    alrite seriously here.....i got a big ass dilemma

    i havent gone bombing for 1 month even since i got caught.....and i really wanna go bombing again.....but theres a little complication....its hard to explain, so i will try and explain best to my ability...


    its my mom, i really dont want to disspoint her again, ever since i got caught she has put her trust back in me, shes let me do legal shit, shes got faith in me that i would stop bombing. if i decide to go bombing, and get caught......this is seriously going to fuckin kill my mom, i cannot stress how bad it felt watching my mom slump down the ground sobbing un controllably one month ago....and i really want to go crush shit again, but my trust and relationship with my own fuckin mother is at stake....my moms repution withing the family is also going to drop. she has managed to convince my dad (whom i hate and would still write if i lived with him) that i am straight, and if im caught this will make her look like a total idiot......im so fuckin confused.....which is more important...my relationship with my mom or graff.....im fuckin feening for graff....but i dont wanna lose one of the few close people to me....fuck...im such a fuckin loser, help me out alll you lucky people

    Well you have some choices you obviously probally know
    1) Pull a GKAE and try not to get caught
    2) Practice writing a lot, but wait till you can get away from your parents (18) Then go beserk and all city without sweating about them (do this if you have patience and can stand doing legals and sketching for a long ass time, Hell if you work a lot you might discover something totally new)
    3)Quit writing:(
    4) Run away and make your parents realize you can do want you want if you can handle the consequences....

    Thats all I can think of I live with my mom and she always crys when she knows i'm going out...or get caught...You just have to realise Theirs a lot more worse things that could happen to you in life other than writing....

    MAN..... you know the answer... the only REAL answer is to not bomb until you are out of the house. Here's my deal, me and 2 of my friends are married with kids. I have been painting almost 10 years and I will always paint. But with a family and a wife that doesn't want to have to bail out her husband I have had to be VERY careful about what I do. I paint a ton of legals and canvases but ups are in my blood. I spend HOURS mapping and figuring out the safest spots as not to get caught. I don't get the CRAZY ups anymore cause I have grown past getting props. I paint a lot of water towers and freights now. I hit a lot of electrical boxes (big ones) and sometimes I get a few buildings (abandoned).

    anyway hope I helped

    CAPS.......... what is legal?

    i had the same situation. painting was too tempting. i was told that these are the funest times of my life and when im 18 theres lots of time to get your life back on track.

    i hate to disapoint my parents but painting is a good feeling and posibly the only thing that makes me happy at the moment and if your shit at school, dont have a girl friend and dont have any other hobbies and your asked to quit graff, what you going to say?

    which is going to make you happier?

    well as for the 18 year old stuff, if you arent already, it doesnt matter, because you will always be your mothers son. youll eventually forget about graffiti, its really not that big of a deal once you get out of it, kind of like telivision. just think of your options:

    earn the respect of your own mother by simply choosing to drop a hobby of yours. or....

    try your very hardest to impress a small amount of a relatively small subculture, which is made up of mainly alcoholic, depressed, immature, unemployed people, and still end up coming up short because the majority of them will be not only unimpressed but violently opposed to you.

    fuck why on earth do i continue to look at photographs and read the opinions of the aforementioned people? im an ass.

    please dont listen to this dumb ass. he started his post by saying, "check it dawgz" .

    my mom means more to me than graff ever will. all the respect and props from every writer in the world couldnt compare to her love. so if i were in your shoes, then i would kick graff back down a couple of notches. and if your fams got money issues, you do not want to get caught. wait till youve moved out of the house and your older and wiser to get back into things. sketching and legals wont hurt in the meantime. theres a lot more in the world than rusto and krylon though.
