    You must share a house with dys$kyse then. How old are you? What do you want out of the forum?

    Follow up question: how old are you?

    You know who you are... I see you have chosen to try and be restrained in your new name since the last few times resulted in disaster for you. I am genuinely curious. What do you want from the forums? Is it validation? A sense of belonging? Acceptance?

    I could do a regular over the internet exchange if you want. PEIK is fine, You rep any crews? It would most def be full color. I write SATIRE of SEVS/DFS. My apologies if I didn't get it. Are you saying no in-the-mail big exchanges due to the marker situation? That won't change in three months? It doesn't resemble them too much. It's hard to flex any particular style without someone saying there is somebody else rocking it. There is most def enough difference to tell there is no biting going on.

    The below is PASER but they both compliment each other. And again, I am not even remotely saying you are biting at all. I just see you using some of that the way they do to make your pieces more 3D (and that's not a crit either). MACK: Your pieces are solid but I really love your handstyles. That's one of my weakest things and I've gotten better but still...

    Oh man! That would be awesome but I do exchanges pretty differently from some. I do in mail paper exchanges with stickers and it is usually five or six pieces (maybe four half pages and postals and one full page production, all sticker). I mention that partly cuz I see you do a lot of digital work. These exchanges take a long time (three months sometimes) because I sprinkle them in with other work I do but I always always always come through. So if that interests you, let me know. What name are you using most? (I ask THAT because you are using so many names in your digital pieces). Your digi work gets very 3D letter. Reminds me a lot of Timber (not saying it's a bite cuz it isn't). You should do some of that on top of your work. I totally see it going there and being dope as fuck.

    It is fascinating! Are these supposed to be that, uh, "whispy" is the only word I can think of. The handstyles are crisp and bold but the letters are like vapor trails.
  9. Hi Shuvel! Glad you could make it! Sit a spell! Let's talk. I think we got off on the wrong foot.


    You see, I was just like you, many years ago. And I get it. And a person can be a talented and skilled artist with a ton of potential and still have some substandard work, especially if they enter a niche art-form (like graffiti, for instance!).


    And it's tough because you want it so bad. You want to everyone to tell you how great your shit is. Maybe even in the same way you hear it in real life from the people around you. Because people who don't make art are usually glowing in praise if you show the slightest competency. So it's tough to get that praise all the time and suddenly get the exact opposite when you venture outside that circle. And you want it now. That elusive cred that everyone else seems to be getting outside that circle of non-artists.


    Let me ask you a question. What do you want? Do you want hollow praise with people telling you that it's good no matter what?


    Or do you want people telling you that the fruits of your labor are good because they actually ARE good?


    Because right now, your stuff isn't good. Sorry. i know that hurts to hear. Not trying to make you feel bad. I really am not. But your stuff is not that good. And I understand. Because I struggle myself. Lots of times, I don't feel like much of what I make is good. The few times I get artists saying it is good, I feel special and like I truly accomplished something. That's a feeling you probably have not gotten yet. At least not genuinely, if you are honest. And I can assure you, it is worth it.


    But it took years of me being terrible to get there.


    So, for real, don't stop drawing. Don't stop creating. Don't stop trying. I mean that. Keep going. But have a modicum of self-awareness. A touch of humility. And a realization that no matter how good you are, you could be better and there are people who are better than you (and I mean that about myself... there are TONS of cats better than me... TONS). Because that attitude, over time, will make you better. It really will.


    Anything else is not going to make you better. It will hold you back. You will spend all your days angry and wondering why everyone hates you. And you will deserve it. Leave that shit behind.


    Better yourself.


    No hate here. Have a nice day.


    PS: This same thing I have just said... It will be copied and pasted again for the next person who comes along acting just like you. Because that's a thing. There is an endless stream of people just like you swinging their dicks around and talking shit because they just could not check themselves and their egos. I was once that guy, only nobody said it to me. I had to figure it out on my own.

    You are right. Saying it is trash is disrespectful to actual trash. Run away, little toy. This will not end well for you. I suggest you stay in the toy section and mind your place or delete your account. You can criticize my own stuff all you want. I am certainly not the best person up in this thread by a long shot. I can take it. Mark all my posts trash. I suspect I will be fine. Another toy just like you will show up in no time.
