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.

Surreal Photo Manipulation With Graffiti LettersI found a few good ebooks and tutorials that relate to photographing your art with or without models.

I say that those doing the frowning aren’t good enough or just haven’t figured it out yet.

New Project….

by TheGone84

inPersonJust got done with the framework for http://graffitimassive.com . Seems like all the buttons work and the site flows smoothly. All that’s missing now is writers! Lots to see and do and plenty of chances to share information with fellow writers or just fans. Stop by and have a look, sign up for the forum and upload some flix to the gallery. I am hoping that this one builds up pretty quick and becomes useful for all involved. Anyway, GO SEE FOR YOURSELF

Gutterdesign

by TheGone84

jerseydtlsmlHello again!  Just dropping a quick line about what’s been going on of late.  As most know,  I have jumped into the webhosting and digital design arena.  Needless to say, it doesnt really have much to do with writing graffiti or any of the fine arts.  For that reason, I have separated the two and have opened gutterdesign.info as the graphic design compliment to gutterhost.com which is my hosting company.  I set up Gutterhost to cater specifically to the art and music communities by offering cheap webhosting that is also reliable.  I intend to move all of my sites there and look forward to jumping back into the scene now that I am home from Iraq.  All of my graffiti work and fine art ventures will still be showcased on this site so don’t despair.  In addition to all of this, I am also working on a few video tutorials on graffiti art and general design principles for those who are looking to learn about these things. As always, I am busy 90 percent of the time while still only completing 10 percent of my projects!  Hopefully I will come to some happy medium in the near future.  Until then, thank God for whisky LOL.
