Hi, my name is Stephan Housewold, I’m here at State of Confusion Skate Park, and I’ll give you some tips on how to paint aerosol art. First you have to get started with the sketch, the sketch is important because you need it in order to transfer your art from the paper onto the wall. Some common flaws in letter forms is over analyzing the letters and making them non symmetrical. The first flaw that amateurs usually do is they try to over analyze their letter and twist it and turn it all different ways, but it has no flow to it, and it just doesn’t visually look pleasing. Most important thing to remember about your sketch is to give it flow on both sides and make it symmetrical, that’s the least of my trick. Everyone approaches their artwork in a different way. Some approach it in a more abstract way, and some approach it in a more what graffiti writers call the straight letter way. For the O on the how 2, which I will be painting today, I substituted the O for a monkey’s face just to give a little bit of flavor. Your sketch could change from here, once you put on to the wall, depending on your space, so your sketch isn’t always definitely what you’re gonna do. This is slightly different than what you’ll probably see as my final result, that’s only because my space is different than when I’m at home sketching in my sketch book. So the, I usually color in my sketches, but the color in the sketch doesn’t always necessarily have to be what your fill’s gonna be or the colors. It’s just to give you an idea of what you wanna do. This is a little bit about sketching your idea, now let’s get started.
