    i just figured this would be a good thread for people who wanted to persue there graff or art as a career. People could post like where they went what they did when they got out. Im in highskool still and i just wanted to get an idea of where people went and what they did with themselfs and good art skools to meet other writers from all over tha place

    Seeling out is what it's all about.

    Repeat that 3 times and you got yourself a chorus.

    Also, I suggest paying more attention in english. This isn't a diss, (I have found I need to start making this clear) just a suggestion you should definately look into.

    If you're thinking about this you're not good enough and will never be good enough to make reasonable amounts of money from it.

    no kidding. im not sure how you could turn a moderatly expensive hobby into a profitable career. You can easily spend 25 35 dollars on a large burner Figure 6-9 cans at 2.50-4.00 a pop. plus all the 3 -5 can bombs you do on the side. Every time im leaving the paint spot I feel like I done got hustled. Depending on how UP you aspire to get that starts adding up quick. I would paint more if I had more money and time. Montana isnt exactly knocking at my door offering up free cans. i be banging out the cheap shit like its going out of style.
    Let me point you in a better dirrection------Graphic Design. you will still be poor but not starving on the streets.
    If you are really artistic you might make some money but expect to work like a dog. Its also demoralizing. People will try to cheat you as often as possible. Paying less than your service and art is worth. I have a friend that is trying to make it like this and I really feel for the guy sometimes. He is an amazing artist and he barely gets by

    ^If you feel hustled then you might want to re-consider what you're doing.

    I pay about 1 dollar for any can of paint I buy.
