A few months ago, I created the set design for the YCIS version of the 1970s musical classic Godspell. Director Alan Nazareno's modern take on the show called for a gritty, urban setting, so I created a huge graffiti wall using words at the central tenet of the musical's theme. I can never profess to be as great a graffiti writer as some of my idols in the art world, but for my first time using a spray can, I think it turned out pretty well! The amount of work required to write "letters" is incredible, and let it be said, I have a huge amount of respect for graffiti writers following this!
