In the UK some cities are providing specific sites for Graffiti artists to try to get them to stop vandalism. Slowly, it may be working. And some deserve the forum.

So many questions - is it language, can it be read by others in the know, or just the creator...I obviously have some catching up to do!

It is interesting to note that the features are very similar, although these are a great distance. Perhaps the colorjet requires them to do a job like that.When my post photos on this, you call to see.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment Thanks for being here.
