    Someone scan it all in and post it up :teeth:

    I'm kidding.

    I might get this. Not massively intro graffiti as in doing it, but I love seeing it. Such a talent.

    So really, is there any sick books about graffiti in general I should check, rather than one dedicated to London's scene?

    London next to New York has been the hardest place to paint panels for years now. The governmant/train companies can make it as hard as they like to paint trains, and people will still do it, because its thier passion, and these people are militant. what will kill train painting is the zero tolerance policy of not letting painted trains run. i genuinly believe motorways will be the future of graffiti in england.

    pick up any issue of graphotism, theyre pretty pricey though. on a cheaper front you can sometimes track down a smaller graff maf called style file, only a fiver i think, seen them in Borders. Check out my mates site to

    so true though, a prime example is Peas. ive seen the odd tag around,nothing a non-writer would notice. but EVERYONE knows him from his roller (now changed to "give peas a chance") on the M40 is it? or M25? Although there are fewer plots on motrways, painting lorries would be siick, they go all over the shop, and itd be a pile of piss.

    You're all a bunch of no good fucking vandals. I hope the police catch you all and make you scrub it all off with a tootbrush :teeth:

    Seriously though, if I did catch you graffing on my lorry, I'd go mad.

    Basicly the same here in Stockholm. We got vandalsquads controling most of the yards and the endstations because of the backjumps we'll forced to do.
    Safest way is actually to do a "emerencybreak" as we say. You better be fast and hope that theres no wannabeheros or crazy drivers 8)
    The commuter trainscene is abit better because its a bigger net.
    The subway tho is taken out of order directly, doesnt matter if its outsidebombs, panels or insides.
    The government here got a zerovision on graffiti, EVERYWHERE. If the landlord or whoever that owns the building, doesnt buff it within 24 hours he might be fined.
    Youre right about the highways... especially the buslines has been hit very hard... nice to see!

    Emergency break on the greenline:

    friendly fire videos are awesome, big respect to WUFC and SDK. emergency breaks are practically unheard of over here. you seen Terror Fabulous?
