take it a day later with ur bulky pro camera during the day, and if someone questions you just say i like graffiti art so im taking pictures of it.

if anyone asks you anything, tell them to shut the fuck up and mind their own business. your not doing anything illegal. and hah, i would totally jack paint if i saw little kids bombing around here. im 6'2'', 200 pounds, so i got shit made for me lol.

I want to start racking up on paint. Theres the place in my city thats like a home mom and pop shop version of home depot. It doesnt have any cameras. But when I walk in the 1 cash register desk is right there by the sliding door. It is summer like 100 degrees so its not like I can walk in with a jacket because that would seem pretty suspicious. At the same time so is a kid walking in by himself with a backpack. what should I do? Are there any other ways?

BomberJordan, ask around like the guys that you mobbing with and such, or people u know that write, if u dont know anyone, go to the Long Island picture thread and PM a dude that post in that thread and ask him if he knows.

now for my problem: okay my dad found my paint and threw it out, i was amazed he didnt kick my ass but still, thats like $30-$50 of paint he threw out but im not gunna stop bombing, whats some paint thats, great for bombing, but cheap?

PYT!TLC!
07-22-2009, 12:13 AM
bomberjordan - I live in the picture-perfect suburbs, so i can't really help you with this. but if you look around walls and shit where lots of graff goes down, i've heard that there might be caps on the ground. but nynja's idea is good so maybe you can try that.

pronynja - rusto goes for like 2.50 at my local home-depot. colorplace is cheap i think too.

my question might be skull-numbfuckingly stupid, but my mom found out more about my graff antics, and she's really close with her co-workers. so she asks one of co-workers about it, and apparently one of them knows a graffiti muralist.
my mom calls the graffiti muralist up for a small conversation, and tells a little about me. he said that i should practice in my backyard for awhile before i touch any walls, and he also said to not get arrested to my mom.

this made for a shockingly awkward conversation with my mother. should i be really fucking happy that a muralist gave me advice, or really fucking nervous that my mom knows that i might be illegaly doing shit and totally fuck me up?

quip
07-22-2009, 12:25 AM
Ha, dude you seem to be asking a question that only you have the answer to...

MY situation is that my mom knows of my writing, but not that I am doing anything illegal... She is under the impression that I make stickers only for shipping out to other people.

But... take the muralist's advice in practicing a ton and when you do decide to take to the streets... do so in places where your mother would NEVER come across... if your mom is the type to kill you if she finds your scribblings

JustChillin
07-22-2009, 03:10 AM
PYT i would take advantage of this. Your mom seems to be cool with it, shes just concerned if your taking your graff out into the streets. If shes supporting you then convince her to buy you cans therefore you can practice in your backyard (like the muralist said) and then save some cans on the side for when you want to go bombing. I dont know if your the one to lie to your mom and tell her your not doing it illegally.

TheMurderousMisterMero_
07-22-2009, 02:51 PM

just fucking do it.you dont need help from internet people.you need to go out and do it.if it has no cameras and no sensors then you should be cool.and if they try to stop you just run or walk out depending if they try to grab you or not.and dont take any more that 4 or 5 cans at a time.any more and they get suspicious and might put in even more cameras.also a bookbag is a dumb idea.like woah.

Ok well i racked my first can. I could only get one though cus i already looked weird enough with one bulging through my shirt. :/

What do you do if you accidently go over some ones tag with your throw? I did this the other day but i went over a highly respected writer i dont know if he would get mad or not cus it was his tag.

07-22-2009, 11:05 PM
If it was a tag they most likley wont get mad but if it was a piece that he threw up then uoi will most likley have beef..
But overall it depends on how the writer is...some people might get mad..
Im just saying I wouldn't care is someone went over a tag of mine...but thats just how I am..

are you joking? JustChillin did a throwie? hold on, let me go vomit.

alright, back.

Listen kids. If a person goes over your tag, you need to fuckin' chill. it's really not a big deal. Just do yours again. Now if it was a piece, or a well-done throwie, then that's a difference. But since it's just a tag, don't worry about it.


EDIT: I changed my name to Dpenz, Depends, etc. Thoughts?

TheMurderousMisterMero_

to answer chillins question it all depends on if he feels disrespected or not.im not really trippin if one of my tags gets gone over but if i think that person is trying to dis me regardless of what he uses to go over me,wether a tag,a throw or whatever, im gonna be pissed.but you might have beef.if you cant burn it dont touch it.

In some arts crafts stores / sections, look for the adhesive spray glue or whatever they're called, [they have a cap with a orange part where the spray comes out] they're resto fats. It helps whenever you go to a store you look for it, I used to get like 20 a week from various stores i'd find myself at.

before the internet how did the pros get good letters?

proNYNJA
07-23-2009, 08:52 AM
you do keyboard letters so you learn about bars and proportions, chances are backing when they didnt have keyboard letters they looked at how the stock letters were shaped.

after u learn how to do proper bars and proportions the next step is to start bending the letters and shit so it starts looking less like keyboard letters and more like graff letters. but then again some people can do pretty tight bombs wit stock letters.

edit:its mad illegal btw.dont get caugh with it ever and make sure you dont get it on your skin.3rd degree burns..god help you if that shit breaks in your pants and gets on your dick or something.plus its just a dickmove.they have to replace the whole window if you use that shit.and windows cost something like 500-2500 dollars.well inside the felony range in damages.plus alot of cities have laws against just carrying it.personally its just not worth the risk of using it for some tags that will themselves eventually be replaced...what i would do is just sell that shit to some dumb kid for money for paint.id rather get up with throws and straights and shit instead of a window tag...

look up the prices online.i think 16oz worth is anywhere from 20-25 bucks so about 5 cans worth about...depending on how much you have and how stupid the kid is.me id never use the stuff...maybe if he's a hard sell id get a few markers or something...unless you bought that shit...

Hey, does anyone know any tips for sound proofing my backpack. when i go out at night to write i park my car somewhere generic and then walk to some shady spots but my cans always make noise. I read about putting magnets on the bottom of the cans to stop the bead from moving inside it. but are there any other lil hints you got?

TheMurderousMisterMero_
07-24-2009, 07:24 PM
dont use a backpack.its mad suspect.i use like a regular grocery bag,double down.try not to move the cans to much is the best thing.colorplace seems to clack the most.magnets only work if the balls inside the can are metal and usually there not.usually their just marbles...you best bet is maybe wrapping them in a shirt or something like that or maybe a tubesock or two.the main thing is to not have them move around alot...i really dont have that problem to often idk i guess i just dont move my cans too much.if you keep them upright the whole time that should help too if the balls are shifting.the cans making noise is the least of your problems..no ones gonna know unless their like right next to you...and if a cop sees you with a bookbag he's gonna check it regardless of it theres cans in it or not.so dont trip on it too much.just keep them upright and try to stop them form moving.and if you have to wrap em up in a shirt or something...

Where the two colours meet take the can and while still holding the cap down move it onto the other colour while pulling away from the wall and that will give you a basic fade. Its just shading..

I know at swap meets and flea markets, this mexican lady was willing to sell me deco paint markers but too bad i didnt have any money

Seriously if you really want to get ahold of paint the easiest thing to do is just rack your cans from local hardware stores.

I dont think theres one person in the world who can answer that question. The best way is practice, practice, practice. Weather it be the fog in the window of the car, concrete about to dry, whatever, make it a habit to constantly practice your handstyle on every serface you get your hands on. Handstyles will always continue to be a true representation on your inner style, unlike graffiti 3d lettering, its always possible for no one to be able to cap your handstyle. Reason being is because that my friend, is truely one of the most original part or any graffiti artist's work that no one can take from you.

marker and color fades not with paint are a tricky subject. i'm not even that good at them, but i know basically how to do it.

say youre coloring your piece with a blue to grey fade like i did here

http://i434.photobucket.com/albums/qq68/slaphousekids/SL730162.jpg

First, I started with the top and colored blue downwards. You should work quickly, cause the colors blend the best while wet. once you reach the point where they meet, you use the grey and "push" into the blue. there really isnt any better way to describe that than with the word push.

To even out the fade, go back with the blue, then maybe again with the grey, etc etc etc.

Legit, the best way to figure it out is to just practice a million times and get your understanding of markers and shit down. Btw, I used Prismacolor markers WITHOUT a colorless blender to do that fade up there ^. personally i dont suggest them.

hope i helped someone or another

Well it depends on how bright the blue red lime green is... and how dark the dark surface is. Just make sure its not a black marker on a black wall, use common sense. A white wall would be good for a black marker or even a gray wall, a black wall is good for a white marker...

Fabric markers is very broad, do you mean like a normal marker instead of paint or ink flow? If so they are easy to buff because it's just marker, for example a permanent marker is easily removed but a staining ink can still have a ghost after it's been buffed several times.

You might want to send it in a box
You know how American is right now they think everything oddly shaped is a bomb

You might also have to let them know it could be explosive
Just fill them in on that it's a dead paint can
Idk chances are nothings going to happen but it's always good tot ake precautions

you cant send paint over seas unless its on a ship.the place where they store stuff for flight isnt pressurized and the shit will explode basicly.you have to send it by ship and thats probably gonna be mad expensive.if they even do that.idk if they do.

08-06-2009, 10:43 PM
i got pretty much all of the pressure out of it so i should be fine for that. i dont think im going to use a box cause they cost so much to ship. i might just use one of those bubble envelopes

edit: mero, im just sending it to the US

i don't like a tag underlined by an arrow, it generally looks novice as hell, but then I like nice clean tags, simple not to complicated with no added do das n shit, just look at Bates, he has a dope handstyle clean as hell. The only fancy tags I like are decent philly hands - but it is all just opinion, I'm not a fan of the whole MSK style of handstyle, it doesn't mean they are wack cos they aren't just means I'm not a fan

Okay in the last month in my eyes I've been getting gradually worse. It seems like everything I draw looks really bad and I am loosing the ability to draw striaght lines. Like Its not that im loosing interest in writing its more like the shit i draw now is super horrible. Like does anyone else get this. I seems like ill spend an hour working on drawing something and it will turn out horrible. Any suggestions? should i take a break for a bit or like... Oh and I've been getting tired with my name, I still want to keep it but its getting old and i hate drawing 6 letters when everyone I write with has 4 and gets done so much faster then me.

WEAKFINGERS- I feel you on that one. Im having the same problem. Can't draw latley and all what not. For me I think its because I started up smoking again.
FURY- Write whatever you feel like but make sure its something that you really want to write and you have a feel of it. And "create is a cool name but don't do twelve. Also graffiti to cops is gang related.

The original meaning from what my understanding is that if you put a one after your name means that you where the first to write the name and the best to write it. Now with people putting two and ten n' after there shit is kinda wack in my opinion.




Okay my question is whats a hipster style. I hear everyone using that term and I kinda need an example. Are these considerd hipster? Like I like the way it looks so why do i hear so many people hating on it?
Is this considerd hipster style?

Some of it can grow on you, namely Pandasex and Spray. Enuf is straight goods no matter what anyone says.

Mostly hipster ish with have simpler letters with arrows popping outta nowhere and extensions doing the same. Letters often flow into each other. Letters are sometimes ridiculous things/characters. People hate on it because stacks of artier kids got into graffiti and didn't spend time on letter form, but rather on making it look 'neat'. Flickr helped spread this style.

My character is actually only like 5 lines and takes me about 10 seconds to draw. It's basically like a tag in the way it's so damn simple. One of these days, I might do a big throwie of it with a lot more detailed stuff and some of my other characters.

But that won't be for a while.

numbers like 1, 2, 3, , 4, 5 stuff like that at the end of a tag usually means there not the first person to have the name so they put a number after their name to distinguish themselves from the rest

Keep a little bag of dog treats and if one dog wont shut up just break one in half and give it to him. But usually the owners of the dog wont come out or anything if they know their dog is always barking at something.
