    u have to be retarded to want to start in a small town or a rural area, i live in a small town and there are absoulutely no other writers do u know how fucking hard it is to progress alone with no advice or no one to paint with ?!

    a big city wud be better like san fransisco or new york that way u cud meet other writers and things wud come together quickly and it wud be more fun then doiing it alone

    I personally started out in a smaller town in hidden places because once u get into the bigger city it's time for you to shine..THINK OF IT LIKE THIS....WHEN YOUR IN THE SMALL CITIES YOUR IN THE MINOR LEAGUES AND ONCE U GET INTO THE BIGGER CITY YOUR IN THE MAJOR LEAGUES.. :D

    at least with a small town you have way less cops, and little towns have little backroads so its easier to run. but ya, way less spots. i started at my local skatepark, and if ther was no room, id just paintroller over the worst tag there and just kept practisin.( by the way i live in a small town.) :ph34r:

    Huge city ! More places to paint and its harder to be noticeable. Which means not so much attention from police.

    both have ther own pros and cons...small town has its advantages becuase in the early hours of the morning theres not a soul in sight. then again theres more of a scene in larger areas.

    but i knew a guy who lived in the burbs near toronto, and he was one of the well-known writers in this hood, anywyas he moved to the inner city and he just quit writting becuae it was so hard to compete and get noticed amongst all the writers in T.O...pretty gay reason but i kinda understand.

    a huge city would get u no attention especially like nyc or philadelphia

    I live in a small town(in argentina, so don't ask where :D hehe) and It's really a shit, because if you do a lot of tags ald bombs your name comes know too easy, but not in the graffiti artists <_< , all the shitty people talk about your name.. its a fucking nightmare. you don't have graffiti writters for go bombing, an real danger about get know too easy..

    I wish can live in a big city, if cops see you(in some places) they dont give a fuck and they dont butter you

    Im starting in a small town, and i did a really shitty bomb on some shed at an elementary school probably about 2 or 3 years ago. and a couple nights ago my friends were walking intown and the cops pulled them over and accused them of shooting cars with paintball guns and all this bullshit- even tho they had NO evidence. and my friend told me that the cop brought up the fact that there had been "recent" graffiti at the school and he described the bomb i did... goes to show you how a small town cop who is bored with no action can become a corrupt crimecraving assfuck and hold a grudge against the little things- i would say start in a big city if you can.

    and that piece i did- i actually did 2 for practice, 1 on a baseball shed thing and another on a bigass cement wall that was dreamy when i saw it- heres what they did they ripped the shed down and dragged it off the baseball field. And with the cement one- they painted over it and built a random NEW shed that to this day has nothing in it.

    bastards with too much time on their hands -.-
