    What Are Your Plans For the Future?

    Discussion started by Gunm - Jun 3, 2005

    I was wondering what some of you intended to do with your graffiti as the years go on. Remember, we're not getting younger.

    Are some of you content to just bomb and piece as a hobby? Is it just a side pursuit while you work on serious career?

    Do some of you see graffiti as a way of moving up in the world as your style gets better and better? Maybe establish a clothing company? Art openings? Canvases? KAWS/DALEK/NECKFACE/TWIST status?

    Do you see yourself ever outgrowing graffiti?

    Let's face it, graffiti has the potential to be a real crash and burn lifestyle. the choices you make today determine whether you are a superstar :king: ,burnout :burn: or a middle class american :clown2: with a family who fondly remembers the days of killing buses and walls while you make dinner for the wife and kids.

    Where is your graffiti taking you?

    I don't think you can ever 'outgrow' graffiti,
    its either part or all of your lifestyle,
    how much of your time it takes up
    depends on your attitude towards it.

    I like to picture myself, at about
    75 years of age dragg'n my
    brittle bag a bones up of the
    throne in some public rest room
    somewere.......

    ....take the pen from pocket
    from which I had early completed
    my daily crossword with, &
    go over the new school toys
    on the back of the door,
    with some shaaaakkkky styles!

    When it comes to art I do shit when I want to. I would never try to make
    any part of the "creative" me into a career... turning something I love
    into a career feels like killing it to me.

    Graffiti will always be part of my life. I'm not saying I will continue going
    out every night but I will always think like a grafftagbomber.


    That said, I see no stopping in my future.. so I don't know.





    And this is random, I've just been thinking about it lately --


    But I am quite the hipocrite. I am willing to switch barcode labels on
    paint cans to get a lower price, but if I see a kid stealing candy from
    like.. a circle k or 7-11 or whatever, I feel like beating the shit out of
    him. And I don't really understand why either. I did that shit when I was
    younger.. what's the problem I have with it?


    Possibly it's the complete obvious way they do it. I don't know. I hope I
    wasn't that obvious.


    I hate kids.

    switching barcodes isnt the same as stealing. your still paying something, but on your terms..

    stealing is the companies fault for MAKING you want it so bad

    if the company doesnt want you to steal, then they should only advertise to people who can afford it....

    but i say beat up little kids but let em keep their candy
