    Thanks for the comments my man. I haven't really focused on progressing in a loooong time and just recently I figured there isn't any reason NOT to progress. I've always had decent (at worst) handwriting but after HS I quit dabbling into visual arts. It's taken a bit to get back into the "swing of things" so to speak and I'll be gracing you fellas with some more toy shit in the near future. I've gotten caught up in moving on with life that I left art behind, and I'm realizing that was part of what got me through a lot of tough times.

    I never said 8 years straight. I started graffiti-style art (at least) 8 years ago (I'm 24 now and started before I had my license @ 16), but it's been off and on and I never really tried to progress much as I had other things going on (College, work, etc...). Such is life though. As far as stress relief, I work on my car when I have the time/money and ride my bike almost every day. Just when I pack up a bowl and want to let my mind wander, this is what I come up with. I suppose I should post on a more "art" related forum but I'm just writing a name and figured there would still be a decent graf community around, as was the case when I was in HS. Turns out it's 90% young bucks who think their toy-ass doodles are hot shit and want to shit on everyone and 10% old school heads who know what it's like to be a toy and like to be ambassadors for the community, if you will. What's the sense in shitting on someone else if not to make yourself feel better about YOU? I'd love to know.

    I feel ya dude, I'm usually toked up a bit when I write and tend to take things a little past my abilities. I understand when someone said that i looked "forced". Sometimes I feel like I'm forcing the extensions and details. I'll make sure to post up some straight letters I've done. I guess I figured people would like the more "extravagant" pieces but I guess that was my bad. If you want to swap out some shit PM me. I'm always down to try out new letters and combinations.

    @Newk i don't wanna come of sounding like a dick so please don't read it that way. i've been writing for about 6 years (which is embarassing for someone who's at my level), but for about 4 of those years i was doing stuff like you're doing now, no structure, not really worrying that much. then this other head told me to forget my whack shit and start doing some straight simps an shit. ever since my stuff has progressed like a mofo and looks half decent. i know what your sayin about just relieving stress and you're doin your own thing an shit but once you start putting out some stuff with style and flow it feels a hell of a lot better not only doing it but looking back at it after.

    flick for talking

    Thanks for the words. I'm definitely going to try and put some effort forth now that I have some people pushing me to actually progress. I never really had the drive to when I had other shit to worry about.

    @ Peg City Boy... I understand where your coming from because ive wrote for 2 years but i started on a forum and did my research after seeing stuff on the tracks... However ive seen alot of people come along who's been writing 2 years but haven't used the internet but the internets possibly one of the best places to start nowadays i learnt so much about structure and stuff and people who join and don't know about structure are in an illusion that nothing is wrong with their work and that they rock some good shit (MINDGEM FORUM), hell half wont even listen to you...

    As for crits...
    Im not too sure... the shape of the S seems awkards... the bottom of it annoys me. I like the M... Make the O a little bit more visual. Clean your lines up etc.

    Trying too hard. Simpler. Bring your letters closer together, make them more uniform. Quit trying to throw flares everywhere.
