if u have to get your insperation and ideas of other peoples work u cannot be very good at graff because real graff is thought of by your self with no influence from drugs. so get your own style dont steel it. or change other peeps..

that&#39;s the same with me too, it&#39;s like my body goes on auto pilot and I can make lines that are even and stuff better than I would if I were really awake. At least that&#39;s how it feels.


Ideas for peices just always come to me, I never have problems coming up with ideas. The only thing I have trouble coming up with is time to do my peices

what im saying. is if you wernt on drugs (you are sober) it would take you longer to think of something. and it might not be as good as if you were high. unless you are really imaginitive with out drugs and really creative.

like the guy who made that disney movie fantashia. (spelling) was on drugs.

all these things you guys do proves your very intense about graff, when i smoke i just chill and laugh, when im hungry i eatm tired i sleep...i sketch when im bored and have no weed or food haha

oh yes and someone mentioned look at other workm that just compels many to bite if they cant think of any original ideas

06-16-2006, 08:09 PM
yeah thats biting, no matter what way you look at it. looking at your other sketches sometimes helps me. maybe to perfect thet sketch or take a letter or two out of it.

...That's called "not having writers block." To me, writers block is when you're sketching the same old shit and not coming up with anything new or inspiring. If you learned a new trick, you aint got writers block.

A couple months ago, I had a psychotic, enraged breakdown over my writer's block, that involved trashing my blackbook and emptying paint on the wall in a small circle repeatedly, and throwing things.

ESKiMO2
05-10-2008, 01:11 PM
I forget who said this (may have been Dare) Theres a point in your writing career that you feel like you've gone through it and done everything but if you keep going and get past that point it really pays off.

Hobbes
05-11-2008, 12:24 AM
probably whenever I'm putting symbolism in it someway or just really thinking about how I want the piece to go.

but also probably when I'm feeling...emotional somehow, like if I'm really pissed off, thats kinda the only emotion I have since they all just lead up to that one. Thats when I just force myself to draw and ignore the other stupid shit, thats when I usually start accidentlly adding shit that could mean something.

like if I decide I want an extension to go behind a certain letter then come out in front of the next one real big its kinda like I'm sneaky but I'm in your face too, ya know?

I don't know, I usually try to think of a reasoning behind some of the shit I'm doing, sometimes you just throw an extension on the end of a letter 'cause you know you can put it there, but sometimes you know you wanna do cut-throughs through the whole piece 'cause you just wanna stab someone.

But also, as far as writing block goes and not being able to get shit done, I can always tag, no matter what. Its quick and easy to write a single word, then you can just keep writing that word. If I can't get a piece right, at least I know I can get a good tag done if I keep practicing it on the same paper, sometimes after I do that I try 'n piece again...it doesn't always work. A tag is a small piece though, I get almost as much satisfaction from doing a really innovative, clean tag and imagining it all blown up, the letters in 3d and all colored.

Hey guys, long time since I've been here... anyway.. thought I might be able to get some help..

Over the months, I've developed a form of 'writer's block' for artistry. Whenever I pick up a pen or a pencil, I can't picture... or imagine.. or think of anything to draw. So I just make faces out of circles... but I do still keep up on the sketching of graffiti... but I ONLY seem to draw the letter 'S'... everytime I pick up a pencil or what have you... it's like this...
Just wondering if either
A: Anyone has gone through this...
B: What I can do to fix it..

Now I saw the thread on 'if you need motivation (or whatever it said' with all the sick shit in it... didn't really help.. just pissed me off that I can't draw like that anymore. ...

there's alot of things you can do to overcome this and some things work better than others but these are just suggestions of what gets me by,
1. Take a walk, stroll, drive, and look at things experience your city and gain inspiration for what it has to offer
2. Sketch through it. its hard at first but put time into a work and push yourself through it. By the time your finished it'll be 3 in the morning but your head will be swarming with ideas
3. Draw in a friends blackbook some people produce better artwork if its for someone, the need to do good and impress others with your artwork
4. Do what your willing to do. not everyday are you going to be ready and willing to do a two page wildstyle burner. do simple shit if your feeling lazy but always keep yourself drawing
5. Don't let anything block your creativity, get wild, its just a drawing it doesn't mean it has to be shown to the world so try weird shit you wouldn't normally do

thats all i got for now ill write more if i think of anymore tips
