The Urban Spaceman, Baby

The Mardyke Walk area has a number of cool, computer-game themed bits of graffiti on its walls. Today's post is one of the more charming pieces, some tense-looking spaceman figures running across a few bricks along the Walk.

Thanks to Psychonautes and Flickr, I know these figures are by Starman Super and they depict "Megaman" running. Cool....

I took these photos in September 2012.

Here is a link to Starman Super's Flickr page, where he has a photo of the above piece taken before it got damaged:

And, just in case you are interested, here is a link to a performance of the song "I'm The Urban Spaceman" by the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, circa 1968.... Enjoy!
