you got any pictures? I'd say just keep it simple untill you're confident in your letter structure. Then just take it slow, and grow comfortable with a style. I remember how frusturating graffiti was to me when I was real into it :lol:

I say just look at different styles and artwork in books, online, etc. Find something that you like and looks difficult and try to master that style.

to paint cleaner but their style still sucks... This is what is wrong with graff today!!! 98% of graff out there these days is horrible for this fact!!! Look at guys like Seen, everything he's done has always been legible but funky as hell... you don;t need to make your stuff unreadable to be fresh!!!!

As the guy above me said... Start out slow. Get the hang of straight letters and getting the 3d right and so on. Then start bending those letters slightly and then more and more and you'll create your own style. It takes years but ti will eventually come if you stick with it. DRAW DRAW AND DRAW SOME MORE!!! Practice makes perfect!!!!

You say I'm not The "E"??? You wanna make a bet???

If you participate in graf out of genuine love, you will evolve into your own identity... You shouldn't worry about comparing your stuff to other people.

ive been doing graffiti for ten years now... and my advice is... look around you.. look at your environment.. .the shape and slopes of hills, jaggedness of buildings.. your world is built with ideas on how to improve

don't worry about paint yet. keep practicing first.
as far as paint tho either get some sekt cap adapters, a few ny fats and cans of rusto or buy montana 94 or hardcore or whatever and a few caps.

Id say make sure you know your roots and styles come from different regions. Im from the Bay Area and we had so many influences from all over the world. But it comes down to what flows the best and what suits you the best. It's not about being so wild you cant read it, but making harmony with the marriage of the letters..
