    I knew it!

    They put me in a straitjacket and locked me up when I said I saw these things!

    Hope they’ll let me out now…..

    Too many of the shadows look like demons. Some are cute, like the flowers, but why is it that so many artists tend toward darkness? Whatever happened to beauty and wholesomeness? Why not create expressions of our faith in and hope for our future instead?

      Lmao .. You are meant to face the demons and not be afraid of them. Can’t have the good without the bad …

      I don’t see anything demonic or dark. The mailbox is laughing, the dog is barking, dragons breathe fire, the rest of the are playing. It all seems rather joyous to me. It’s all in your perspective.

      The only darkness I saw was the way your mind sees innocent shadows.

    • @kpartllc June 14, 2019

      I didn’t see demons. I saw strange shadow beings having fun.
      I saw make believe fire breathing dragons looking for a princess to protect.
      I think it’s all all in your personal perspective.

      By too many, do you mean 2 of them ?

    Artists dark? No. Look at gargoyles all over churches. People have hope when they vote for compassion. Put your hope where your vote is.

    I wish I could see this in every city, everywhere.

    Excellent…. Marin would offer a nice canvas. And parts of SF. (Clean parts)

    Love this… Bridgeport, CT …. this would look good on you!!

  11. That’s pretty cool! I’d like to see more things like this done across the U.S. Give people a smile as they walk by.

    Love the creatively. Keep up the good work.

  13. I love it, I think it’s cool and it gives you something to think about. I’d love to see it in other places as well.

  14. Is this Redwood City, CA, next door to my hometown Menlo Park? So many changes, it must be but I don’t recognize it! Great pics!

  15. I like it! I think it’s a really cute idea. Creativity is what you make of it. Thanks for bringing a little levity to what is prolly an otherwise monotonous walk thru town!

    Bad idea. Next there’ll be non-union artists painting all over things. No control, lose of integrity follows. Oh the humanity!

    Love it. What a creative idea!

  18. @kpartllc on fb June 14, 2019

    Love this… We need this done around Atascocita and Humble, Texas!

  19. I love these so much I can hardly bear it!

    Very creative! Where are the other shadows though?

    • if you take pics on a cloudy overcast day there are no shadows.

      Are you asking what city (they’re all in Redwood City) or saying you can’t see the other ones ? I love when cities try to find creative ways to promote themselves.

      They’re hiding. Try shining a flashlight & you might find some

    Fantastic! We need more of this imagination. Not all art appeals to everyone. That’s why it’s great. ♥

  22. Karen Jones June 15, 2019

    Enjoyed the art and effort to get a reaction. Well done and you are welcome to come to Maryville, MO .

  23. Amanda Fields June 15, 2019

    Great, great idea. Great work!

  24. I would love to see them in person. 🖤🖤🖤
    Where is Redwood City?

    Somebody is going to have a really bad drug trip

    They are whimsical.

    Well, I mostly see robot versions of animals, and pretty friendly ones as that. Demons, where?

  28. These are awesome! Love them all. How incredibly creative!

  29. I truly think that they are fantastic, anyone who can express through art should never be put down but praised if someone is looking at it as bad then maybe they should look inward because everyone sees it and determines their own meaning try to look on the fun and neat side not the dark , great job to all the artists who did these wonderful expressions

  30. Where is Redwood city?

    • Redwood City is in San Mateo County which is on what is known as ‘The Peninsula’… the long finger-ish shaped isthmus that generously provides the 49 square miles San Franciscans call ‘The City’. The Peninsula is also the separator that creates the Southern portion of the San Francisco Bay… Redwood City can be found if you are patient and pay attention – otherwise you may find yourself distracted and before you know it you’ve become obsessed with a new destination to never arrive at! 😶… wait, WHAT ⁉️

  31. Very cool!

  32. Ed Barrett July 2, 2019

    So….Where is Redwood City???
