Hello again fellow travellers! Today we have for you the 19th and VERY much awaited installment in our letter studies, the ever popular letter S in graffiti style! I don’t think I have had as many requests for a single letter so far as this one. The funny thing is, it’s probably one of the easiest letters to make! Very simple shapes, very simple structure, the letter S is another of those many favorites that a graffiti writer just LOVES to spend time on. Don’t believe me? Just take notice of how many writers’ tags start with this fine letter! Not much else to say about this one really. The freeform structure and effortless flow of this letter allow it to stand alone from all the rest. So much fun to be had with this one so, like every other letter I’ve shown you so far, practice it like mad until you get something that you can call your own. It is so easy to manipulate this letter while still retaining it’s value and identity that almost anything goes…… almost.
Sorry for the delay, been out and about being an artist! HAHAHHA. Anyway, here we have the eighteenth installment in our graffiti letter studies, the amazing letter R! This is another of my all time favorite letters because it’s so fun to mess with. Very simple when done simply but can be really turned out when tweaked and twisted. It seems to me like most writers I know really get into drawing this letter for the same reasons I do. The most commonly used letters in the alphabet often become signature letters of the artist creating them and this one is no different. Work with it and its unique structure until you have something that is identifiable as your own and no one elses’. Everything else tends to fall into place style-wise once you master these common letters. As with everything, practice is key so keep it simple and keep on practicing!
But then, I guess my lack of attention can only be a statement to my being busy doing other wonderful things HAHAHA. Regardless, here we have a letter study of the letter K. Not a bad letter to play with. Very static in it’s construct which ,makes it very hard to manipulate while still maintaining its true character. As with most of the letters though, simplicity is key! Learn fast how to do this letter in its most primitive form and it becomes very easy to manipulate into something more unique to your own style and liking. I think you’ll have a lot of fun with this one. I know I did!
On a side note, and hopefully you won’t take this the wrong way because my motivation in creating this site is hardly in search of riches, but a whole lot of work goes into doing these drawing by hand and maintaining the site to keep posting them. The few of you that may know me also know that I maintain a family of other sites related to the display and passing on the tradition of this craft. The majority of the expense in keeping this going has come from my own pocket in a period in history when times are pretty tight. I’ve been forced financially to have abandoned a few of the sites and and may be in jeopardy of abandoning more(to include this one) due to financial and time restraints. I am grateful beyond measure for the people that have taken to visiting the site regularly and hope that many of you find it a resource that helps you grow in the vocation that has brought me so much happiness over the years. My only request of you in return is that if you have a few bucks to spare, click on the paypal button on the righthand side of the page and throw a bone my way. Any money received will only be used to maintain the sites and to bring you more fine artwork to look at and hopefully draw inspiration from. If you don’t have anything to spare, then do the graffiti world a favour and stick to your practicing. Learn as much as you can and do your best to master this fine artform and the gratification that comes with your success. Pass it on and forward what is offered to you for free. It is not often that we are given anything in this life and these sites and this information is my gift to both you as a people and graffiti art as a whole and again, I appreciate the following this page in particular has gathered. It is an honour to have your attention.
