Yellow Bird Parking Patrol

While I was in Kensington Market a couple of weeks ago I discovered this garage which was covered in little yellow birds and friends warning that this was a no parking area. Once again artist UB5000 has created an amusing addition to the streetscape. I love the little yellow bird playing poker with the dogs and winning judging by his piles of chips. There are so many quirky details in this one which actually wraps around the side of the garage too!

This is hilarious, our posting the very same mural on the same Monday! And it looks like we were both in Kensington Market at nearly the same time! Were you there for the festival? I knew I was treading on you Hogtowners' territory, risking exactly this... but hey! How fun! Too bad we did not meet in person. And earlier today as I was preparing my post my jet-lagged brain just couldn't remember it was you who'd been posting the yellow birds! Anyway, it IS a cool mural.

How neat that you and Francisca both posted the same mural today! With your view, I can appreciate it more without the other artist in front. There is a lot to look at! :)

This is hilarious. Two people half way around the world from each other posting the same mural photo. Anyway I like your photo the best. Just don't tell Francisca.

Blimey. I think you should attach a SAM7 to your car!
Nice pix!

This is the coolest garage I've ever seen!
I really like the yellow birds, but you know dogs are my favourite, right?! :)

It could take all evening to take all this in! What a great mural! The ubiquitous yellow bird is full of fun! And the dogs with the hats! Wow! A treasure!

Another great mural, that lil yellow bird sure gets around.

I am so in love with this guy, his sense of humor is just amazing. I also love how the no parking is so well implied and yet not in your face. Great mural, great capture.

Now that's the way to do up your garage doors!!

Yellow bird is showing his versatility in this mural. He even sings karaoke. But I wonder if he cheats at cards? Do you think the dogs are by Ub5000 too? What do you make of the painter Francisca caught who has added to the mural? Maybe UB5000 in disguise? Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.

I like the Uber Chick. Fun mural.

Great minds! Love the fact that you two posted the same mural...unawares!

The 'No Parking' sign was the last thing I saw, too much other stuff to look at!

What an interest mural this is. Having two posting certainly added to the excitement.

I can see why This UB5000 has become a favorite of your area.

How cute and funny this is! I have this vision of many people standing in front of this wall for hours as they try to see all the different stories. Or with little kids having them count the number of yellow birds.
