    I have been seeing alot of his work over the past year. He has managed to achive some good sucess but i am not sure what to make of it though. He went from graff artist to now he's got his work with various companies. Is it a good thing or a bad thing. I think i just maybe jealous or some shit.

    Yeah, you're jealous.

    edit*
    I don't know the man behind the space monkeys but has Dalek ever claimed to be an actual writer? I can see how the masses hate dude for making money off, I don't know, a culture where most people risk their lives (well, financially anyway-> fines, jail time, etc.) for recognition. And it would be an ideal world if people actually put in some heavy duty work before claiming "ultra-keep's it real" status. But has Dalek ever claimed that position? If he did, then that's a bit fucked up. Oh well. Nevertheless, dude makes money.

    I guess Dalek is like the opposite of Neckface. Plus, there's a lot of people who use graffiti as uh, what's the word that people are abusing, oh, "inspiration". There's worse out there.


    I had a Dalek shirt 4 years ago.

    DALEK MAY CLAIM TO HAVE SOME GRAFFITI ASPECT BUT THINK OF ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE GOT RICH OFF OF ONE CHARACTER WHETHER OR NOT IT HAD SHIT TO DO WITH GRAFFITI

    HE SHOULD TEAM UP WITH THAT DUDE THAT MAKES THOSE MONKEY SHIRTS THAT SIXTH GRADE GIRLS WEAR

    i could never hate on someone for making money.

    As a real estate mogul I wouldn't hate on D Trump for using his knowledge about real estate to make money and call him a sell out.

    Inventors Dont hate on Mr. A Bell for the Telephone.

    It's all about a PRODUCT. If you could invent a Device that everyone in the world wanted to buy from you would you sell it?

    Well, DALEK invented a space monkey that some people want to buy.

    I agree with you and every one else its just my preconcieved notion was that he had origins going back to graff i didnt mean to call him a writer thats just how i catagroized him as an artist. i am not hating on him its just after having had a skateboard since i was 5 and now being 23 and then flipping through a magazine and seeing his work and then seeing the shoe he has kind of made me wonder what the fuck i have alot of work that should be out there but its not and made me jealous thats why i posted it like that. merely venting thats all i guess.

    i've definitely seen him do letters..and seen many of his pieces in person and in mags like scribble. Does no one else remember this? It was just the 90's

    I think alot of people concentrate more on the now instead of then. Were all so caught up in whats out on the markets now that we dont stop to remince on where individuals have come from. For example you see articles about DALEK and you see the here and now. I have an article on him and it mentions little to do with his past and more of where hes going and what hes doing. thats just waht i think. i know i have done that with a few artists.
