Question: can you get up with stickers

You can get up any way you wish. I believe stickers/ slaps came about for people wanting to hit up high traffic areas in broad daylight so you could walk around a busy town city in peak hours with thousands of people around you and just slap a sticker on a post electric box doors windows etc etc as it is a one second slap.

In a word - yes. Stickers are by far the easiest way to get up. You tag stickers in the comfort of your bedroom and then slap them up in less than a second on poles, doors, electrical boxes, newspaper windows, bus stations, door ways, backs of road signs (like a stop sign), etc. 

 

Peel the paper backing off, cup the sticker in your palm with sticky side out, and just walk. When you see a spot - nonchalantly "slap" the object leaving the sticker behind. People around you won't know if you put the sticker there or if it was already there... if they even noticed you slap the object, or even care.

I wasnt stwering you wrong mang . and if you really want them to run. For ever . you take the newspaper out the front of the holders on the street and slap your sticker on the part that pushed that days papper to the front . so that way there every time somebody grabs the last paper your sticker is seen. Some time you can slip them on the inside the door too that way there its in front of the news papper but might get peeld . also say your hand style isnt that good make one stencile amd spray it on 1000 stickers . also .if your in america you can walk in the post office and walk out with as many of these (picture below )as your want .

Or have somebody 18 order them online. With fakes busines name and bang 1000 at my door step

Again messy sketches but just ideas of letter formations each drawing in my mind feels better. Not saying they look any good at this point in time, but in my head I can see where I’m going.

Yeah!! This is looking really good. You should paint that. 

 

One of my favorite writers from the 90s era of New York Graffiti was this guy DERO. He had such an iconic New York style with some great letter connections, but I thought in particular his D and O might be some good inspiration. Even the way he would fill in the dead space between his D and E was really good.

Yer I like the way he extends the top of the curved bar on the D into the top bar of the E neutralises that dead space nicely.

Yeah, I use my tablet all the time. So easy. I can sketch, create another layer and edit that sketch without erasing the original, and just keep adding layers. It's always interesting to go back through and see how the sketch evolved. 

 

Plus I love using Mr. Baker's brushes...

These are definitely stand-outs for me. Each one you posted is different from the other which tells me the writer is learning, still. They haven't found the one style that feels comfortable from which they can grow, which is typical. I don't mean that as a bad thing, I mean... after 34 years of writing  I keep changing my style up, though I do linger in one style for quite a while. 

 

Anyway, your friend's work isn't bad.

ok thanks joker im gonna tell him that.  

 

I drew a lil bit in the last days aswell, i tried to write Hörbi (ö is a german letter, idk how to explain how it sounds but its something like the ea of early i guess) so Hearby would probably be the closest. 

Idk if these are any good, ive tried to make them pretty simple with nothing to fancy. im just trying to sketch alot over the winter. The last one isnt finished as u can see but i liked the R and the B so far and wanted to know what u think of it

First, I want to cover something I see often, and that’s the middle bar of letters like B an R. There’s a tendency to make that middle bat as thick as the rest of the bars of the letter, and it makes sense to think that, but if you look at a regular typed letter R you’ll notice that the middle bar is thinner than the rest. Carry over that thinking into your Graffiti letters and your letter B or R will look better for it.

Because you singled this one out I’ll give some feedback...

 

I think I mentioned this to Ray, but some of your bars look like you took a ball of clay and tried to form them into parts of a letter... specifically the left bar of the R. Try to think of each bar of your letter being the same weight (except the middle bar of your R and B should be thinner). You can stretch sections out, like toward the end of the bar or maybe a rounded section,  but try to keep bar weights similar. That B is pretty good but the R looks like it’s got some work to do. 
 

I played around with it for a second just to give you an idea of what to consider...

Just dropping in here to say, the toy thread really is banging, The help being put on for people here really is something, I remember spending years, and I mean YEARS, being fucking terrible and not being sure how to fix it. To get this kind of advice is huge.

 

Anyway, keep on keeping on guys.

Kinda new here, but here’s some quick pieces I was working on today. I’ve been trying to attempt my pieces in the same way I do my throwies. I’m trying to lay out the lines for the bars in one clean stroke rather than sketching them out slowly. 008B7CC1-2BFB-4AA3-9575-34FBD7DC09B0.thumb.jpeg.a32883bc1f8604376bd48eb5693852ff.jpeg0DE7F10D-4CA2-41D7-A08B-444BD401A015.thumb.jpeg.5bd186376f0f86c6d6eaa24e864775ed.jpeg

@Aristo - I like the style, and its great that you’re conscious of keeping your bars the same weight. I took some liberties and made a few edits to your sketch to show how you could bring some flow into it... I mean, the flow is there but you’re stubbing the toe in a few areas, so to speak. 
 

The bar coming off the first letter naturally flowed right into the left bar of the R. You could also play off the middle bar of the R and give yourself the I that can nestle in neatly between the A and R. The T and O were both fine IMO so I didn’t really touch them. 
 

See my note at the top of this page about not double weighting the middle bar of the R.

 

Not sure if you were looking for help or just sharing, but I figured I’d give my feedback just in case.
