    Also that prison picture reminds me of a pasting project I was going to do but never got around to doing the art for. It was a man inside a prison cell laying on the floor with his head in his hands and a graffiti style writing on the wall/title saying "REHAB"

    I'd like to see how this turns out, I'll be joining the group. Maybe I could give a few suggestions too.

    I feel the best way to go about it is to get all of our ideas on paper, put it together, and start chipping things away and simplifying them.
    Good idea. I'll start soon.

    Also, once the product is complete, if anyone is too broke to afford them, or has a shitty ass printer and no way to a kinko's, I can mail some off.

    Maybe we should think about it in a street-art sort of mindset

    As in, what we do should have a message behind it, rather than just be a mashup, y'know

    Yeah we're gonna need a theme to back up all the brainstorming.

    Maybe we should just brainstorm individually, and then come back with what we've done, then get some ideas? We need to know each other individually before we can identify as one.

    Something simple. Maybe something which we all have our own visualization of.

    Something just like.. Life.

    Or that may be too simple. Idk lol. Up to you guys.

    Yeah, it's kinda hard to make up an idea with no central theme to go off of.

    Also, maybe add this to the OP: http://www.bombingscience.com/sprayp...tegory=Ironlak

    Cheap as fuck paint online. Where I live now, hardware stores have spray cans locked in a cage, no joke. You need to get someone to unlock it so you can pick what you want, as well as showing ID to them and to whoever's on the counter.

    So just in case anyone is underage in NSW...

    Something just like.. Life.

    Well we can take it in two directions: do a little social experiment and just post a shitton of our pictures everywhere, or try to convey a message (deep or simple).

    Edited:

    We need a veeery broad topic for this first one. Like Pascall said, something like "life" or "future" or something along those lines.

    Bombingscience has some sweet ass markers, like the nicest markers I've ever seen. They're so bold and they're like 2 inches wide.

    Something about society's future or our vision of future?

    Perhaps a theme would be the reasons we each do street art.

    Maybe about consumerism and how it affects artists, the idea of "selling out"

    Or maybe about the societal stigma that surrounds doing street art.

    Future would be pretty cool, because it would be unified, but it would go in so many different directions.

    Whatever ideas you have, be thinking about how you can numb it down to a single picture involving each of our contributions.

    An idea for another time, we could take a really cool mythology, Greek or Egyptian, and all do our take on specific gods.

    Just an idea, I've always really loved Greek and Egyptian myths.



    But yes, for this time, we should do future. This will be cool because it'll be anywhere from the obvious flying saucers to the deep messages.

    This may come out odd considering I sorta glazed over the topic without reading most of it... What about the quote, "Zen Master Says We'll See" and have something regarding the overjoice or ignorance over a temporary event in life.

    I'll sleep tonight because I'm a bit low on fuel, and essentially draw all day tomorrow because I'm not busy. I might stay up a bit later and draw tonight, but I'm not really feeling it.

    Well I can think of one message we could probably all identify with, despite differing personalities and locations and so on.. Personally I think street art is best used as a form of activism rather than just doing it for the sake of doing it. Everyone who appreciates it on an artistic level is sick of those shitty tags that kids scrawl everywhere, and those artists that make large scale works or just work hard to make something good would benefit from the removal of the threat of being arrested or fined. So basically my theme idea is Make Street Art Legal. I think it would more or less eliminate the low-grade, two second shit from the public domain, since there would be no kick from doing it anymore just because it's illegal, and as I said, the good stuff would just get better and more plentiful. The number of artists using street mediums would increase a thousandfold to include all those who don't want to break the law or don't have the balls, or just don't have the time for night missions. I think Bansky wrote an awesome snippet that would complete the selling of my idea - Found it;

    "Imagine a city where graffiti wasn't illegal, a city where everybody draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall - it's wet. "

    Shit load of the graffiti in LA is nothing but idiot kids/gangs and their scrawls on building and walls. All the awesome stuff is hidden under freeways or in little corners of anywhere really where you wouldn't think to look. I hate the random signatures of dumb kids giving this kind of art a bad name.
