The London Police  Click link below for the TLP DOGUMENTARY released online 30/5/18 - mixing traveling and art since 1998 - Who Cares Wins

ROMFORD, England
A wonderful experience last week in good old Romford, Essex at 'Rom skatepark' which has recently been awarded heritage status in UK. Consequently the national lottery fund have decided to help pump some much needed financial help into this sleeping giant. Romford skatepark was built in 1978 when the diverse expanse of concrete waves fed the appetite of a new craze with unique slopes and incredible old school bowls. As teenagers Bob and i used to frequently skate here so it meant a lot to be asked back to inject some colour and creativity into the place through the efforts of @adamjwhitaker @romboys Thanks to @einesigns @mrpenfold @chinnybond who all gave up their time to come over and add some rad pieces. Hopefully this could be the start of something special as Rom skatepark aims to bring back the spirit of its more popular days through art projects and events. Follow @romboys to stay in touch with whats happening including a new documentary regarding the park by @mattharrisdp . Thanks to everyone of the staff and family for a tremondous experience and good luck moving forward #romboys #romskatepark #eine #mrpenfold #chinnybond #tonyhawk #gaytwist #frontsideboneless #nelson #nationallotteryfundingnallthat @jonniehicks96

Bob here. A fun but a rather challenging brick wall mural @kingcanary_ on the Pilotenstraat in Amsterdam. Lots of fine detail brush work on tricky bricks but thanks to the steady hands of @chinnybond @mossygiant @tessaillustration and Chris Bendall we came good. Thanks to @kallenbachgallery for making this happen

Bob here at Rom Skatepark Mural Day 2. Just loving being here at Romford UK. Chaz and I have a special affinity to this mural having skated at Rom from a young age. Amazing place and wonderful people. @jonniehicks96 @themonsternetwork @romboys @romskatepark @adamjwhitaker

Great to meet good friends in London tonight. Logans son Sailor was easy to lift. He certainly didnt have his dads wallet in his pocket @will__barras @thelorizimmer @loganhicksny @sailorhicksaroo @einesigns

Bob here. In Amsterdam this week?Thursday evening at 20:00 we’re getting together to celebrate the completion of our latest mural. Just a casual outside affair next to the wall. Bring your own drinks we’ll provide some cheese and onion flavor crisps. Zeeburgerdijk opposite the train tracks. You know where I mean. Yeah.

Bob here. Another Bowie? Yes, this commissioned painting shows Bowie pulling one of the strongest poses of his career. #bowie #legend #anotherbowie

Bob here. All done. What a journey. Loved every minute. Thanks Coen, mountains, Kim, Chris and @chinnybond and Chaz

Bob here and the Amsterdam mural which was damaged by rain and battered by winter (see photo 2) gets repaired at last. Never paint a mural in winter. Lesson learned. Now it’s time to finish this baby! Watch this space.

Around 6 years ago 'The London Police Dog Singers' recorded their album 'For dogs sake' including this spectacular track 'Dog in a box' - A film called 'Dogumentary' swiftly followed but was banned due to lack of any relevance to anything. Fortunately the world has moved on, the bans been lifted and everyone is now free to waste 17 minutes of their life watching the rise and fall of The London Police dog singers #tlpdogsingers #dogumentary #dogsongs

Firenze, Italy
The Ponte Vecchio ("Old Bridge") is a medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, built in 1345.
The London Police 'Lorse' is a character consistantly drawn around the world based on the original 'Lad' drawing invented in 1998. Thanks to @streetlevelsgallery for the photo and @chinnybond @exit.enter.k for a fun jaunt around the city last week #pontevecchio #lorse #chinnybond
