    ok...ill play nice

    -your goin to hear alot of bullshit.
    -Force your-self to "unlearn" whatever you think you know
    -start off incredibly simple, study letter form, how letters are constructed and what not. Its the most repetetive piece of advice you will hear, its also one of the most important...so...learn your
    LETTER STRUCTURE think of the font Times new roman, letters are made of bars...once you understand how they are built youll see how you can manipulate them.

    -and youll probably hear this too, I wouldnt write Silo.

    2 cents...take it or leave it.

    def. need your letter structure and letter spacing. I feel like your trying to squeeze your letters into the page rather than spacing them out.

    SILO #1.

    ^Never do that ever again. I would drop some knowledge (tips) but I'll leave that to the more experienced writers. Hopefully, they will peep this thread and help you out. But honestly, you should try to explore on your own. Writing (graffiti) takes time. No one gets dope overnight. If you don't have patience (months, years) then... then... [insert something that sounds incredibly smart here]. But let me ask you this: Why did you pick up writing? Influences?
