It’s been over a month since the latest issue of DC Magic Bullet came out so here is my latest comic in it. You can still pick up copies in select locations around the greater DC area. Below is the script.
“As more of my friends get caught and I worry about them…
I’ve begun to question whether these distorted misspelled aliases are worth continuing being a graffiti artist.
I’d like to move from solely doing letters. They feel limiting, but some well known writers’ poking fun at “street artists” has me sticking with it – regardless of losing interest in a limited focus.
I now fixate on the appeal of my body’s movement as I paint large fluid strokes, and sketch my letters with that in mind.
I begin to see painting as a meditative dance.
I wouldn’t tell my friends that of course – they’d probably think I was corny.
I also relish in the experience of the places I visit – knowing that I am one of a handful of people who saw these forgotten urban/rural spaces.
It has become more important than just a creative outlet or a social habit.
It’s exploration … leaving our mark on whatever we discover and taking a photo of our work as a reminder of those moments.”
