^^^^i agree with him....why not make somehting everybody can see and read off the highway rather then a bunch of confusing lines. 

 

because some of us paint for ourselves

WHY WOULD YOU RISK YOUR ASS TO PAINT SOME BULLSHIT ON THE SIDE OF A HIGHWAY (WERE EVERYONE IS GONNA SEE IT AND POSIBLY SEE YOU DOING IT) IF NOBODY IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO READ IT (THUS YOU GET NO REP FOR DOING IT)????

 

IF YOUR ONLY PAINTING FOR YOURSELF THEN WOULDNT YOU DO IT WERE NOBODY WOULD SEE IT? THUS ELIMINATING THE LEAGAL RISKS??? :confused: :confused:

[/b]

 

1.) you can be recognized by your style (if u have one)

 

2.) most writers can read most graffiti...fuck the public..half the time i dont even want faggets to be able to read it.

APPLES AND ORENGES. EVERYBODY GOT THEIR PREFERENCES. I WAS JUST TRYING TO SAY THAT I LIKE LEDGIBLE GRAFF BETTER. TO ME IT MAKES MORE SENSE. LIKE THE ONLY NAMES FROM MY CITY THAT I REMEMBER SEEING UP AS A KID WERE THE ONES YOU COULD READ AND THOSE WERE THE HEADS THAT I WANTED TO MEET WHEN I ACTUALLY GOT INTO THIS SHIT. ALL THE OTHER SHIT WAS JUST LIKE "WOW THATS COOL" BUT I HAD NO IDEA WHO IT WAS SO THEY NEVER REALLY STOOD OUT TO ME.

 

I WASN'T REALLY TRYING TO DISS HEADS THAT ROCK WILDSTYLES OR NOTHING. DON'T GET IT TWISTED.

IN MY OPINION

 

straight letters show a writers skill more than a 500 can production

beacuse thats just what they are straight letters... theres no bullshit all over the place taking away from the actual letter structure.

i'd rather see a 2 colour straight by grey, amaze, castro (van city)

rime, setup, hot head, or countless others before a fucking piece these days...

 

fuck i hate new pieces.......

 

P.S opinions are like assholes.......

so your favourite writer would actually be what....a signwriter...??!!

 

straight letter pieces these days have become an excuse instead of a style...kids that can't wildstyle or just generally have no talent will argue till they're blue in the face that straights are the only real graff...when in fact straights were secondary to your main stlye and only done now and then...same argument goes for dudes that just tag and winge about full color burners.....weak and boring.

in saying that of course i love a good straight as much as anyone....but if thats all i could do i'd be a whiny bitch as well.

straight letters are the best. real graff.

some people think that straight letters are easier than the wild style... i think they re wrong. Some wild style piecers cannot do some straight letters right....

please stop trying to classify graf as "real" graf...it's annoying..

 

in graf history you've always had people into all sorts of different things...some heads rock straight letters, some heads rock wildstyles, some heads rock nothin but tags...it's all real graf...

 

i think the key to being a good writer is variety...but it's all depending on what you're in it for...some people like the artistic aspect of it...some people like the destructive aspect of it...

 

straight letters are a fundamental for every well rounded writer...most heads who learned right didn't start off by jumping into wildstyles, and most of the ones who did are the ones you people call biters..haha...everything's equally as important though..handstyles are key..straight letters are key..and being able to flex it is key...

 

and while those joints above are very dope, the aves, vault and esteme aren't straight letters..they're simples...straight letters don't have extensions :)
