  • What got you ADDICTED to graff?

    ONCE when i was younger taken the bus bored lookin out the window. Some older boy got on the bus with a black book with all this weird writing on it. He sat by me and I asked what it is... He smiled and showed me. I was amazed by his talent. So unique and detailed with color.... I wanted to do it... So I practiced and practiced until I got good at it. Then I released myself to the world to prove I'm as god as any boy and sometimes better... I wanted to be a legend(but im not lol). So that how i got started....



    What got you started and addicted to the graff scene? What got you started?

                  Same story again, im writing for two years now, close to three years, and the last year im pretty active. I stay writing since i just like the feeling i guess...

                  You feel somehow pretty artistic, and when ur paint hits the wall man xD
                  Best thing about graffiti is when u did ur fill and background, and u start ur outline man. Wow, fuckign brilliant how u can turn an ugly collection of colors and paint into something that gets noticed =]
                  Thats just it, i dont care bout adrenaline, im usually pretty chilled when i paint (or stoned xD) but its just, i like the way how paint covers the wall or window or ne thing really. Thats whats so nice about it.

                  I dont no, u gotta feel the same to understand me =]

                    I know what you mean.
                    But its fucking hard to get rid of that addiction... And i still didn't, it keeps on going on paper.
                    I really need to stop writing shit on walls and trains because of the trouble i had.
                    i just don't like "doing time".

                        a true writers addiction never stops, its in their mindset to graff, i luv graff, its not just a hobbie to me its a lifestyle, at the rate im going i wont stop until the arthritus<however u spell it) in my hand causes it to fall off... being on the ten freeway heading toward a city with a sick graff scene(l.a.) and meeting someone that knew how to write before me (who is now one of my cloesest friends) is what got me started, and now its probably one of the biggest parts of my life... and i couldnt be more proud of it...

                          the improvment and witnessing the progrssion you make towards being almost as good as the writers you admire, its a bliss feeling, and shin i agree, the feeling of the paint hitting the wall is just... yea.
