    a back yard wall will help you a lot. when you are beginning use cheap paint, and stock tips. dont worry about bombing until your shit looks good.

    Yeah either a backyard wall, or even a sheet of plywood if there isn't a backyard wall available. Just paint the sheet of wood, then go over it, and go over it until you get somewhat good. And yeah don't go spending all your money on expensive paint. Wallmart has some cans for 99 cents.

    how about you learn on the street, and go through the year or two of getting dissed until you get better and earn the respect of writers in your hood and keep on writing and writing and writing until you become a well known writer?

    Have a look round all the topics here in the Yard before posting.

    However the best advice is to try things yourself; trial and error is how graf evolved and it is still the best way to find things out. Coming to a website and getting all your info "off the shelf" will not help you.
