|Roller Rat by Banksy|
Everyone's probably familiar with England's (in)famous street artist, Banksy. But perhaps you were like me and unaware of this particular piece which has a hilarious back story. Given a museum show in Bristol, Banksy had several rooms of his work, plus he put things amongst the museum's regular collection.
Lo and behold, the art world's darling, Damien Hirst, had one of his ridiculously expensive spot paintings housed there. And that is what it looks like now after Banksy painted over it adding his trademark rat. hee hee hee.
Okay, now you're ready to see what I've done after the break!

I actually have detailed shots of the garment on my dress form for those of you who might be interested. Just click on Clothes for Winter under "The Artist Not Wearing Banksy or Hirst" to see 'em.
And now, I'm joining Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style as well as the crowd at Monday Mingle. To see what others did with Banksy's artwork, check Style Imitates Art on Tuesday. Can't wait. I'm going to take part in Lakota's Ta-dah Tuesday and the Pleated Poppy too.
And since I've decorated myself, more or less, I'm in for the Ethical Fashion Bloggers December Christmas challenge. It illustrates my thoughts about the holidays exactly come to think about it.
