    Graffiti Technique at it's best!

    Scape Martinez's book, "Graff 2: Next Level Graffiti Techniques," is the second installment of basic graffiti techniques every beginner needs to know.  Scape provides readers, students of graffiti, and professional graffiti writers with the foreground to understanding graffiti techniques.  This book is a guide and foundation for students of graffiti art, but it's emphasis remains for every artist to create their own styles, express their own feelings, and demonstrate their own passions through graff art.  Scape motivates readers to follow themselves, and does not preach to artists that they should do exactly as he does, or be confined to rules of art.  Instead, he provides readers and artists alike, a vehicle from which to found their creations on, and then provides readers with reasons we, as students and artists, should consider in every aspect of our work.  Scape poses the questions, guides us to find our own answers, and we resolve our own purpose for creating graffiti art.
