    Is the inter net the down fall to graffiti as we know it? With ny stores developing toy- action figure type taggers and all the access to all the best ideas, is this the beginning of the end? Is it not a tool only?

    two things i dont like:

    someone paints once every 6 months puts it on the net and has instant fame

    people flick the SAME SHIT over and over- im sick of seeing Worms Onorok everytime i log on theyre good AND up a lot but it seems like no one will post a flick unless its a very well known writer

    wtf? what is theis thread even about? Graffiti action figures being sold at Toys R Us? what?
    The internet is doing nothing but helping writers...especially those that are into commercial art, it' s getting their shit out there to new audiences who wouldn't normally see it and it's good advertising. Plus its keeping the culture alive because cats can ask other ppl from around the world about their experiences and for advice , thus preventing many from repeating the same mitsakes of the past in addition it's kinda building up a fraternity/sorority between writers so they don't even have to MEET each other in the real world lol

    the drawbacks- kids in the boondocks now have access to styles that are particular to certain regions, thus watering down that particular style.
    Without going to that particular environment and experiencing it firsthand.
    The positives- I can talk a gang of shit for the fuck of it when I am bored at work.

    There are going to be people in all walks of life that imitate everything they see...from fashion to style! The net is just an evolution of info...
    It has the same effect as a magazine and tv commercials....People bite whatever they likeand want to imitate..fuk it!
    Graf will alwayz live...like CoCkArOaChEs..u cant stop it!

    i agree with the above, and want to add the fact that we all know when someone's got true style. if you bite, it's obvious. if you got your own style thats fresh, that's obvious too. people know who's biten, and people know who's not. coackaroaches for life
