Stencil resurrection

A peek under the screen reveals the twinkle of wet ink; lovely

Another east-coast novelty arrives and fades layering fresh glazes into memory of swoops and arcs,  of undeterminable chattering acceleration across the surfaces of a sea come alive, its writhing undulations an ephemeral space exploited by few as stage, as canvas, as tapestry; clandestine soloists or the more gregarious exhibitionists. Revelers, artists and illustrators loosening their terrestrial fetters for the dance.

Rare runner at Killiney Beach, 2014

Digging deep in a slowly rotting cardboard apple box over the weekend (“hmm… I know I’ve got a jew’s harp/U-nail/L300 tail-light bulb/packet of alfalfa seed… in here somewhere) I pulled out a yellowed A4 envelope containing a stack of old stencils. Crikey, circa 2002 I reckon and last pulled by hand on a wobbly table set up in a garage somewhere on the great Sunny Hoax. It makes me smile to recall a little stack of crisp home-printed tees and behind them the trail carnage that created them.

Well, why not get a few inked again? My smile got wider.
