Quoted from DocDock
If you've ever lived in the GY/Cleethorpes area, chances are you'll have seen this graffiti artist name about, somewhere.

I'm not the graffiti artist though, just needed a name to register with and this is the only one i could think of at the time.


yep,iv'e seen this "tag" all over starting way back in the 1970s,not sure i would describe his as an "artist" though mate, true graffiti art is the stuff sprayed on the wall in ainslie street park,and in the old subways in town in the 70s/80s. iv'e been into hip-hop and rap for a while now and graffiti was a big part of it,oh the memories of happier times eh?i wonder if this doc/ock guy is still alive? it would be great to meet him,what a legend.


irony................its a bit like brassy,only made from iron!   (baldrick,blackadder)

Grimsbys answer to banksy,although he probably could have put a bit more effort into it

Originally called GrimGary for obvious reasons but decided to shorten it to just GG because I'm a lazy twit.

I'll help you out....SNOOZE is Swahili for "I know absolutely nothing about football" and I thought it summed me up very well so was an obvious username.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.
