No Im not putting my work on the net, what I write is not the issue...
The point is cartrain went over me, dont rant at me for picking on "some kid half my age " (how do you know old I am anyway?? that said he is probly less than half my age)
Yes that was a drunken rant, but I stand by what I said, dont go over people. Simple.
The problem we have today is all of these kids who can bite a style from the internet, go and buy good paint made for artists, or worse still cut a bloody stencil.... etc etc.. I wonder how well these kids would cope if it was like the old days, nuts carpaint that you had to rack, limited caps, no internet, no mobile phones, no mag, no digi cams, Im not saying this is a bad thing, the point is it was tougher then in many ways which put a lot of people off and cut out the talentless wanabees....
Where as now kids stumble over ekosystem on the net, think hey this is cool, I could do that, pick a name gay name, 100 photo copies and a trip to Shoreditch later they think they are mister big stuff.....
....and as for a work off.. please dont insult me... when I see a cartrain T2BWC (painted without the use of stencils) I might respond.

First of all, you put your age on your previous profile.
Secondly, this is considered a forum for people who like cartrains work.
Thirdly, you really need to get on and evolve with your life. Materials and resources have changed to make life easier.
I used to compete in snowboard comps in the 90s. Boards have changed, and kids learn their tricks on trampolines now. The sport progresses and evolves, and so has graffiti. You can either get with the times and appreciate the new work coming out, or you can stay bitter.
Also, your graffiti is only temporary. Think of it as a time share that you've illegally obtained. You probably pissed off the dude that owns the wall you vandalised, and on top of that, he thinks that your work is crap. So now you know how it feels to be the property owner when cartrain covers up your sh!t.
By the way cartrain, the above paragraph is a perfect example of the term "double standard". How about you make a stencil that says "take your double standards and shove it up your ass" and spray it over some of fateric's wonderful work.
