Letter Studies 12. Graffiti Styled Letter L

On March 5, 2012, in Letter Studies, by The Gone 84

Hello again!

Dropping a new letter on you and a pretty interesting one it is! Lots to do with the letter L in graffiti writing. Its an extremely simple letter but can be represented in numerous variations! Another of the letters I like to refer to as “Style Defining”, this letter is one that becomes tied to an artist because it is pretty difficult to master.  It seems like all of the simplest letters are that way. I present to you a few different ways to demonstrate this letter and its myriad capabilities.  Don’t bite them line for line, but look back through all of the letter studies so far and try to marry together some of the more common elements.  It’s always best to start really simple at first because if you don’t learn the actual structure of the letter, any embellishments you add will just make it obvious that you’re fakin’ moves. I do all of these in the simplest form possible so that you might gather a sense of letter structure as opposed to just twisting letters in all kind of disjointed shapes and coming up something more akin to a mess of spaghetti than actual words.  You’re friends might think you’re the baddest graffiti artist in the world, but anyone in the know will likely laugh your happy ass right out of the room. So take your time, use your eraser and beat up these letters until you get them right.  You’ll thank yourself for the time you spent learning.
