    what are the best words being writen? what does that word do to the viewer when they read it? what does it do to you when you read it?

    I put my name on all my pieces, but I tend to write different words depending on what's going on, or what I'm feeling at the time.

    My crew (POV) and I put up our first shared piece tonight, it was a big POV on a freight car. I've been known to write "zzz" when it's really late, I wanna do some "GET UP" pieces, to try and get people moving, etc, etc.

    I guess my deal is, I wanna express myself and motivate people, not just write my name a lot.

    I write "lens" on account of the fact that I take so many pictures all the time. If you've ever seen your piece in a magazine, chances are I was the one who took the photo. CHeers.
