Featured Artist: Morely
We’d write about Morley, but it’d probably just make him uncomfortable. He’s just a guy, quietly sharing his art and giving the local passer-bys some food for thought. So, instead of writing an involved feature story and rambling on and on, we decided to just show you the little things that make up Morley, a Los Angeles based street artist in his own words:

1. his wife. 2. the plaid part of the tape. 3. a clean cut to the end of the wrapping paper. 4. the jawbreaker smell of new comic books. 5. when your turn signal matches the car in front of you (or the beat of the song on the radio.). 6. the rubber tab that always falls off the back of converse shoes. 7. the snapping sound a type writer makes when you hit a key. 8. pushing in the bubbles on the lid of a fast food soda cup. 9. the smell of a big box of old, broken crayons. 10. the theme song for reading rainbow. 11. the smell of burning leaves. 12. rabbits who let you pet them. 13. the smell of old libraries 14. the “helicopter” petals/leaves that fall from trees. 15. polaroid cameras. 16. carpenter ant trails in sticks. 17. the smell outside a laundry room. 18. lunch boxes 19. seeing with goggles under water. 20. old nintendo games 21. clean shaven girl legs. 22. twisting until your back cracks. 23. ludens cough drops. 24. mystery science theatre 3000. 25. oil pastels. 26. lack lemon. 27. breast coat pockets 28. sucking the shoelace tips of hoodies. 29. the cranberry desert from tv dinners. 30. calvin and hobbs. 31. fleece blankets. 32. martineli’s sparkling cider. 33. optic nerve. 34. checkers. 35. the knitting factory in new york. 36. tiger electronics and video games. 37. the clean trail the carpet makes. 38. revival theatres. 39. mittens. 40. elephants. 41. bubble stickers. 42. forts of all shapes and sizes. 43. when multiple pets become friends. 44. interesting looking leaves. 45. watching ants work. 46. john candy. 47. tinconderoga pencils. 48. books on tape. 49. garbage pail kids.
