On Monday Brooklyn Street Art reported the sad news of Brooklyn street artist Sure‘s death in Afghanistan, where he was a U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence Officer. The announcement came via the Brooklyn native’s friend and frequent collaborator Faust—their tags often appeared side by side or even on the same sticker, and generally in the same ornate, calligraphy-like script. The Brooklyn streetscape is as fitting a memorial for Sure as there could be, so keep your eyes peeled for his loopy lettering. (Image: Sure&Faust/Flickr)
