    Discussion started by dephect - Jun 29, 2002

    You see graff mags from around the world and theres only a handful which are half decent, but if u ever had thought that you could do something better than whats infront of eyes.
    If you ever had a genuine urge to make one, and had enough pix, writers to interview and stories, how would you go about it?

    i'd get David Mack, Jim Mahfood,Shepherd Fairey,Dalek,Kaws and especially Evan Hecox to do the layout and graphic design. Shepherd and Upski would do writing.
    It would be a totally multimedia graf zine. Crayons, Watercolors,Inks,Markers,Scanner,Photoshop,Quark.
    Nuff said.
    and every issue would include a flipbook or sticker or stencil or some other goody

    Id keep it with alotta flicks, less words and advertisements, and definately not a "fashion" section. Id include some interviews and stories, but it would mainly be pieces on every page. I like the idea of including stickers or sum type of extra goodie, id include that also.

    :idea:

    i'd have alot of pages 100+, flick sections would be divided by pieces, throwups, simples, handstyles, and rollers, uh... there would be 3 or 4 interviews somewhere in there, action flicks included... reader submission stories/editorial section, and a few ads in the back with a lil comic... and it would be bi-monthly. prolly too much work for a monthly, but if i had the right staff i'd make it monthly. but i wouldnt have a mag to begin with but thats the whole point of the question, whatever.

    oh yeah...

    for all this bullshit they are putting in graff mags nowadays... half naked chicks, fashion, bullshit, etc. etc. When I look at a graff mag that is all I want to see, graff. Fuck all the bullshit, if you want to see chicks pick up a Playboy. Nothing is wacker than making graff look like some trendy shit... ehhem *while you were sleeping*
