On the spot where the old French Cottage used to stand – which you can see here – there was a nice clean brick wall just crying out for some tagging.

Pemex, Arek and Blah filled the bill with color coordinated pink and yellow.

These pieces will be gone before you know it.

Another great batch of pieces that I noticed have been whitewashed recently include the 8-bit Che on Santa Monica. I had hoped this one would remain since it looked like it might have been approved by the building owners. But I guess not.

It looked like everything from that post is now wiped away.

Here's a little extra: A couple of Shark Toof paste-ups on the side of LA Weekly's building.
