    To be quite honest, I think that my biggest influences towards graffiti are Old "KREWS BA" stuff, and some of the TITS crew styles. I like skinny letters that go hella wildstyle..

    I can dig. Of course my own crew inspires me a lot, AGE! Dekoy, TARS! ESIS. Silo letter structures are inspiring in a way too actually. Very unique in my eyes.

    a lot of lyrics
    today's soundtrack: Fikus

    Fikus dreamed a dream for me
    it cost me nothing it was free
    he dreamed of walking in the sand
    of blossoms forming in his hand...

    Paniolo country (Hawaiian cowboys)
    for the Mucha lovers
    possibly my favorite
    Norman Rockwell and how he made the mundane events become extraordinary

    the concept of flight
    saturday mornings
    the sky
    blueberry pie

    ...none of this was charged to me
    for as I said it was free...

    Retna's a cool ass mu'fucka, I met him when he did a opening at the ZeroOne shop (hey, if you're on this board somewhere, what the deal with the backwards sweater????) and he's seriously on some next shit. Not exactly a person that inspires me, but someone I seriously give mad respect to. (And I don't respect a lot of people...)

    Influences? Kinsey, my guy AukWords (I know you're on this board somewhere, email me nigga!), Mear (his compositions and paint technique are fuckin sick, he's the king of making shit look better in picture), Joker IHU (just 'cause), Robert Aspire (not sure on the spelling, he did a pornographic comic series for Penthouse- his female characters are stupendous), Stan Lee, old Mcfarlane, Rob Liefield (Xforce was off the hinge, no lie), whoever does the cabinet work for the newer StreetFighter games (the anime styled stuff, that artist is mad talented, he has also done covers to a few RPG games...)

    I don't really have too many "graff" inspirations, 'cause I'm finally understanding what makes letters good, so I'm really into trying to make my own little niche... but I still gotta admit, LA graff is what makes the 3rd leg stand...

    (Oh yeah, PLEASE give Kofie UTI more props!!! His characters are fucking sick, top notch can control... DOSE GREEN DOSE GREEN DOSE GREEN DOSE GREEN DOSE GREEN...hahaha)
