The Elusive Knoxville Panda (UH)

And now for something completely different!

For years, there's been a local graffiti artist who has been leaving his tag all throughout town, sometimes in the craziest of places. I have no idea who this graffiti artist is, however, his tag, which is always a stylized "PANDA" (and an "UH" whatever that means) continues to fascinate me: you never know when you're going to see a new one, or where you'll end up finding it, but this is one of the reasons I continue to be fascinated - it's like a great, big, calligraphic Easter egg hunt. And one of the intriguing things about these PANDA tags is that they're a lot like snowflakes: each one is different from the other, which makes looking for and finding them an even bigger treat - the way I see it, the more detailed and elaborate they are, the better!

Anyway, my fascination with PANDA has grown as the years have passed, so I decided to produce this fake, pseudo-nature documentary of the various different PANDA tags we have throughout town:
