    Graffiti

    Just wondering if any of you here has tried that? seems cool enough.
    btw i'm not talking necessary with spray-paint, there are amazing works done by airbrushes!

    Corel

    I don't do it. When I see chicken-scratch on walls that you can't even read, what's the point? I'd like to see some examples of what people would consider to be good.

    As far as street work goes, Miso is someone I look up to.

    I'm cold as cold as cold can be.

    it communicates before it is read. the words are subtext to the expression.

    There's too much to link to individually, and no one single site... but do an image search on "Banksy". His work is subversive and funny... he uses a lot of cutout templates and spraypaint for it.

    I take it back... there's a whole bunch of his work HERE.

    Banksy and Miso both look awesome. I've wanted to try it, for awhile. But with it being illegal 'n all, I don't really have the nuggets to try it. :/

    I think that's a fun aspect, not getting caught, getting accross a message. Though I would like to see more political messages relevant to the bullshit that goes on today, rather than just art. Stuff that alot of common society is blind to or maybe just ignores.

    I like stuff like this. Looks cool, the crazy colors and designs. I'm not so much into the Urban Outfitters looking stuff.

    All graffiti guy's worth mentioning keep sketchbooks filled with ideas, so I don't think it has to be up on a wall or done with spray paint or airbrush to be considered graffiti.
