Today I'm posting the next steps in the making of my Urban Graffiti piece. Today's post is about adding the graffiti.

This is the sketch version of the photo I am using. I want to add some graffiti to the wall behind the kids. The first step was figuring out what I wanted the graffiti to say. Since these are in reality kids trying to look tough, and not real thugs, I wanted the word I used to not be too menacing. I decided that they kind of looked like they might be hanging out and one of their friends walks up to join them and they say “What’s Up?” in a very cool manner. So my graffiti will be “W’SUP?”. Now to write this in a graffiti-like manner…

I went to Google Images and found some graffiti alphabet images. I chose a style that I liked

 and mimicked it to write the word “W’SUP?”.  Here is the graffiti version of it:

I then had this enlarged to fit the dimensions of the piece so I could trace it to the fabric on the wall behind the kids. I'll have to show you that in a later post. In the meantime, thanks for visiting my blog!
