Fixed! No https/SSL issues here...

...carry on! With our webadmin on an awesome EU concert tour, Stencil Archive had a insecure moment. Thanks to tech help at my web hosting company, all is well. Strangely enough, the site that hosts my tours was down at the same time. It's back up, too.

Still not looking through https? Perhaps clear your browser cache/history.

Blame it on the alien overlords!

Stencil Marks the Spot w. Mona Caron

I had a fun evening helping Mona Caron cut out the stencil she designed for this mural. We had tried before. A while back, I was going to cut/paint another stencil for another public art project of hers, but the muraled utility box was taken off the streets before the stencil could get painted. In the best way, these utilitarian stencils allow the viewer of the mural to see it at its best angle. Mona painted this ribwort plaintain weed in a way that makes it look flat on an unflat surface. Watch the video, and the stencil marks the spot to stand and see the magic!
