recent street art that was found the city





“batty over halloween”

We  carved pumpkins like the majority of everyone.  The theme of the pumpkins was very geeky.  One was gizmo from gremlins, my neighbor totoro and finally ice king from adventure time.  I discovered this amazing place that decorates their houses for halloween :)

Also one more thing I did was see the original ghostbusters movie in the theater!



as you can probably guess this post is about WW1.  It was a time to be – to see and to feel.   how the day was marked by the 100th anniversary, also an update on the exhibit at tower of london.

“an installation entitled ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ saw the Tower of London’s famous dry moat filled with over 800,000 ceramic poppies, creating a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary.” (quoted by The Royal British Legion)  It was so amazing and left you breathless how the moat was a solid red…so many poppies.


“post con blues”

Something is in the air again – yes Comic Con – winter version!  Of course many guests to meet – but also some amazing cosplay.  As you can see sweet pea had an amazing time taking lots of photos.  Cosplayed at this one as a peg doll from doctor who and Kaylee from firefly.  The next comic con is in July – and the cosplay wheels are a turning! Along with that a prize was also won at this con – a true blood prize package…it included a signed dvd from an actor, box set of the show, official  tshirt and finally a mug.


“celebrate good times”

Another year has passed and this year the theme doctor who / gremlins mash up…I have learned to not ask questions…it makes life more interesting in a fun way!



“boom clap”

It’s that time of year again – well at least the fall/winter collection of fashion weekend.



Doctor Who fans will find this funny :)  I just had to take a photo of it….how could you not?



Just thought I post as it is from one of the most known street artist here, Pegasus.  He is actually from Chicago but moved here many moons ago.  He does a lot of celebrities artwork along some unexpected areas on the walls, trucks, and even garbage cans!


“planet of the pudding brains!”

Waited for months to see the new Doctor spring into action – the new era of Doctor Who.  They where showing it not only on tv that day but also the cinemas!  What a way to start this era except at some events during the day and then the cinema to watch at night.  Full on cosplay happened and the traditional Jammy Dodgers cookies in hand the night went off without a hitch!





Who is Sweetpea?

Thanks for stopping by! I am a Designer living life and creating adventures with a stuff animal named Sweetpea. When it comes down to it, I'm someone who is passionate about art and design. One question I get is who is Sweetpea? It all started when I was graduating college way back in 2010. Due to me not being able to walk since I was moving overseas. My closest friend decided that Sweetpea would take my place, so all my fellow classmates and tutors posed for photos. The photos and Sweetpea the dog was given to me to continue the new adventure.. is how it all began. truly a creative's journey.
