“Dear PoPville,

Best known for his colorful, animated characters – local mural and graffiti artist Kelly Towles, has original pieces painted around the city. But just suddenly he’s the recipient of some less-than-pleasing tagging. Shortly after finishing his first Georgetown piece, someone attempted to destroy it with black markings of a male body part. Being the dope artist that he is – he immediately set to reconstruct. He says he got a ton of love and support while out there, and even an extra panel to paint. And then someone told him that his legendary “Scout” piece on 12th and W was also tagged. He still had his paint on him from Georgetown – so of course he went to reconstruct that one as well. And then he took to social media to hilariously critique the stylings, or lack of – that these people used. Don’t mess with Kelly Towles.

Any tips to who might be attempting to ruin his art?”
