Default Getting into Graffiti

I've been pretty into Graffiti, I love everything about it.
All ive done is some tagging and some stencilling, my parents are happy to support me doing graffiti. How should I learn? They are happy to pay for paint.

Start simple. Don't worry about shading yet, learn how colors lap and to keep a consistent speed, no runs.

Anything else you would like to add?
Specifically should I sketch everything out properly first?
Is there anything wrong with cutting a bit off someone's style (biting)

It depends if you live in a large city just go tagging and find some friends, cop their style. Most artists are pretty cool as long as their not vandals (gangbangers and shit like that) so get out and talk to them. Keep a sketch pad with you at all times and just draw in your free time, most of your work will come from these. Yeah biting a bit of style is fine just don't paint over other people's work if you're coping their shit, that really pisses people off. Find clear space, cross out toys, and let real artists thrive. Learn about the different types of paint, caps, markers, pressure of spray cans, inks they all determine how your work will come out and are huge tools to successful street art.

I like to frequent this site as well it's a great place to start.

I used to love that site. :'(


Just don't forget to wear a respirator when you go sharpie-tagging, those fumes can be killer.

Hold can further from wall........

Also this is up to you, but you might want to change your name. It's easier to write only 3-4 letters, mainly when doing pieces or throws. Maybe Rekt? But as I said, it's really up to you.

Also, if you want to get your tag perfect, write it over and over on pieces of paper. It will eventually be a muscle memory of the motion your hand and wrist goes in to write it. And maybe you should be saving the cans and using (or better yet making) some markers for tags?

I didn't decide on my name for a good while, mess around with all types of lettering and styles to see which fits you best. Some letters look better in certain styles and you may be better at certain letters. Literally experiment with everything, I used to use real jagged letters, and one day I started making the lining real smooth and curvy. I now prefer that style over the rougher, boxed style, so just always play around.

I've been considering shortening DYREKT

I was thinking of potentially writing KAMI, PEPSI, DYRE, or DYR if it wasnt a 3 letter tag which I thought might be confused with a crew.

Even better, if you write enough with one of those, people will think you're a crew. Then one day let's say you meet another writer in your city (Which is bound to happen if your good), and you tell them you write that but it's not a crew. Their reaction:

I used to "write". It's fun but also a waste of time, IMO. I stopped doing it because I want to get attention from contributing to society not being a vandal I can still give you tips though. Since you're a beginner, I say start simpler. Master the simple letters first. Everything else will follow. On the streets, write BIG. You're doing illegal stuff so you might as well go as crazy big as you can.

Everything is a waste of time. None of it is contributing, because you are "contributing" to something that will all be dust eventually.

Damn, maybe you should start writing "BUMP" instead, since you like the word so much.

Graffiti is something you need to experience for yourself to find what works for you, not keep asking questions about it.
