Call me a sell out, question my love, do as you please but honestly I do not understand what the problem of being sponsored is. If I want to sell MY art to some company willing to pay me money for my blood, sweat, and tears then by all means I have the right to do so whether you and this "culture" like it or not. Whether some 13 year-old likes it enough to pick it up is not my problem. How are you any different from kids when you started graffiti? Where'd you pick it up? I'm sure the older heads thought you were just some punk-kid in it for the lulz. Eventually a majority of those kids will see graffiti on the streets and on forums such as Bombing Science and 12ozProphet. Do the creators of Bombing Science and/or 12ozProphet get shit for being sell-outs? They're essentially marketing graffiti but don't you all love BS or 12oz? Don't you use it frequently? Everyone has a right to do graffiti and where they picked it up shouldn't be the concern. In essence, all of you claiming that selling your artwork is selling-out are calling every artist in history a sell-out. From Michelangelo to Vincent Van Gogh to Salvador Dali and so on. If you love something, you want it to flourish and thrive not die-out. In the end, all of the kid who love graff will stay and all of the kids who wanted to be hood will eventually leave. It's basically all part of growing up.
