I know this theme might cause some comotion due to the love people have for graff on the wallz.. but I think this will turn out to be pretty fun..

this image is pretty tame in what I hope to be a ruthless battle… but it’s all in the the name of “fun and games”…. ( F&G) planning to initiate someone to a dslng with that theme name sometime soon..

sorry …your both a pretty toys..why you create a graff dsngnl without some graff skills…dude ???? also the quick shit is quick shit………..

..so keep your hands off

Beerad

inVZbl I like the style but it looks to digital for me. The best looking part in my mind is the “Clevsone s a toy…” What did you draw this on… over clevsone under the train?

clevsone

damn calling us toys….. I think I’ll have to snap for the next flick…. no graff skillz…. I haven’t bombed in a while..but this weekend I’m gonna get out and paint some shit… Invz… you bout to get flippeed all over chicago… cheap props… but ya’ll is right it can’t be no photoshop bullshit…

Beerad

I think it would be great to see it around town. Just clean it up in photoshop. Don’t do it is illustrator or photoshop and ad strokes and drop shadows…

inVZbl

c.ram all im hearing is blah blah blah blah toy blah blah blah. If you aint got any constructive critism, just shut ya mouth. Show us some of skills if u have any flogger.

beerad, thanks for the comments. should have taken more time for placement, but i didnt want to keep clevsone waiting….

inVZbl

man i aint got time to out and bomb shite… plus i cant run that fast i get caught, my knee is fuct from soccer… Plus i couldnt really explain it to my wife that i would go out bombing, she’d probably lock me out of the house…

clevsone

inVZ>. if your from sydney..are you translating “soccer” or is it really called that there? football? :)……

inVZbl

yeah its called soccer here… “Football” or “Footy” as its well known here is Rugby League or Union.

clevsone

clevs… but with a K… klevs…. alright so I didn’t want to let your image ride to much longer either…

although I will get to the real..shi*..this weekend..

Like the piece, but the background is abit out to my taste. I would have done the piece over my one, make it look like were going over each others shite…

Also with the colours, you should have cleaned up the edges abit, so that white lil line doesnt show around it…

clevsone

Nah..since i did a peice I decided just to use your image as my insides…

inVZbl

im blind…. didnt even notice it…

clevsone

if your talking about the white line on the inside..that was intensional…but the white line on the outside I really don’t see…made it’s my moniter?

inVZbl

Im talking about the while like on the inside… it kinda looks like when your adding colour into a selection and the selection is slightly off… to me it doesnt look like a white line since u can hardly see it… maybe abit thicker… who knows

clevsone

invz.. if your viewing it on a PC moniter it looks like crap.. and I know what you mean about that white line then…

inVZbl

i’ll be posting soon, just havent had time to scan the piece i was incorporating into the work… wont be long now.

clevsone

soundz cool I most likely wont respond for a bit..I’ll be out in vegas for NAB on thursday and actually want to post something of quality..for a change…

inVZbl

This is a lil phuck u to the toys remark earlier made from a memory chip… i feel buggered (a random thought)

man i havent done piece’s in ages, i think thats why my style feels old skool. Still feels like some of the shite i used to do 10 years ago…

tacosaurus

that is spraypaint, like the hole in my head.

inVZbl

ke?

Beerad

I think it’s been said that real paint isn’t being used…

inVZbl

ohh i swear i used paint… straight from painter… it came in a paint can… it looks like paint… its got brushes on the outside… Are you telling me that i have been duped????

cram

inVZbl…..are you playing soccer like you do your styles… i´ll give you a look to my graff and soccer skills next time.. so check out my next dsgnl…..

inVZbl

um okay

inVZbl

c.ram that actually could be a good dsgnl.. a soccer match… what u say after i finish this, we do one on that theme???

cram

ok inVZbl….a soccer match is a great idea… so i check the startsplash, if your graff dsgnl needs more time.. i´m going to initiate the theme…!!

inVZbl

yeah stuff waiting for this to finish, go ahead and intiate… i will do a juggling act with the other designologues im doing at the moment… get it… a juggling act… oh good im soo funny (it 2am here now so what ever i say just ignore it)

clevsone

Hey I’m back in good ol chitown.. I got a crap load of work to get done but I thought I throw this together real quick to get this over wit already and move on to bigger and better things… I swear for my last image I will final get off my ass and go out and paint some shiznit..

Thats kewl, take your time, no need to rush shite….

better off leaving this going on rather than put quick shite up…

RevDrLuv

I like that this one is trying to say something about the current state of graffiti art.

The composition and detail however are very weak.

xavi

agree with inVZbl and Rev. In other way I don’t like typo use there…

why are you just tagging? why not try to really dsnlg graffiti instead of doing real graffiti? I don’t know I’m clear with this… some help out there to say what I want so say in a better way? Is there a doctor in the house?

RevDrLuv

My diagnosis…

Lets use graffiti to talk ABOUT graffiti, instead of just writing our names in it. (a generalization, but u know what I mean)

That’s what I like about this image. It seems to be talking about the corporate adoption of graffiti to give their product “street cred.” Had the design been as clever as the concept this coulda been a “4” quality piece.

clevsone

I agree the design sucks… I was going for the commercialism of graff trying to make it look like the front of a mag… I could have done way better I don’t know what makes me just post these stupid ass images without taking my time and thinking of ways to improve the design to fit the concept better..I hate when right after I post I think of about a million different ways to improve a design… I’ll blame it on the overload of work I’m behind in screwing with the brain cells I have left after a trip to vegas and the virgin islands..

xavi

I can add to Rev diagnostic the word exploration. Graffiti warz gives me a lot of ideas to dsnlg about, just like a man tagging the great wall and another trying to clean out the stuff…

I don’t wanted to say that your design sucks, in fact I don’t think so, I’m just missing exploration there.

Thank you doctor, how much is?

btw clev, what about your new dsnlg proposals on the lounge? Have you sent any request? There are some concepts fine to work on, send me a request if you dare ;-)

Beerad

I like that your brought the other DSNLG into this one. The colors are what bug me the most…

inVZbl

Yeah i agree that we havent really approached graffiti from a point of view rather than straight tagging piecing shite…

i will try to move it in a different direction with my next post…

inVZbl

obey ur thirst and be kewl and bomb wit da best of dem… piece out Gfunk…

cool way man!

Beerad

wow missed this getting put up. Wait to play on the new style. I really like it, played on the sprite wonderfully… This is something you would see in a mag.

clevsone

no where to run…

I think it looks pretty neat, fun sort of ad for Designologue. The light from the cop car seems funky to me. Would of been good to see a little light from the sirens on the cop car.

xavi

nice shot! but… isn’t it too dark?

clevsone

I was going for dark.. since the cpos would be creeping up.. and thats the best time to paint..

inVZbl

The hidden dangers in graffiti… always use a rope.

man what a way to end it. The paint run down at first I liked but then again. Cool image to look at. Did you draw the poilce cars? This was an adventure to watch.

g3aR

Wow awsome job!

i love the paint dripping down…. vey creative!

inVZbl

tanks, wasnt sure which way to finish it… this seems more poetic…

clevsone

love it!

creighton

Out of the entire series, this image is easily the best of the bunch. The last two definitely pulled this dsnlg in a good direction, though image #7 wasn’t executed nearly as well as it could’ve been. Great job on this one.

commudesmax

I dig the whole composition in this image. Very well done., And the vector and image are nicely blend. I really enjoyed this DSLG.^_^

yusecki

Ouch! Thats gotta hurt landing on the kerb like that!!! Great image though.

daload

XcellentE!
