Scratch Hack??? .:Aug 03 10:.
Ok... so growing up, we were HEAVILY into BMX riding... It's what we did. Anywho... These twins who lived up the street rode around on a bike with a sidehack that their dad welded together for them. Something like the pic below. Pretty sick really... (Pic stolen)
...But I guess they're taking it to a WHOLE other level. It's called a "Scratch hack." Please... I dont know why... where would I use it??? Don't ask...

Bring Back Letter Form... .:Jul 30 10:.
Ges (3A, UPS) has always been one of my favorite artists for his letter structure and color schemes. He is downright NASTY widdit. What I always liked most though was that he never went TOO abstract with his letter forms. A lot of kids now-a-days go SO abstract that you can't even see that the letters ACTUALLY spell something out. I mean it's cool... I don't mean any dis to those who are all about gettin all crazy with the colors and what not. But you get what I'm sayin... Anywho, I stumbled on this and thought... COOL!!! Someone else feels the same way I do...
Ges: “Ive said it before, I’ll say it again… this is my favorite stage of a piece… everything from this point on is bells, whistles and tricks to dress it up and prove you can. The rough sketch is stand alone style (or lack thereof) This stage has the most energy, style and flavor… Like a singer with no stage, lights, soundboard, and backup dancers.. Graff lately seems like the movie industry with special effects… no real focus on the plot (style), just a race to see who can develop the latest special effect to “ooh” and “ahh” the viewers… Can you have both plot and effect? sure… but some of the best films in history had no budget… just a strong plot. One day I’m going to throw up my outline, and leave.. And I’ll like the wall better than with all that glitter smoke and mirrors that is graffiti these days.”
