Graffiti Cookbook is a guide to the materials and techniques used within today’s most creative and progressive art movement. In hundreds of pictures and illustrations and 35 interviews with some of the world’s most famous artists the authors show how graffiti is made. From spray techniques and hand styles to tools and style analysis, Graffiti Cookbook takes us on a trip around the world in the search of the tricks and trades of graffiti writers. We even learn how to build our own wall. After hundreds of books filled with pictures of graffiti published in the last few years finally one is showing how the artists work.
Graffiti Cookbook is filled with tips and examples of how to create your own piece, tag and throw up. These techniques can be used on all kinds of materials, textile, glass, metal, concrete or wood. Graffiti Cookbook gives an unique insight in the alternative art world and is a rich inspiration source for those interested in do-it-yourself-culture.
Bates, Bios, Chob, Egs, Jurne, Kacao 77, Kaos, Mad C, Rosy One, Shoe, Smash, Swet, Cost88 and Vino are some of the featured artists in the book.

Via the brothers Nick and James over at London-based Pistache, is a pretty interesting video from Erick Sermon. It’s not based about MPC production in this video, rather what you cam accomplish on a keyboard. Whether you’re already established, or just starting out; it’s always good to learn new ideas and techniques to hone your craft.
As well as this video, Pistache also print custom shirts, caps, surfboards and skateboards. As well have a whole host of other tutorial videos including how to screen print, MC, DJ, paint shoes, graff and a whole bunch of other tutorials. It’s a super addictive site, and who doesn’t like supporting grassroots companies? (Hey guys, if you wanna help design some nice capss for us then that would be super nice. Probably best all snapbacks as we all generally have giant melon heads).
