graffiti writing -vs- your life

Recommended Posts

Guest MR BOJANGLES

sometimes i feel like if i try to actually go to work and make something of myself the writers in my city look down on me cuz i aint out paintin like i used to...then when i try to just work enough to survive, and paint on a consistent basis, i cant live in the "real world" due to money, etc. (i.e. girls, relationships, eating real meals not ramen). how do you all deal with this? living with my parents is not an option for me, im 25 and theyre not around...any advice?

Im 21 and in a similar position as you,I dont paint as much as i would like mainly cause the stakes are higher now ,but fuck why are you concerned what the other writers think of what you do.I guess the real question you should ask yourself is what is more important to you .Graff or other shit.

yeah, I feel you too.A female got mad cuzz I said "I want to paint" when she asked me what I felt was more important, her or hitting up.A job will feed you, a house or apt will shelter you, and painting will make you happy. I guess. Take care of your priorities before you paint, then go blast the walls! I can go deeper, but I wont.

Are you in it for the fame or because you love to paint? It seems to me that if you just love to paint, then you shouldn't be worried about the other heads in your city. Maybe it's time for you to evolve. Maybe you don't paint as much, but when you do you make it good. There's a common training philosophy (in sports) that says you go for a while and things are fine. you take a break for a little while (not too long) and you come back. When you come back you begin to get better than you were before. Obviously, this is a simplified version, it may translate to graffiti as well. While you are taking time of, maybe you could work some overtime and save some extra cash.

 

Just babbling ... take it for what you will.

good advice akaline, the thing is...im in cleveland ohio, not much of a scene here even though it is a big city. theres only about 9 of us really making ripples in the water...but i do agree about the "break" thing.im just one of the few people that help keep things moving around here..well enough babbling. keep posting people!

I'm in the same boat. In fact, I think I'm the captain. I'm even older than you, and my distate for the ways of the "real world" keeps me down, keeps me surly. I can't even hunt for a job anymore, the idea fills me with dread and nausea. I thought I found a sneaky way around working for a living, but it's not working out and I'll be broke again very soon. The paint stash is still OK, but thinning, and winter is around the corner. I don't like the looks of things.

Well, feel free to mail me some cash, but I can't collect from the govt. I haven't officially worked in so long, I don't qualify as unemployed (?!). I don't think I qualify for any govt. assistance, and I'm not about to brave the 2-hour lines of white trash and their shrieking offspring to find out.
