the united colours of bob

Guess who moved into the neighbourhood this Christmas?

Bob's in the hood!

The blanked one represents a Bob the owner of the wall got to before I did.

cool!
Where are these?

(Since I've not been out of my house in Oxford during the daylight hours for some weeks, I wouldn't have noticed Bob even if he were on my street.)

Re: cool!
On Blackwells publishing (opposite the Elm Tree), the side of Wings, Cornacopia, the Futon shop, the Polish restaurant, Uniiki (under one of the windows!) the empty shop by the Moonlight, and on the yellow traffic this-side post at the bottom of Cowley Road. I also spotted another one I didn't get at the end of the alleyway leading onto St Clements, on the side of the Indian that's always graffittied. The blanked out one is on the disco-ball shop. May be more!

I was being very bad about being up late on a school night, and went to bed the moment I had responded to your comment. And then lay awake for about an hour with insomnia. I wonder if my brain is still under guarantee?

One is facing in a different direction.
This can only mean PLAGUE and APOCOLYPSE.

Plague of FALSE BOBS!
All the right-facing "BOB"s are FALSE BOBS!!
Only the left-facing PIPE is the MARK of the TRUE "BOB"!!!
Sounds like the work of BOBBIES who don't know which way up to hold the stencil...

As if we didn't have enough crap to worry about with the with the cult wars, now THIS has happened. I won't be able to sleep for days now worrying about the upcoming PLAGUE and APOCOLYPSE. I assumed we had until July 5th, not I'm not so sure.

Re: What the...
I've not made any personal enquiries, but I'm pretty sure that this one was made by one of our local stencillers. Making stencils is pretty straigtforward, getting them to look good is harder ... buy one of the little Banksy Books, it has a good guide to making stencils in the back -- but to give the short version, photocopy your Bob onto A4, tape the photocopy onto a sheet of glossy card (like the insert from a shirt packet) and then take your craft knife and cut carefully round the black, remembering to leave enough card to ensure structural integrity. Buy a new craft kife (or get a new blade) or it won't be sharp enough to look good. Take off the photocopy and your card is good to go. Tape card to wall with masking tape to avoid embassassing slippage, and spray away. Car paint is a bugger to get off, and comes in lovely colours.

Bob...hmmm
The same Bob of similiar comic stature as the pipe-smoker of Red Meat? Or how about the comic character who goes on about "Beer, getting people laid since 1872" T-Shirts?
