    I hate Blade's stuff. I recognize the ridiculous amount of work he put in and his immense influence on graf... but god that guy's stuff is ugly. Amazingly it's even uglier now.

    yeah but aint ugly so damn pretty sometimes? I remember benching at Atlantic ave. when every other car on the 2s and 5s had a big funky nasty Blade on it and getting a certain rush...maybe it just doesn't translate in to photos, but man oh man! Loverly. Its sorta like listening to SHAM69 or the Ramones, or M.O.P. for that matter. Sure, James Taylor's songs are prettier, maybe technically superior too, but they just dont seem to get me amped .

    Blade? Ugly...are you on crack? no but seriously. i hear comments like this often from younger writers. understand this. when you look at graffiti from the 1970's you are witnessing creation. there were no mags, books or websites to reference. no custon caps to make piecing 100x easier. no legal walls to practice on over and over again until you did something decent enough to take to the lines(or any illegal medium for that matter). these motherfuckers were creating style and techniques from scratch. a lot of the same shit you/we are doing today, they set the standard on. so before you jump up and call a legend like blade 'ugly', because his shit is not overcluttered with arrows and straight lines, or because its readable, you might wanna get a better understanding on style origins and its place throughout writing history.

    BLADE WAS DEFINATLY A MAJOR PLAYR IN THE WHOLE EVOLUTION OF THIS GRAFF GAME...JUST BECAUSE ITS NOT WILD STYLE OR CRAZY COMPLEX DOESNT MEAN IT DOESNT HAVE FLAVOR, RESPECT THE OLD TIMERS.. THEY MADE THIS SHIT HAPPEN FOR US TODAY....
