Or is it just a coincidence that the two biggest phish songs named after animals seem to be referenced, along with the donut pattern? I know nothing about Phlegm. Is he a Phan?
I tried to hook him with Rift once. He wasn't into it. I suspect it's coincidence

My mind went to Fishman immediately when I saw this. I like the Posselope potential. Guyutica was special.
Glad I wasnt the only one who thought this right away. I am only just starting to get into Phlegm so I had no idea. His style can be a bit jarring for the uninitiated, like myself, but I got over that and now I am just intrigued.

Almost forgot this duke existed.

P.S. How do these street artists fund their travels around the world when they almost never sell any fudge? Do they get paid to paint walls?

For festivals, they generally receive a stipend which subsidizes some, but usually not all of their costs.

I think it is pretty rare that artists get paid for the wall itself, unless specifically commissioned by a company/organization to do it.

In some cases, yes.

In Phlegm's case, I doubt it. He very quietly made 125,000GBP on the book alone, plus another 35,000GBP on the tardy animal stampede.
