    im 20 n well i think i got simple block letters down pat i got tht down in high skool i understand n kno how to create symmetry with simple letters i kno tha basics in shading, 3d, and perspective so is tha next step workin on creatin my own style or is there some other basics i should kno before gettin into tht?

    Style is your personal feel on your letters. You can forget about all those rules.

    My take on it is be humble and make yourself knowledgable on the subject and have fun with it. I take it seriously but not too serious, I can't really paint much because I'm older than most of you guys and have a family, job responsibilities and can't really be fucked with the whole bombing thing, I have been there and done that, don't get me wrong I like to get out and hit a trackside every now and again but I'm more about chill walls I can spend all day at and produce something good.

    Just sketch and sketch and try new things, don't worry if it is shit, it is just a blackbook, believe me I have probably about 1500 images on my photobucket just from the last 2 years, keep doing simples and learn the letter structure, but don't just do your own name, do battles and exchanges you may get inspiration from other people's letters, just experiment, once you can rock a clean simple with no pensil just a marker then elaborating on those letters will become easy and your style will develop

    if it is done well then yea I do like it, however I have much more respect for a well executed simple than some half assed wildstyle, but to me it has to have a solid letter foundation in a wildstyle. check out a writer like Folk his letters are fucking rocking but also have a simplistic edge but then when it is Ouija he has a dope abstract nature to his letters. I like a lot of european writers as well, Copenhagen has some dope writers, I like wildstyle stuff that has a nod to the classic era of graffiti. I'm not so into the whole MSK scene, they are fucking dope not taking away from them, but there are many other writers that I would rather look at.

    i like complicated stuff too if its done right, but like you said it needs to be executed correctly, id say msk are some of my fvorite writers atm but your right there are masny others who ares lept on, i happen to love la writers for some reson soething about there style to me shines over the rest, ny writers are pretty sick too, pretty much anywhere were theres a descent sized scene i guess

    Streaking deals with the nib, not so much of the paint/ink. All that will do is thin down the paint/ink.

    Push down on the nib till it's really juiced and ready to go.

    Regardless of what I post I don't condone any illegal graffiti, although I stayed at a holiday inn once.
