Check out Graffiti Archaeology for a fun, historic ride on some of the painted walls in San Francisco.
Stencil Archive News
Mia Rovegno brings you a piece on stencil warriors Josh MacPhee and
Russell H., including a guided tour through the City, rich with a
history of public archives
"the internet's largest collection of stencil graffiti images and information"
Well, not really (thanks to Stencil Rev), but it is the largest in the USA!
Check out their blurb
All the archive names and directories have been updated. There have been many name changes and some consolidation (for example, there is now a "Random USA" Archive instead of "Eastern USA" and "Western USA"). If you have linked anything within the Stencil Archives, those links are effectively broken. A few updates to the Stencil Archives include geotagging, keyword tags, and social media sharing.
Here's Part 3 of all the latest uploads. The total uploads for the past few days is 275. Thanks to everyone who has submitted over the past month or so!
Next steps again: update Drupal, add site theme to Gallery archives, and enjoy.

Just went through most of the Archives, changing those pesky "album###" to the actual name of the artist or location. Changed dozens of albums so now you see clean links instead of odd numbered directories.
This is Part 1 of the uploads. San Francisco pics and Europe pics will be uploaded tomorrow. These archives will undergo the above mentioned changes too, making their links more understandable.
