“Ive said it before, I’ll say it again… this is my favorite stage of a piece… everything from this point on is bells, whistles and tricks to dress it up and prove you can. The rough sketch is stand alone style (or lack thereof) This stage has the most energy, style and flavor… Like a singer with no stage, lights, soundboard, and backup dancers..
Graff lately seems like the movie industry with special effects… no real focus on the plot (style), just a race to see who can develop the latest
special effect to “ooh” and “ahh” the viewers… Can you have both plot and effect? sure… but some of the best films in history had no budget…
just a strong plot.
One day I’m going to throw up my outline, and leave.. And I’ll like the wall better than with all that glitter smoke and mirrors that is graffiti these days.”
