No, I dont have Jerry Curls, and I was only just in diapers in '89. I know this is art, I have just never taken the time to learn the history of graffiti, and why people do it in public places instead of on canvas and paper. And why names? Why not words or pictures. Thats the only reason I asked if it was to claim something.
I've always tried to sketch stuff like this out on paper, and Im alright at it. Maybe ill get more into it cuz of you guys. I think Influx might be an okay name to sketch.
What do you guys call the work that is produced? The act of the art is 'tagging' but is it called tag, or graffiti?
Im interested, dont think im trinna make fun of it or anything. I would certainly have to train myself up for a while to get the balls to go tag a train.
Totem is mad skilled. I guess hes good at more then putting sick ass dubs together.. Is this a job or more of a hobby? I mean people would pay skilled artists forsure to freelance graffiti.. The pencil sketches are amazing. Everything is so precise, only uses one stroke, with a few tiny construction lines. Amazing work Totem.

Graffiti is graffiti.. its basically an umbrella all of what you think it is falls under..
Tagging is the writing.. no fancy colors just a signature..
Throwups... Bubble letters.. 2 colors max
Strait letters.. regular readable to the joe schmo letters.. 3 colors max
Peices.. semi styled letters not very intricate but having connections from one letter to the next.. arrows and such are introduced here..
5 plus colors here..
Master Peices.. old way of saying a wild style.. a wildstyle is a complex hard to read peice.
5 plus colors here..
Burner.. the best you got.. the wildest meanest big bad leroy brown of letters and wildstyle..
3 Dimentional.. or 3D burner.. where the burner is painted with NO outlines.. no finals just all shades and highlights..
i hope this answers some of your ?s..
