As promised. Here is the 1st video in the series. This will be one of 6 or so(haven’t finished editing) in the series. My intention is to demonstrate to those that are trying to learn, some of what goes into painting on a wall. If anything, there ae multiple tips and tricks that you can pick up regarding graffiti letters, planning, spacing, filling and outlining your own pieces. I won’t even pretend that this is the way that everyone does it because there is no “way that everyone does it”. This isn’t even how I do it everytime. But still, for those who don’t have access to a writer in your area, this is at least something to learn from.

painting big fatty graffiti letters!Was a shitty overcast day today but I had to get something up for Halloween. That, and I wanted to make a video and maybe some step by step stuff for the site.  The editing is happening this weekend so hopefully I can have that put together and posted next week.  All in all, it came out okay. Definitely not my greatest feat, I made the mistake of working on the skull last because i was trying to conserve tape for the video, but its still worth posting I suppose.  Still waiting for graffitimassive to be back up.  I am hating JustHost right now.  Seriously. Of course, thats why I started my own hosting company I guess.  If you haven’t received an invitation to the gutterhost yet, get at me because I still have a couple of slots available.  I had to limit the accounts because I want it to be manageable. Its still a one man show so I want to be able to offer the best support possible.  In the meantime,  give hostgator a try. They are the best I’ve found so far.  Pics of todays painting will be in the gallery.

Very unhappy today

by TheGone84

unfinished pieceFor those that haven’t been following, I set up a new site recently called graffitimassive.com. Its awesome really. All the goodies, forum, gallery….etc. Well, just as people are starting to join and post and all that fun, boom…down it goes. It’s been down for the last couple hours so hopefully the people that signed up find their way here. I am assured by the service people there that it will be back up in a few hours, but I am not trusting it for a minute. I need to scrounge up a few bucks and transfer it over to my own hosting. This is ridiculous…Anyway, that’s my rant for the day. Hoping for some good weather tomorrow so I can go PAINT

Surreal Photo Manipulation With Graffiti LettersI found a few good ebooks and tutorials that relate to photographing your art with or without models. Graffiti has come a long way over the years and its now even possible to make a living off of our art. Where such a thing may be frowned upon. I say that those doing the frowning aren’t good enough or just haven’t figured it out yet. Don’t get me wrong, to do it for money alone is pretty shitty, but at the same time, it never hurts to make a few bucks doing what you enjoy. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
