Afternoon from here ??.⁠ Excited (& a bit nervous)… less than a week until I (re)launch a campaign which is very special to me & my ⁠rainbow-obsessed heart/brain/eyeballs…and will hopefully do good for this city I love & others in it too. ? ⁠ In other news, I got to hang out with one of my favourite people for a large chunk of today. Bloody love you, @saralimback. ♥️⁠ We’ll fix the world eventually, one beige pot at a time. ? Hope you’re all having a non-terrible Tuesday!

Evening! This is my first post in 78 days, so I can’t imagine this post will pop up on many of your feeds. ?? • I’ve been enjoying Bristol this Autumn, especially these last couple of weeks collaborating with @visitbristol on their #MerryBristmas campaign. I’ve been exploring some of the Christmassy things to do over the festive period, seeing giraffes at the Wildplace Project, eating festive pies at Pieminister, learning about Japanese plants at the University Botanical Gardens and scoffing seasonal gelato at Swoon. ???? • I’ve created a story highlight, but I haven’t finished yet. Despite the terrible weather, I’ll be continuing to explore Bristol’s festivities this week(end). I’m really excited to go to Victorian Evening in Keynsham on Friday, anyone else going? I’ll be wandering around with a bag full of Thatchers so hit me up if you fancy a tinnie with I. • Thanks to all the local businesses that have been a part of the #MerryBristmas campaign, and thanks to all my awesome fellow content creators for being great mates, it’s been a blast working with you all. ?? • Thanks to everyone who gets involved with my stories, I’m not always able to reply quickly but I appreciate all the messages and interaction I get, you lot are legends! ?? • Would love to hear of any Christmassy recommendations if you’ve bothered to read this far? ?? • #bestofbristol #repostmyfujifilm

You’ve GOAT to be kidding me that there are only 27 days left of #Goatober.. & a limited time to get to our hands on @asadobristol’s latest special! The ‘El Cabrito’🐐🍔 Retired dairy goat patty, smoked goat shoulder, pickled cabbage, whipped feta, green tahini sauce & aleppo chilli butter💥 I’m not even trying to get your goat, this burger is BIG TINGZ👊🏼 #Goatober runs every year throughout October, & it’s aim is to highlight how this meat can be used in a variety of dishes – to encourage us to buy more for cooking at home, or to order it when eating out. One bite of this bad boy & I think you’ll agree, it’s pretty bang on fucking delicious👏🏼🍔🙌🏼Get it whilst you can, or cry about it later. #Ad #Gifted

Alas, poor Ursa! I knew her well. She hath borne me on her back a thousand times; and now, how
abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know
not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one
now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen?

My @gretathunberg wall finished. The biggest wall I’ve done to date, the feedback and comments I’ve had from everyone has been incredible from all ages and backgrounds – art is always such a great unifier. • • The images are from various stages, from the initial painting of the epic @nomad.clan Upfest Lisa piece, to me talking to the local school and then the final image is the original sketch that I came up with and presented to @upfest and @georgefergusonx • • Thank you to @upfest @tobacco_factory and @georgefergusonx for allowing this to happen and of course thank you to Greta for being the inspiration to us all. • • 65-70% of the wall was painted with water based paint with an electric spray gun powered by the Tobacco Factories solar cells. I used a minimum of conventional spray paint – around 25 full cans I’ve counted as this was a big consideration given the theme of the wall. • • #Jodyart #jodybristol #jodyartist #art #bristol #bristolart #bristolstreetart #streetart #bristolgraffiti #aerosolart #extinctionrebellion #graffitiart #gretathunberg #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #climateaction

This stunning mural by @charlotte_warburton may well be over two years old but it’s still looking like it was painted just last week. It’s one of those pieces that has become synonymous with the area it’s painted in and always makes me smile as well reminding me of watching the movie as a kid. With this piece you not only get the stunning artwork but you also get a quote from Mr Kipling himself. “So Mowgli went away and hunted with the four cubs in the jungle from that day on. But he was not always alone, because years afterward he became a man and married. But that is a story for grown-ups” ~ Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book. – #ilovewhatisee #bristolstreetartandgraffiti #bristolstreetart #streetart #streetartist #streetartbristol #streetarteverywhere #aerosolart #urbanart #urbanartist #urbanartphotography #urbanartphotographer #graffiti #instagraff #bristolgraffiti #ukgraff #charlottewarburton #mural #disney #junglebook #mowgli #rudyardkipling #quote #garagedoors #mural #spraycanart #spraycanartist #rsa_graffiti #tv_streetart #bristolphotographer
