The answer to the question is different for each person, but here’s why it sometimes takes a long time:
People in the graffiti world have a reputation for being arrogant and self-important. It’s also difficult to prove a negative. It’s possible to get a tattoo with the word “fuck” — one of the best selling tattoos in the world — and not get called “a faggot,” even though it might make you feel like an idiot at first.
If the art you’re creating is a visual representation of how ugly and disgusting it is that is in itself an object of shame. There’s not a lot of people out there who want to be a part of such a disgusting scene, and it can be difficult for even the most well connected of people to put themselves out there and be seen as being “not the type.”
It can also be a lot harder to sell your skills to a big publisher, let alone get work. And you have to be prepared to take a lot of pride in your work (and have a creative way to express it).
How do I start off?
I’ve had it happen to me before. I would like to start off with writing but I don’t realize how good it can feel until I get in the headspace required for the art to start coming.
So I went to a local art shop and asked for help looking at some samples and then got inspired — with a friend from work — to start a piece based on my old piece, “In The Morning” [see above]. That’s when I realized that I wanted to start graffiti, like other writers, who don’t have the patience with the physical activity I do.
How does graffiti get picked up by news outlets?
Graffiti has become more newsworthy in the past two years, with the growth of Instagram culture and the influx of local news sources. A couple of years ago, graffiti artists would often go out of their way to avoid going mainstream, so they would be able to maintain a low press profile. By this time in time, this was changing. For that reason, many newspapers have become interested in graffiti and have started hiring a graffiti correspondent. This is great, but also a lot more work than I would’ve liked to do — especially during a busy workdays. But since the days of my own days ago, there have been numerous instances where graffiti got picked up by “national” media and covered by the press.
