These mysterious ghosty creatures are all over SoHo and NoLIta, signed "Cheekz." Rounded blobs with protruding teeth, they look sort of like schmoos with a creepy edge.
Most of the time, they're pasted onto walls. This is a rare example of a stenciled Cheekz blob.
I like this one a lot - a bit colorful and personalized to me. I'm not sure why his eyes are bleeding. I don't want to think about it.
Most of the time they seem a little perplexed or confused. This guy looks jubilant - but again, in a disturbed-looking way.
