    What's up everyone. I have been lurking on this board for a little bit, but have not made a formal introduction. My name is Russell Jones, I'm not a writer, but have many friends that are. I am a hip hop dj and got involved with some writers that way.

    I am also working on a master's degree in art history at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, and I am an art teacher at Owens Community College right here in Toledo, Ohio. I try to get my students hip to graff, and I include the link to this site on the course sites for my classes.

    Right now, I am interviewing writers, especially those from here in the midwest. I am mostly asking what writers think about permission walls, art galleries and bombing. If anyone on this board would like to be involved in this project it would be a great help to me and it would be a chance to vent your views, increase understanding and possibly even promote yourself. In the future, this thesis wil hopefully be turned into a book about writing in the Midwest.

    So if you would like to be interviewed, please PM me and let me know. I don't think I have to say this, but do not use your real name with any correspondence with me. I have strict rules for security that are mandated by my University, so I have to keep everyone protected from any harm. Again, any help that any of you could give me towards finishing this project would be greatly appreciated. You would be a part of something that I think could be really great.

    Also, if anyone has any suggestions on how I could get more participants, let me know. Much respect,

    Russell Jones

    I'm not, but my real name is Russell Jones. If you would like, you can go here https://www.owens.edu/cgi-bin/class.pl and look up "art" for the subject and "101" for the course and you will get classes with my name. I also have a myspace site, http://www.myspace.com/djrusselljones if you want to find out more about me.


    It is of course up to you if you wish to take the risk, to protect your identity. All information that you send me will be securely destroyed within 6 months.


    I have interviewed members of the RA crew here in Toledo, if that helps to establish my trustworthiness.

    By the way, thanks to the board members who have already participated. More is better though!

    know what pisses me off? people who write about graf and study it always write about the scene and the illegallity of it.

    Why don't you for once just focus on the art form itself? That I would be interested in reading about. I could care less whether its a felony in Boston or people in Toledo like rap music or taht someone in Orlando does "it" as a protest against yada yada yada...

    Because its usually the ones that dont understand the artform, that want to write papers about it...and the ones that DO participate/understand graffiti could give a shit about writing papers about it.
