i recently watched these two movies, PIECE BY PIECE  …..  an awesome documentary about the history of graffiti.  one thing i learned, is that it’s not even considered graffiti by artists unless there’s words.   this movie is based on a bunch of graffiti artists in San Fransisco, which is apparently graffiti mecca/heaven.   i loved the art , and the stories, i could have done without the cursing though, so beware if you rent it.

and THE FALL  and if this trailer alone doesn’t make you want to see THE FALL then you WILL be missing something…

i wanted to make something after watching both movies and being inspired by words painted by graffiti artists, and the colors and imagery of the beautiful movie THE FALL.  I haven’t completely finished this yet but i wanted to show it at this stage because it’s still kind of cool.  i also had to add one more pic of my mad hatter…. i think  he turned out quite nice.

One thought on “~graffiti~

  1. Guess what! I am mailing out your journal on Monday morning, first thing. Sorry for the delay. I was totally uninspired for a bit. So glad that season is over.
    And I’m going to Amsterdam this Nov with a group from our church. We will be so close, our borders will be touching.
