    About eight years. I really think, somehow, your intelligence comes into play in graffiti. It seems like I never see drooling idiots with talent. Most established writers:

    a) have been writing several years (Most worth looking at, at least 7. With the exception of Die.)
    b) don't speak out of their ass about sibjects they have no knowledge of. (Meaning anything at all, not graf-related)
    c) Have a sense of humor.
    d) Speak their mind.
    e) break the mold of typical graffiti ideals.
    f) don't run around spouting "Graffiti should be legal! Marijuana makes you graf better! Fuck whitey! Graffiti is ART just like everything else"-
    g) realise arrows are unecessary at best.
    h) Won't have to read anything I've written here.

    Cope's a prime example. if you're a retard, you end up overweight with 20 years of no improvment, a name you jocked from someone else, and a throwup you got from someome else.

    Be weary, kids.

    Having your own style and mastering/perfecting and actually getting up and being active to me, makes you a veteran

    i would say time in the game.............the first 3 years odds are you'll be toy with improving skills ......the next 3-7 years youll start getting a few props and should be breaking through the toy persona ...(alot take advantage of this time to destroy the city and become local kings) after about 10 years of activeness and traveling you will start to get more notoriety and respect from out of towners ....and possibly sell a canvas or two......after 11 years of actively painting you should have mastered your style or have enough styles to earn your respect show offers will slowly start coming your way..
    after 12 years in the should find the best toy your city has to offer and fuel his passion for graffiti art and hopefully his passion for running around and painting on everything in sight will rekindle your love for vandalism -RAWKET

    ^^none of that has anything to do with graff...
    this description could go in the "what seperates real writers from hipster, culture jockers" thread....
    also art shows have nothing to do with being a vet IMO

    if you cross kids out then bitch out from writing a tag, your a toy.
    if you beef with people for no reason too.

    a toy is someone who beefs with a veteran just to get fame.
