    this flick was taken from The Graveyard Shift. it's by Veks KYT. granted the piece looks like shit, it's almost obvious that the dude went nuts painting it. drunk, yes, but it must have been fun as hell. look at all the little retarded swerves and kicks...yes! then instead of writing "drunken" in a normal way he decided to put the N in its own panel...fucking brilliant! veks is showing you guys how to paint without any of you actually picking up on it. let loose and have fun! if you're gonna be up tight about everything pack your bags and head off to the legal wall! thank you, veks. another lesson learned.
    see you toys, later!

    I agree. getting wasted and going painted is a good idea. On the downside fi I have to run ill have a gut full of alcohol to slow me down and, If caught an underage drinking fine on top of that. Smart remarks aside, the drunken aesthetics of it are "fucking brilliant".
    This IS what graffiti is all about.

    god you guys are anal. you didn't catch my drift. graffiti is about having fun.

    not about being cool. not about being popular. not about being super tech fancy schmancy pretty happy blah blah shit..it's about going out and doing stupid shit and laughing about it all in retrospect. if you don't live by that policy with regards to graffiti maybe you ought to check yourself and ask if you're a little too uptight.

    have any of you read "the art of getting over"? did you not pick up on what espo was saying?

    Who says that theres one way to have fun with graffiti and everything else is like a chore? If you want to go out and do crazy stocked tip shit in a drunken rage and laugh about it thats really cool, but what if others take great pleasure in working at a legal wall or really chill spot for hours? Theres merit in that too my friend. Graffiti is what you make of it, the tools to create really great work are at our hands and people can choose to work with that too. I dig a lot of sifferent styles, I'm into kids who can do shit like Veks or Eatfuk or a lot of Midwestern kids or whoever, but there are different schools of graffiti and they need to coexist. Graffiti is what you make of it and how it makes you, the tech artist or the kamakazi stocked tipped bomber feel. To each his own, please don't judge...
