encyclopedia - Graffiti (singular: graffito) is writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place.[1] Graffiti ranges from simple written
words to elaborate wall paintings, and it has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.[2] In modern times, paint (particularly
spray paint) and marker pens have become the most commonly used graffiti materials. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property owner's consent is considered defacement
and vandalism, which is a punishable crime. Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. Within
hip hop culture, graffiti has evolved alongside hip hop music, b-boying, and other elements.[3] Unrelated to hip-hop graffiti, gangs use their own form of graffiti to mark territory or to serve as an
indicator of gang-related activities. Controversies that surround graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials, law enforcement, and writers who wish to display and appreciate work in
public locations. There are many different types and styles of graffiti and it is a rapidly developing art form whose value is highly contested and reviled by many authorities while also subject to

How to draw a Tag Letter - Tag Drawing Lesson # 1
The diagrams below show the progression of a basic Roman letter "A" modified into a tag letter. Try this exercise yourself. You can use a
pen, magic marker, pencil, crayon or a brush with ink. Start out by drawing a basic ”A”. Then draw it again, but change it just a little.
Draw it over and over. Each time you draw the letter think about the feeling you want it to express. Use large, sweeping movements, or
sharp angular strokes. Lean the letter a bit to the right or left. Exaggerate the lines. With time you will begin to notice that your writing
starts to flow from your pen. Add little flourishes to the ends of your strokes. Bend the lines if you like. Draw it with your eyes closed.
You can do this exercise with as many steps as you want - we just showed you five steps to demonstrate the process. There is no right
or wrong way to draw a tag letter, so feel free to invent your tag letter "A" anyway you want. Below is just one possible variation. If you
want to see some traditional tag letter styles for direction go to
Tag Lesson #2.
Graffiti tagging is an artistic style of writing, similar to Calligraphy. The definition of Calligraphy is decorative handwriting or handwritten
lettering. So tag writing is simply a handwritten, artistic style of writing.

What is a tag? A tag is a nickname that you choose for yourself. It can be anything: your initials, your favorite color, your middle name,
your initials
plus a number that you like, an abbreviation of a word, something you like about yourself, such as Poet, or a word that
describes you, such as T
iny. Important elements to keep in mind are how long your tag name is (five letters or less is best) and how the
letters look and sound together when written. You can add quotation and exclamation marks, a star, a heart, a halo, an arrow, an
underline, or a simple character.
TAG LETTER EXERCISE
We hope you find this useful.
Please try it out for yourself
and let us know what you think.
Draw a basic letter "A".
Redraw the letter again.
Use sweeping
movements as you
draw. Lean the letter
over more. Really
exaggerate all the
strokes. Draw it as
many times as you want
until it starts to flow
from your pen. This is
your finished tag letter.
Continue to redraw the
letter. Make the
extension on the
bottom, left longer.
Make the crossbar wider.
Flair out the bottom
right stroke more. Draw
the letter quickly and try
to exaggerate the lines.
Redraw the letter. Only
this time lean the letter
slightly and flair out the
bottom, right stroke. You
can trace the letter on a
clean sheet of paper if you
like. Just be sure to
change it a little.
Draw it again. Add a
small extension (serif) on
the bottom, left stroke.
Curve the crossbar
slightly.

The ultimate goal of the graffiti tag writer is to develop a tag that has style. To create style
a tag is drawn quickly, over and over and over many times, to give the letters a feeling of
movement and energy. The more you draw the tag letters, the smoother and more
effortless your lines will feel (the letters will start to flow), and the more stylish your letters
will become. This is the essence of tagging.

To create your own tag, start out with basic Roman letters like these:
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. As you draw the letters, think about the feelings you
want your tag to express. Use large, sweeping movements, or sharp angular strokes. Draw
it over and over and over. See how the letters combine. Be experimental. Lean the letters a
bit to the right or left. With time you will begin to notice that your writing starts to flow
from your pen. Keep drawing the tag until you find a design that looks good. When you
find it, practice drawing it as many times as you want. When you can draw it quickly and
effortlessly, that is your new graffiti tag!
