it might do you well to use a real camera, not a camera phone. pictures could definitely improve yuor piece.Well, the thing is, I think you're wrong. While I love the professional-quality photographs folks like Steve Rotman and Plug1
take of professional-quality street art and graffiti, I believe lo-fi
tags like this (and last week's subject) are better served being
photographed lo-fi style with a falling-apart, 3-year-old flip phone.
Then again, I think everything looks better lo-fi, so I might be biased.
may also do the Weekly well to hire someone who has some sort of clue
about graffiti and street art to write this column... I cringe every
time I read it.
like I was some kind of know-it-all insider you'd like it more? I hope
you're in the minority because I for one fucking hate when
writers know what they're talking about. (And that includes
biographers.) And I mean, have you ever heard in-the-know people talk
about graffiti? It's worse than listening to wine dorks talk about
wine! So if anybody reading this wishes I knew more stuff, please feel
free to stop reading.
Furthermore, it's pretty hard to impugn
the Weekly's hiring practices when they've got a homerun hitter like
Joe Eskenazi on deck.
it's just done by a dilettante - they can't help it
so this one's not ire exactly, but I took umbrage at first because I
feel like "dilettante" carries with it a negative connotation or two.
So I looked it up and found that it means an appreciator of the arts,
or maybe an appreciator with a somewhat superficial knowledge of the
thing they appreciate. A dabbler. And that's fine, I'm a dabbler. This
feature is not called I Have Dedicated My Life To The Study Of Street Art.
for this tag I like, it rules right? Confident lines, compelling
spacing, fun curls. I dig it. And I prefer its being on this big ugly
door to the big ugly door being big, ugly and blank.
