    1. graff is an abreviated noun, it is short for graffiti. if you add a suffix to an abreviated noun (ex. graff + ing) it does not make a verb.

    2. and you cant add the suffix [er] to graff in order to change the context of the noun in question because (remembering from lesson one) graff is short for graffiti, so when you say "graffer", what you are really saying is graffitier which would sound almost as busted as "graffer".

    basicly only toys make up words like "graffing" and "graffer" so if you want to know what i wouldnt do, i wouldnt dabble in suffixes when talking graff.
    seriously, its a step in the right direction.

    another good idea is DONT BITE. there is an easy way and a hard way. if you take the hard way and do things for yourself, it will pay off acouple years from now. your skills will be sharper , your understanding will be greater, and you'll get more respect.

    1) Don't ask people on the internet what you should be doing in your personal development of an artistic talent. They can't tell you. Anything else you'll figure out on your own really fast if you're serious.

    2) I am a hardcore wildstyle graff tagger.

    Honestly the only words of advice you really need to know is..


    When you feel you got the basics down pretty well then come back in here and post your up to date work and then ask for advice or whatever you feel needed.....Good luck in that venture....

    ...don't listen to them...use the word graff and any possible deviation from that word as often as possible in your day to day vernacular...

    ...also buy and wear as many graffin related clothing items as you possibly can...

    paint BIG!!! sooooo many toys make these small ass "throw-ups" in all kind of ugly cheap paint with stock caps. also, practice somewhere secluded and take to the streets when you get it down, dont let your ignorence show.
