The Graffiti wrap up

Is it really graffiti if it is done on paper in a journal.  Graffiti is by definition marks on a wall.  Therefore this whole journal on graffiti is just a journal and not graffiti. I threw in some collage just to start bringing it back to a recognizable form.

Creating Graffiti

If I am going to create Graffiti, I am going to have a tag and Darren just doesn't cut it, so I have created some awesome tag pages using the  street name "Dares".  They are primarily done with paint, pencil, paint marker, and oil pastel.

Louise's Tag

This was a birthday present for Louise back in January.  I felt I had command of how to make a creative graffiti tag so I created this one for Louise, and  as an aquarius I knew I had to have a water element in there somewhere.

My Pets are Marking TheirTerritory Again

Well at least they are tagging.  Anyone who is put off by graffiti as a form of marking territory, and considers it to be vandalism, may prefer what my pets do to mark their territory.  It is not a visual marker that they have been there but a scent marker, or in some cases both! Yuk. We are replacing those markers temporarily with graffiti to compare.  Signed on the front of the house are (from bottom left to right) Bella (Hells Bells), Adele, Fausto and Bolt.  Sophie who can manage somehow to hang from a second floor screen has marked between the two upper floor windows.  In the middle is a testimonial to Fausto's favourite drug of choice, catnip.

What if Everyone Tagged?

I have a day job, and I have made journal pages for a few of the people at work as if they were creating their own tags, ie. graffiti. King of Cars, Big Poppalicious, Hammer Time, and Ken Doll

The Cover of My New Graffiti Journal

This is the cover of the new graffiti journal as promised on the final page of the previous journal.  The journal is entitled, "STR8UP: Graffiti: Art or Urban Menace" It is made with collage from a French graffiti magazine called "Innercity"
It seems the French are more accepting of graffiti as an art form, at least I come to that conclusion from the pages of Innercity #17. All of the rest is done with markers including the 'graffiti'.
