    I've always been writing my name on stuff ever since I was a little kid. My mom always tells people how I was getting in trouble for drawing my name all over stuff in pre-school. 4th grade I found a small can of paint in the house and started spraying crap on old plywood boards and stuff. Little by little I kept doing it until about 3 years ago I went out and started hitting public walls and alleys, billboards, etc..

    First can of paint, I was probably like 13. It was one of those big cans of old rusto. Experimented with that for a little bit. It was fun.

    I've never stolen a can of paint from a store, Writing graffiti alone builds your arrest record. I dont mind paying three bucks for a can no matter how "un punks" that is, it sure beats court fines. Not to mention it isnt the 80's anymore, hardware store paint isnt even worth racking. With that in mind when i was under 18 i would go with my moms to home depot and get a couple cans and tell her i was spray painting my drums. That excuse still worked when i was alone, as long as you dont dress like a thug they will sell you paint, break out the polos kids!

    However i would love to rack that fucking terrible evolve paint, how are you gonna rave about doing something for the graff scene and release such a shitty, insulting product. Claim its a blue collar hard working American made paint, and that shit is right off the boats of China. On top of that have pictures of Cope2 and Shepard Fairey holding the can like a fucking old spice advertisement. Shit like that is ruining graff.

    Well my first REAL can of paint, some chick bought for me. But i did find these 3 cans of 10 year old Sherman-Williams spray paint…. They had these caps that id never seen before, and were totally depressurized. Which sucked because they were both full and unused.

    it was a can of x-o rust that only true value hardware has I think. I used it to fuck around on my plywood cuz I was to scared to paint any walls back then. the next cans I got were fresh paint. they're $2 cheaper then x-o rust & they smell weird. the only thing I can complain about them is that they get destroyed with cold. they cannot handle temperatures lower then like 60 degrees
