TXMX Rings Out 2021 with Fresh Stencil Pics

Hamburg DE
TXMX, walking the streets with a camera :)

There is a reason why the Stencil Archive has an album just for photographs from Hamburg. Beyond the fact that there has been a strong presence of street stencils in Hamburg for about two decades now, the Stencil Archive always receives an annual end-of-year submission zip file from the artist documentarian TXMX.

As we've said in the past, TXMX has been one of our longest and most prolific contributors to the Stencil Archive project. He is definitely a solid citizen of the Stencil Nation, and we are deeply grateful for his photographs, art, and collaborations. 

As 2021 draws…

Short-term fix equals new images to upload

Submitted by russell on Mon, 11/22/2021 - 14:36

As I have recently mentioned, the demise of Adobe Flash had broken our ability to upload images to our outdated Archives photo album setup. 

While our sysadmin furiously works on creating a new, 2021-quality overhaul of the whole Archive...

...we have GOOD NEWS!

A temporary fix got installed to replace the broken Flash part, and a few early attempts to upload to the current gallery folders proved successful.

It is time once again to get some new images up on the site.

We are quite behind and have a goodly-sized stack to get through (not to mention a back up of other sources to pull from).

Can't wait to share our backup images, which go back to late June 2021.

Stencils in Media While We Remodel the Archives

Submitted by russell on Wed, 11/03/2021 - 08:03

You may have noticed that the Stencil Archive photo albums have not been updated in a while. This doesn't mean that we haven't been collecting images from around the world. This just means that the Archives are the older part of the website, and uploading images was based on Adobe Flash. Now that Flash is completely obsolete, our Archives are in the slow, very slow, process of being redesigned. They still work for viewers like you, but uploading new images is offline at the moment.

Finding an image on a movie, show, or in a comic, would go into the "Stencils in Media" Archive. Since our uploading capability is down, here is a fun one from today by Wayno and Piraro, the sharp creators of the Bizarro daily strip. As soon as we get the Archives going again, it'll be there too.
