q25Bet ya weren’t expecting this one so quick! Oh yes, it’s another one of those perceptively tough letters that really aren’t as tough as they seem once broken down. Letter Q is simply an O with a line sticking out. How hard is that? That little line affords us so very many possibilities and variations that this letter is plenty of fun to work with and can become a big challenge when trying to arrange new styles!  It can be made to fit into everything and really can be a game changer for the aspiring graffiti artist.  Practice this one, practice it frequently and obsessively.  Have lots of fun experimenting but make yourself work for a unique result.  Keep in mind that you are pursuing a great tradition in not only graffiti as an art form, but in what is really the LAST vocation that revolves SOLELY around handwritten typography.  Even sign painters are using computers these days!  Our reputation is in the skills that allow our hands to express our minds to an audience that likely didn’t ask for what we have to share with them but as a majority are finally coming to the point that they recognize it as art.  This is where it all begins so practice this, learn how the letters work both alone and together.  We are almost at the end of our alphabet and will soon be ready to advance to the next phase of our learning.  Enjoy!
