, Wall of Eyes, paint on two-storey building (2015).

This building sits at the corner of a 6-point intersection  where Sunset Blvd. meets Hollywood Blvd, Hillhurst, Virgil, and Sunset Drive. You can almost fall asleep waiting for your turn at a stoplight here. And if you're crossing the street? You gotta look every direction and be ready to run. No wonder this building thinks it's got to have so many eyes open ...

There are more on two other sides as well.

But have no fear, there are other body parts to take in as well:

In case you think this looks familiar, yes we've seen these eyes before on a previous posting:

There's even a spot on Melrose where you see these eyes. I can't find them right now, but I'll give to you some day.

Well, Thursday's about over. Enjoy what's left of it.

Dear Street Art Lovers,

I gotta hit and run today. But all I gotta say is: "The eyes of East Hollywood are upon you..."

Artist "Dazzle," Wall of Eyes, spray paint on parking lot wall.

So here we are in the part of East Holly called Thai Town and you're thinking this has to be a Thai business right? Those eyes sure look East Asian to me, single-lidded (kinda like mine). But you would be wrong. This is on a wall of a parking lot for an Armenian bakery. I'd tell where it is exactly, but you can Google the bakery name...

There's just something very frothy about this style; it reminds me of fashion illustration in the waning 1980s to early 1990s, very nostalgic to an old timer like me.

Anyway, gotta go.
