To me Seattle, and the Northwest in general is the opposite of what your saying here. There is just as much graff as the average city, but the buff works quicker here than in most areas, and the quality of graff is way below par (generally speaking). For instance, you look at freeway spots or rooftops anywhere else, and people are doing 5 or 6 color peices; here people are doing 2 color, mostly black and white simples, straightletters and throwups. You rarely see multicolor freeway hits.
and that makes our graff below par? i rock 2 colors and some inks
