    For SNEAK-I'd just try writing the number 8 over and over again. Before I got arrested-my name included an "S" in it and one of the older dudes that I learned a lot from recommended that I simply try to try to incorporate the flow of the number 8 into the letter "S". In addition-I'd just recommend biting as hard as possible off of dudes like TWIST, AMAZE and OCLOCK. By bite I mean try to copy their tag exactly or as precisely as you can. There's always all this shit about biting but it's one of the only ways you can learn "flow"-otherwise you're trying to invent something too early in the game in which-and no offense-you don't know too much about the entire graffiti game yet.

    Now can ANYONE help me with my THEM tag from the last page?

    let's see, from everyone biting each other's shitty throwups, to whack hand steez, to little/no peices (maybe on the tracks but that's pretty much it) to people not even trying at all......take your pick.


    if you wanna see some good graffiti ride the number 7 subway to queens... from manhattan (needa transfer)

    I've been doing hand style stuff before I even knew I liked graffiti so it comes pretty naturally to me. I try to be swift and quick but accurate at the same time.

    I write elm and my question is, is it normal to have trouble with getting the capitol L to look legit? I have drawn it a bazillion times. I can draw it very easily the keyboard way, but whenever I try bending it, it looks like garbage.

    None of those letters really flow together with each other-not to mention but the proportions of some of them are kinda gross.

    Go for something easily legible and very balanced.

    Your tag will then will become like Macaroni and Steez.
