Here's a "Girls" blackbook piece for 1986. it was an actual battle piece. There were 4 writers I represented philly - one MD, NJ and PA, we all agreed to do a "Girls" piece, I was done in 45 color and all. The other writers were still doing letters..hehhe the good old days. the funny thing is I came across the blackbook I did this in about 4 years ago. pretty funny, the dude was cool and let me have the page. Dam I must have done over a couple of thousand black books over the years....damn I'm old.....

You are never too old for graff, you know once it is in your blood it will never leave if you are true to this sport.

 

As far as seeing graffiti develop through the years, it's been pretty amazing. I do think the majority of writers today don't have originality. Either people are doing the 3d style (daim/nosm), or a Ces and Fx Style. Don't get me wrong there are some writers who have some original stuff but it really seams that alot of the styles look the same. I think the whole internet thing makes it easy for a young writer to cop a style and run it. and all of sudden that writer is thought of being great with only 1 year in the game. I would love to see writers be more creative and understand letter connections and flow to a wildstyle.....

 

peace for now
