    Small towns.....

    Discussion started by Gyro_One - May 29, 2002

    Hey im a writer from a small town, basically the only graff this town sees is what my friend or me put up, do you think its worth it to write in a town like this or would you bomb up in a place where theres a graff scene?

    i as well wrote in a small town....i don't think it really matters, unless your completely after fame, then you better go to a larger city...
    i'd have to say its much easier to get caught in a small town.
    depends on your preference...up to you

    Don't go to a city until 18? Why?
    I'd say stay off the freights until you have something to show.

    find a practice spot
    (like under a bridge or some far away lot)
    and then build your skill.

    dont get up in high heat in a small town or you'll get caught quick.
    Then hit trains.

    Yeah theres no yards here really, the freights stop out in a field occasionally but my friend is always like gettin me to hit up wicked risky places and shit, hes gotten caught before and all they did was make him clean it and it looks like shit now, looks the same with shitty white stuff on it, cops are fuckin gay tho.

    Don't expect fame unless your willing to get out of your sleepy little town.

    Yeah thats true that you wont get much fame, but you could start a revolution in your town you know, bring graff to that town, inspire kids to bomb, they see your shit and then they want to start piecing. That is something good that could come out of it, it could also attract writers from the cities when they drive thru..

    pretty serious here
    there was an article in the paper about the dramatic increase in graffiti in our town in the past couple years...i got a smile on my face when i read that.

    I live in a small Crap hole, Thomasville, NC. We just find places around here that no one goes, practice our new styles and then move on to the bigger cities. Graffing in a small city is really sketchy, so if you don't want to get caught, stick to small train yards.

    i myself am a victim of a small town, pop. 33,181 and that's the 3rd most populated town in the state so that says a lot about the area i'm in. i know there are a lot of cats out there that have it worse than me but still. if i had to guess i'd say there are about ten writers in my town. but i mean it's alright cause there are plenty of spots and you can go all city in the nieghboring towns with one tag. I do think that it's sketchy to get up cause if the cops see some kid in a hoodie and a backpack walkin downtown late at night they're gonna hassle you and shit cause nobody is out. yet also nobody really knows a thing about graff so they don't notice it and don't care that much.

    It depends what you got into writing for. If you want to get good and create dope pieces all you need is you, a hole heap of self motivation, and a few chill spots where you can do your thing. If you want to have fun bombing and getting fame - save it until you've moved to a big city.
