Robin Gunningham Stencil

What better way to perhaps mark the outing of Banksy than with a stencil?

Nice glasses. Nice haircut. I guess he pretty much looks like he could be Banksy.

Not sure how many rats he has had to personally kill but perhaps not as many as assumed.

Don't worry though. People that like Banksy will probably still like him. And people that don't like him will probably still won't like him. It's not like seeing a picture of someone or knowing their name really means all that much when it comes to interpreting graffiti.

Or does it? One less bit of intrigue. One less "guerilla" marketing arrow. Something else to argue about in wikipedia.

Read more about it elsewhere. Outrage with the press. Skepticism. And more besides.

I'd rather stencil...
