    it looks appealing to us more than to people who are not into it understanably.. attention in some way or another is a motive for every writer just like every athlete or singer it is a PART of the motive.. from certain people.. it looks phat.. rebelious attraction to it etc..

    I do it for a rush, the fame, the awe i get from toys and the respect i get from people that are wayyyyy better than me.

    I dunno, I do it because it's a way to get away from all the sanctioned activities reserved for fun where i live. I don't wanna party with Greek fraternity assholes. I don't wanna drink at a sports bar while i get jostled by meathead dickwads cheering on their sports team. I don't wanna strut at some meat market of a club.

    I want to be free and out there painting and being away from a social scene that has little or no need for a person like me. it makes me happy. it makes me feel good. It's a breath of fresh air being able to participate in something not too many people are into. It's an outlet of adventure. it's a chance to bleed off stress and bullshit.

    nothin makes me smile like driving by a nice clean wall one day, then driving by the enxt day and seeing a good layer of paint or ink upon it. i like exploring weird tunnels and bridges and highways and railroad tracks and finding writing and markings of man in the most obscure and unlikely places. but really to me it's all about reaction. i like hearin people say "hey have you ever seen that such and such face painted under the bridge on such street" or whatever, whether it's my own work or not. i could care less for fame to my real self, but ilike the thought that some character i manifestd is gettin some attention.
