All of you need to get this. It's available for the cheap price of shove it down your pants and walk the f*ck out of Borders, f*ck paying $50.

Anyone else hate the faux-busted-stars more than the blue squares?

No, no it's not. I am a writer, I am not an artist. I don't believe in the words "street art", because it's a bunch of bullsh*t that hipster dumbasses use. Stencils are fine here, however.

That being said, develop a hand and a throw, unless you plan on doing nothing but stencils, which I don't really advise against. Dude here's got hella ups with a kool aid man stencil, he recently started painting it too. tounge.gif

Its all pretty interesting stuff, I've never been good with a spray can so I steer clear, but I do admire the skill it takes.

Here's a few photos from my home town. They're not the most artistic of people (most of them probably have around 8 fingers on each hand anyway) but I thought I'd share regardless.

user posted image user posted image user posted image


The first one is a changing rooms for a local under-16's football team, littered with scrawls. The next is a steel bridge over some railway lines. There's a lot of bridges in my town and almost every single one has some "art" on it. The third one is a container used as a storage shed in the park and every time it gets too cluttered, they get a new one, which then gets tagged even more. Vicious circle.

These are in the skatepark just up the road from me, which routinely undergoes cleaning. As fast as they can get rid of it, it goes right back up. The amount of layers there is mindblowing. I remember marking the ramp on the first picture for the first time before it got completely covered with other works.

This next lot are done by two local artists, known as "Clic" and "8 Ball". I know one of them very well, and considering how much of a nerd he is, he can sure spread those 8 Ball tags anywhere he goes. Clic controversially tags buildings, ranging from the local corner shop to a Christian Awareness building, as pictured. I've stuck these in links as I've reached my ten image per post limit. 8 Ball, more 8 Ball, Clic and one I don't recognize.

For the "person" that just reported Laz's post; pay attention.

It wasn't Masterkraft's work, so he's not "diss"ing "that guys work platently". wink.gif

Oh and, that's not my spelling mistake, obviously.

I'll make sure it will. Have you considered taking up graff and writing it? tounge.gif

Been working on a new throw lately, it's f*cking terrible though. I don't know if I should even bother posting flicks.

Man, didnt realise there was a graf thread here. Its been years since me and my mates used to bomb up underpasses, was thinking of dropping by the shops the other day and pick up some colours but never got round to it.

Still sketch a bit in my spare time, but its never anything more serious than a 5 minute job, might post up a few of them nonetheless

ps - nice job OH, looking good man...

Yeah post away man..always good to see what styles people are rocking. I was thinking about getting some throw based battles goin on, nothing special..fairly simple, time limit on em and that. Nothing brings improvement like competition. Dunno if it would really take off tho.

Gentlemen, what I am about to show you may induce crying, fits of laughter, and/or rolling on the floor. Watch these.
