Today was amazing! Got to start painting at last :)
Still was waiting for some pics from the Club, but decided to start on the pics I have got so I started with Riyad Mahrez. He's going ok, I didn't manage to finish today but hopefully by lunchtime tomorrow, and then I can start on the next one.
Here's where I got upto today, still have his beard, neck, forehead and quite a bit to do though...
I don't think I'll ever get over seeing that people are coming to watch me painting still.
It's so amazing, especially the words. A lovely guy came with his wife and kids today, he got quite emotional about it and was holding back the tears. I don't think I will ever be able to express what it feels like to have done something, and realise it affected someone like that. Happy tears!
And the blessings keep coming! Anyone who knows me, will know that when the sweet shop owner comes and says I can get my Diet Cokes and Bountys on the house! That's incredible! I think he wants his wall painting too tho!
And this is kinda interesting... to find walls to paint in general isn't that easy, what I've found now is that people are messaging me asking me to come an paint their wall, and I don't think they even mind what I might paint. I could stay in Leicester for months painting. Trying to understand that, after 2 weeks ago struggling to find places to paint.
I had the pleasure of being visited by the Police today!
We got photo bombed by Claudioooooo!
And then another Policewoman came past 10 mins later, we had a little chat about the fine line between vandalism and 'accepted' art on walls. I'm not sure exactly what the difference is, but I know if I just picked up my cans and went to another place and painted, the same Police saying amazing things about what I'm doing would likely nick me.
And that's when someone from BBC asked me to come and talk about that exact topic tomorrow morning! Does anyone remember the Fast Show, you know that guy who was always in the kitchen and told an amazing story and finished with...'which was nice'
Well, everyday something amazing happens in Leicester, the coincidences and things that happen where can literally feel a higher power has pulled some strings, are overwhelming at times.
My mate mate Junior came up from Wembley today to hang out, Juniors been great help to me with talking to the club and helping me get pics of the players. Another coincidence...he played for Leicester City!
I've tucked him into bed and he's watching Only Fools and Horses, yes...we are living LARGE lol
My song for the day...

My Life is Sunshine and Rain, just like love, and in my heart is Joy and Pain, just like Love!
