Isn't that Man dub just a cheap rip off of the Korea that was on the opposite wall, anyone who's been to that spot will know what i mean.

- isnt the point of this site to document the scottish graffiti scene no matter how good or bad it may be? to be honest i've never heard of this guy but it looks like he's just starting out, what writer in scotland or anywhere else didnt bite a little when they started?

any way, nice colours and letter style on the 'odone' piece, who knows in a few years you might be as good and original as the three who left negative comments.

Nah, just the swirls in the A's are the same, and aye it was a cheap dub; emulsion and poundland black. It was pissing it down at the time so it was a speedy job to cover all the dogging and squabble over the crux.

It wasn't me who sent in the flick of that dub anyhow.

the trouble with Graffiti writing and the internet nowadays is there's very little quality control anymore , posting these toy pieces is basically putting these dudes on the same level as more skilled writers who's work people come on here to look at critique praise etc. Glorifying amateur works does nothing for anyone but hey ho thats the world we live in with instant gratification and praise for doing very little. Why give these pieces any shine? There not doing anything new painting in a spot which has been no doubt painted on many occasions buy far more proficient writers. As for style like another poster pointed out they have none (Yet i'm trying not to break these guys balls fully i hope they stick with it long enough to get some skills and style) , style is a very personal thing but to use a quote from straight out the dungeons of rap " It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing" . So hear ends my rant remember kids you can't get beeter than a quick fit fitter there the boys to trust....

The black and white Odone was me trying out a new style and failing haha.
To be honest it is one of the worse things I've done recently and don't know why it's on here either as I didn't send it in.

Chuckychillout-Quality control also consists of those who post to the net. Lack of ones own self quality control is far worse than then anything else.

I'll also use a quote from straight out the dungeons of rap "when i look at myself what do i see?"

why do people spend so much time and effort on the flicks that they deem to be shit instead of putting some positive comments against the stuff they think is worthy of their approval? I dont get it.
