Lenny's Girl

I was driving with Ela last night and as we drove by the You Go Girl tag I lamented the fact that it's been so long since new Blah Girls have been spotted, and that I feared she might be gone forever. A couple of my readers here have posted that some Cabbagetown neighborhood association had published online information about where the Blah Girl creator lives as part of their "crack down" on street art. I wouldn't blame the Blah Girl creator at all for being more cautious under these terms.

But then when I checked my email moments later, I got a message from the lovely Jana who sent pictures of a Girl she had found at Lenny's Bar on Friday night. I just LOVE this Girl too. I love the fat marker and the contrast between her blackest black and the whiteness of the wall and sink- not to mention her mischievous expression. Ela commented that I should try to get the same design down over my kitchen sink which I think would be terrific.

Thank you Jana for proof that she is not gone! And Blah Girl Creator- if you're out there, keep the Girls coming and holler if you want some commissioned work!
