Today, I like the type work on this vinyl. Don’t know who did it. That is all.

Crack & Shine

Posted in Photography, Typography on September 21, 2009 by strikethreeuk

Got this through the letterbox a couple of days ago . . .

“Graffiti is perpetually and increasingly a controversial subject dividing opinion and rousing powerful debate, yet almost nothing is known about the true motivations and inspirations of the artists themselves. Crack & Shine offers exclusive insight into this thriving contemporary sub-culture, gaining access to the personal stories of some of the most secretive, enigmatic and creative individuals to lurk in London’s shadows.

Featuring forty of the most exciting and prolific graffiti artists to have lived and painted in London, Crack & Shine is the only London graffiti book ever to be published. Also presenting the work of London-based photographer Will Robson-Scott, Crack & Shine includes a series of over 50 beautifully-composed photographs, created exclusively for the book; giving articulate and vivid insight into the awkward moments of waiting, the apprehension of hiding and the calm and stillness that comes with seeing the world from an altered perspective.”

A great little book if you’re interested in the history of London graffiti. As far as I know, this is the best publication for this sort of thing (see also the old Bomb Alert magazines which pop on Ebay from time to time). It features some of the oldest and most infamous writers such as Cos/Cosa, Teach and Fume DDS, Zomby FBS, ATG, and TPG as well as old schoolers like Drax and Elk. Interesting and quite enlightening stuff. Click the picture for more.

Gone a bit darker than I have for a while here. Drawn in inks then Photoshop for that little bit extra. I’ve made the transition to bristol board rather than cartridge paper and I think it’s serving me well, any thoughts?jarheadfinished
