clown patch bombs...bitten

a tree, clownin' it up in the East Village.

The clown patches are installed with hopes that they remain until the function on Saturday night. In the previous post we see the clown patches awaiting installation.   In this post we see the clown patches post installation.  It was a fast, down and dirty install, early to boot.  The East Village is an eclectic space, filled with places to quell hunger, thirst and social isolation.  There are hipster clothing stores, not so hipster clothing stores, coffee houses and even art galleries, you should go there soon and buy something.
Independent businesses are delicious...nom.

yarnivore bites in the east village

clown patches

more clown patches, soon to be installed.

So, my friend says; this artists group I am in is having a thing on Saturday night in the East Village and I told them you would be happy to participate....all righty then.  As it happens I will be out of town this Saturday so I cannot 'participate'.  Instead the yarnivore will be installing these cheerfully colored  nauseous 'clown patches' on Linden Ave between 1st street and Broadway, a 'clown bomb' if you will, on Thursday evening.  I do so hope some of them will remain until Saturday so my art can 'participate' in the goings on.  Photos of the installation will follow.
Clowns, yucky, yarn bombs...delicious.

Take What You Need

'need' flyer

ready to go

'need' flyer installed at Viento y Agua coffee house

'need' flyer ready to give freely

I found this idea on Pintrest, and just had to pass it on.  The sign is fashioned after a 'for sale',  'for rent' or 'a service offered' flyer with phone numbers at the bottom of the paper, cut into strips for easy tearing.  There is a board for such things at a local coffee house, Viento y Agua on 4th street in Long Beach, California, so I put one up there.  Plans are in the works to make many more and add them to boards around town.  Maybe you will feel like passing this on too, make one and put it up at the grocery store, laundromat or even in your break room at work.  Take What You Need and feed the hungry...delicious.
