THE Post's front page logo has been given a dark makeover today by one of the city's most well known street artists.
To mark the arrival of See No Evil 2012, Europe's biggest urban art project, we've given over control of our front page to some of the artists who will be painting Nelson Street. Today is the turn of Jody Thomas, who combines his graffiti skills with his role as creative director of a website development company.
Father-of-three Mr Thomas is known for his black and white portraits, inspired by music and film and moody in tone.
He said: "I've noticed that people are always drawn to darker imagery, especially on street pieces. I think they seem to strike a chord with people."
Mr Thomas began painting at the now infamous Barton Hill Youth Club under the wing of John Nation in the late 1980s.
After an 18-year break from graffiti he resurfaced following the success of Felix Braun's Children of the Can 25 Years of Bristol Graffiti book.
He said: "When I was 14 or 15 I painted this three-headed figure at Barton Hill after being inspired by Terry Gilliam's film Brazil. People loved it and I recreated it on a T-shirt and that's what got me through college. I even bought my first car with it.
"This piece is an updated version of the three heads, which have long gone from Barton Hill, but they have aged."
In a world first The Post will feature a specially commissioned logo for each day of See No Evil painting. Other artists involved are Lokey, Cheo, Acerone and Andy Council.
