Hooray for Graffiti Writers!

I just wrote an article about graffiti artists in Houston for The Buzz Magazines, which you can find here.

And it was a lot of fun.

Talking to anyone who is being creative – no matter what form their creativity is taking, it could be graffiti, it could be gardening – is fantastic. When someone is pouring their energy and passion into creating something new and different, something that, until they create it, exists only in their minds, well, it feels like they’re putting more oxygen into the air.

These kids, one of whom is my daughter, are actually drawing on the table.

A piece, by the graffiti artist known as Chus, to commemorate Valentine's Day.
Can you see that the whole thing is his name?
