With original colour illustrations, GRAFF provides the basics of creating legally sanctioned graffiti, a style that's been around for many years but has become more popular lately.

Readers get real instruction for creating graffiti-style art, from sketching ideas based on design principles, to the basics of developing letter forms, to handling spray paint, to step-by-step demos for different types of compositions.
