  "A liquid secreted by the mucous membranes of mammalians."  That is the Wikipedia description of Phlegm, as well as the name of the artist who painted this mural in Sheffield, England.

Eric Elms is not much of a "street artist."In fact, he's probably the farthest from that title but has created some great work in spaces viewable from the street.  A highly successful designer and responsible for many well known logos, Elms also makes interesting font based sculptures.  He just had a solo exhibition in Paris last week and we were reminded of how much we enjoy his work.
