I have to weigh in on this having been a design student in NYC. Just look at the age ... 21. So how old are first years when the head of to art school, architecture school, design school? 19? So that means you can't go to the art supply store by some oaktag and sharpies and do posters? Can't spray paint that chair you picked up on Canal Street when you were walking home?

I remember them locking everything up at Pearl Paint it was and still is stupid.

I hate graffiti that isn't more than someone marking their territory like a dog. But I think that graffiti is free speech, its art, and art continues to frighten some people.

We need a more creative solution.

Just think about 7eleven locking up cigarettes like new york locks up spray paint. That would be something.

Now you've got me on a rampage. For the next week I'm going to photograph graffiti... maybe I'll ask some of my compadres at Flickr to help me out. Keep a lookout for my post for the gallery.


I saw some typos above... teachers please don't give me bad marks. It was a first draft. I cleaned it up and posted an image at my blog for a start. Christian is right.... I'm just getting started.
