Snot Hatch

A collaborative zine between GIANT and JOKER that was published by The Skullz Press back in 2001.

“It’s supposed to discredit their work . . . and break their manhood”

Under a new directive, the NYPD is arming all of their officers with spray paint to buff tags across the 5 boroughs. With instructions to photograph the mark, “spray a square around the tag and then fill it in” with black, red or white spray paint, even the cops think “this whole graffiti program is ridiculous.” Broken windows, baby.

The New Must-Have for Luxury Buildings: Graffiti by Elizabeth Greenspan

Graffiti is used to sell lots of things, of course. In the nineties, Nike and Coca-Cola began hiring well-known graffiti artists to paint large-scale murals and to help design advertising campaigns targeted at young people. Other industries—fashion, vodka, fast food—followed. But the real-estate industry’s use of graffiti is different; after all, taggers don’t vandalize sneakers. Historically, property owners and developers have tended to consider graffiti a sign of decay that lowers property values. But that was before people started finding grittiness really cool.

Sending Your Feet Down Memory Lane

puma-icra-trainer

There was a Puma shoe that was very popular with graffiti writers in DC in the early 90s. It was worn by those who didn’t wear gazelles or had moved on from gazelles, and came in an assortment of colors. I think our friend Roger Gastman had purple? From the look of this Icra Trainer model, Puma might be bringing that shoe back. Or maybe this is that shoe? 20+ years of footwear leaves holes in the memory.
