# I actually quite like a lot of his stuff,
and his film was ace, but he is quite easy to mock, so I took the easy route.

# I've not seen his film
I take it it's ok then? His art I find a bit obvious and 6th form in its humour and complexity, but I still like it, cos I like people drawing on buildings and that.

Seriously though, at least there's something interesting about his stuff. I was most miffed when they painted over the CCTV mural opposite the Blue Posts off Oxford Street. It was a comforting Friday night thing for me, then - gone.

# The film comes more from his
prankster than his political side, which is where I think his talent really lies. Impossible to know how much of it is a hoax, too, which is a neat trick to have pulled off.

# I think his biggest problem nowadays
is that the whole "anonymous" thing no longer works. It means that you can't take him too seriously as an artist because you don't see him discussing his work (and illegal street art seems an odd area for a wealthy middle aged man to work in), and you no longer think he is an outsider because he's worked with some really big brands.

# And another one with the "post directly to FP" switch engaged
*keep trying. keep getting the odd one on the popular page. best we mortals can aspire to.*

# Ultimately, an fp is a single person's vote,
whereas the popular page is the community vote and so is actually probably a better sign of quality.

I'm lucky that at least one mod must like my stuff, that's all (and, before the inevitable from someone - no, I am not that mod)

That said, what makes it to the fp / popular page rarely correlates with what I expect to do well. I've certainly made plenty of stuff I've been pleased with which has then gone down badly and vice-versa.

# Oh aye you take a roll of the dice with everything you do...
And I can never grumble about the quality of stuff that you put up here - it's a standard to aim at.

Sorry I wasn't having a biff at you, just a minor non-specific biff!
