So far, the most I've vandalized is my book--and I just picked that shit back up again, I just can't find motivation to do it all the time, that and I get stressed because I have other shit to do. But I want to put some more time into it, because I like how I feel when I do it. I've had oppourtunities to go tagging with other people, but the dudes at my school are all into the "SFC" shit, they tag schools, and they're dumb ass fuck--that's not me. I don't tag schools and I damn sure can't take shit from Marc Ecko's game and I can't get down with stupid people in something like Graffiti. Then again, I can't get UP either because I have no paint, and no other connects to the graff in my city--I'm in New Orleans, and I know n iggas like Ser and Ink and Harsh are bombing all over the place, but what are the chances of running into people like that y'know?

    Excuse the rant, I just have alot on my head. Alright, my questions are:

    How do you balance Graff with life and goals and shit?
    How do you even get started?
    Where can you meet other writers?
    I know how you feel man I was tagging shit at this rink I play hockey at every now and then and some little shits busted me. Luckily I know the GM and she let me slide I just have to paint and help clean up when she needs it. Everyone said I should stop doing graf, but I cant help it. I'm stuck, I cant get it out of my head...When I drive I dont see the speed limit I see the blank spot on the sign and go "tag!" blank walls give me goosebumps(theres no graf in my town so theres ALOT&#33 Any Semis or trains or electrical boxes or delivery trucks I think graf with everything. The kids that got me into it, dont understand anything, they got into graf because of banksy(sigh) love his work but they dont move on....I got addicted. I got big plans for my future and i cant afford to fuck up anymore...but I'm not stopping, I'm addicted, I'm just more careful, and thank god for not tagging your school! Dont shit where you eat.(learned that with the rink) Just play it as safe as you can and if your looking for time...Practice everywhere...I've had both arms covered in diff handstyles because I had no paper at work. Its a part of you, literally.

    When I&#39;ve done them I&#39;ve used normal arylics, you only really need the primary colours (to mix from) + black and white and you are good to go. Outline I go with paint pen ("uni posca fine", which is actually water based but seems to work ok for me over acylic).

    Havent got any canvas pics on PC really &#39;cept this unfinshed stuff but shows you how the acylics come up I guess. This is on non-undercoated canvas.

    I&#39;m gonna have an emo rant now.

    I fucking love graffiti, so before anyone starts going &#39;fuck real writers don&#39;t quit&#39; fuck you, I&#39;m just as dedicated as you.

    Graffiti is a fucking huge part of my life, probably the biggest, I fucking love it, I think about it all the time, I sketch all the time, I spend huge amounts of time hunting out supplies, experimenting with shit, making graff related shit. I mean like at the moment, there&#39;s not much more in life that I care about than graff.

    But the thing is, I fucking suck at art and graffiti. I couldn&#39;t draw to save my fucking live. I&#39;ve been sketching for like a year now, I&#39;ve seen a lot people come on to this forum and then get shitloads better, yet I haven&#39;t moved on fuck all. I&#39;ve tried everything, starting extremely simple, starting off more complex, but nothing works.

    I wanna be good at graffiti, I know being the best is an unrelistic dream but fuck I try extremely hard yet I don&#39;t get better. I don&#39;t expect to be burning over night, even over a year but seeing some progress would be nice.

    Shit pisses me off :angry:

    My life sucks, cry me a river.

    Anyways, hope you enjoyed that.

    A year aint that long man at all and to be honest you should never sketch something you are actually happy with, well maybe content at the time but you should constantly know that you could do better in your mind then what you are physically producing. I post down here for several reasons and one of them is that everything I sketch will seem toy to me within days, weeks, sometimes hours. Your mindset is a lot more important in the longterm then the quality of work you are putting out as of now. If it is that big of a part in your life then you are good to go, this shit doesn&#39;t take months or a few years to master, you can never really "master it" ...and to get to a place where you feel your shit is up to par takes years and years. Artistic talent to start with is a big fuckin help but it isn&#39;t the be all and end all. I&#39;ve been doing this shit on and off for about 15 years and I have seen mates go from &#39;can&#39;t draw a stick figure&#39; to burning shit up, sometimes you plateau and sometimes you go backwards but it&#39;s a slow and ongoing process. The will to improve and it not being a "fad" to you is the key imo, you&#39;ll get there.

    Cheers boss, wasn&#39;t really expecting any replies like that.

    I get what you&#39;re saying, just that I see everyone elses good shit, and it fucks me off at how I&#39;m not good, especially when it&#39;s by people who have been writing for less time than me.

    Thanks again.

    yo d_g,I know what you saying man.. I fucking suck at art and I have also been writing for a year... And I still think most of my stuff is pretty crappy BUT.. Only in the past 2 weeks have I actually felt like I am improving.One day you will see yourself starting to develop..I can&#39;t recall seeing any of your stuff (I`m bad with remembering names) so I don&#39;t know what it&#39;s like.. But I also just wanted to give up some times.. If you&#39;re younger it&#39;s better too,I`m 20 so yeah... And I do NOTHING,so in the past few weeks I`ve been sketching like a mad fuck,pumping out 5 or 6 pages a day or something.Way I found myself getting better was just really not giving up (I did stop for a few months but that wasn&#39;t related) but I totally get what you&#39;re saying when you feel like you&#39;re the worst of what you&#39;re seeing around (well that`s how I felt),but I`m sure if you go back and look at your very first sketches you`ll see progress now.. things just get better

    why you gotta ask other people if YOUR name that YOU want to write is ok? I mean unless you hear about someone profilic with that name you shouldn&#39;t ask for permission to use it..... do whatever you fuckin want...

    Yeah don&#39;t go asking people if this name is OK and whatnot. Come up with a name that you like and see if it exists.

    It&#39;s taken me forever to find a word I love to write, i&#39;ve changed it probably about 3-4 times now. Finally i&#39;ve got one that i&#39;m sticking to because it has meaning. I finally choose SOMEONE because that&#39;s exactly what I am.

    I&#39;ve had so many names.... it&#39;s good to experiment starting out to find which letters you like and dislike, so you don&#39;t get so set on a name that has shit loads of meaning and compassion, only to find out you CAN&#39;T FUCKING STAND the letters.

    Thanks for the help. Another question, do you think decocolours are good on canvases? I&#39;m also using these paint markers http://www.dickblick.com/zz213/12/ and wondering if they&#39;re any good also.

    You are headed in the right direction if you want to make sure your life goes the way you want it. It makes me happy thatI&#39;m not the only one worried about effing up my life with graffiti, just do it when you want/can do it and just have fun and work hard at everything you do in life...haha i sound like a parent
