    OK, im from Surrey, and where I live, there aint nowhere nearby to improve can skills. To be honest, I have very little can skills as there aint anywhere I can practice. I've done a few good sketches and one large one on me wall in my room (two A1 pieces of paper, landscape, side by side). The problem is that i cant find anywhere that i can get to that is gonna be quiet enough for long enough, cos I kinda got a thing for wildstyle, and there's only one person who is really into graf enough to come wit me n look out / vice versa. If anyone knows of anywhere that i can practice n get some downtime wit a can, please tell me. Oh the other slight problem is the fact that I only got one other person wit me, so it needs to be a DEAD QUIET place, it dont matter if no one sees it, cos first pieces will be crap probably.

    im not from the UK, but i know if u have any train tracks or abandoned buildings around, those places are always good...i live in philadelphia, and when i was a toy (i think i still am, not sure), i practiced in an abandoned mental hospital called byberry, and it was good cuz other writers would practice there and i could meet graffiti artists n sstart crews and such...but u should just find an abandoned building/buildings somewhere around u and usually, no1 will bug u there, unless they have security/cops :)

    the best places to go are, washes, undergruond tunnels, train yards, highway underpasses.... go places only taggers go...theres a reason they say graffiti is "underground" cause thats where you can find it look around and be creative dont be afriad to make your own yards if you find a wash somewhere or something or somewhere theres a wall that many people dont go to go there... or go to one at night theres less risk of being busted....

    your peices are way to complicated why are you even trying wild styles if you know you are toy. do simple straight letters and preactice your bombs and handstlyes.. amd throw those in the trash.

    ...dont ever call yourself a toy again, ur really good man...i suggest getting a good bubble type style where you just write it, and hit stuff with that first, and as you get more experienced with bombing, then start doing your wild styles...your work on paper is amazing for a starter :D
