The most up civilian symbol? Ive debated this with many people, graffers and non. It depends where youre from. These days, in my area, its probably Something BLOCK. D, E, etc BLOCK. 4:20 is pretty universal, as well as anarchy symbol, although these are more suburban in my opinion. The "S" was ubiquitous in schools, although it was trumped on walls by pot leaves and band names, in my opinion. Bla bla loves bla bla is always a classic, as is a crudely drawn pair of breasts. I think worldwide though, the most oft written symbol is the good old male genitalia. Its universally recognizable, can be used for diss or humor purposes, and can be drawn by the skilled and non skilled alike.

 

The "S" was always a favorite though because it seemed to have no origin or explanation, but was widely known.

i call it the stussy s. maybe thats a california view of it. i dunno.

 

i drew it a million different ways. different shit on top. different angles and stupid crap. i thought it was so cool.

 

i also drew war scenes and alien heads and mushrooms. before i knew how awesome mushrooms were.

The teacher at my swedish school brought her kid in the other day and guess what he drew on his book?

He was 8 years old.

I thought of this thread immediately.

Saw this drawn in my 7yo lil bro's notebook the other day. He said some white boy taught him to do it and said it was graffiti and he replied "Thats not graffiti, its just a wierd letter. Graffiti is like when you have a name and a lot different colors with spray paint!"
