Hand cut stencils, spray paint, pen, water color and acrylic on water color paper.
Angelina Jolie

Not sure if this is still considered street art, cause its a stencil, or if I need to start moving these to traditional paintings, any thoughts? Let me know.

Stencils are used all the time in street and traditional art. I think you could just leave it where you post it in this category. 
Stencil art is shown in many genres..this is artwork that is inspired from a traditional picture..then made out of stencils and could end up out on the street!
I think I may have over explained myself!! Have fun!!

The yellow is too prominent for my taste.

nah homie keep them where they belong. graffiti has evolved to the point that it's now known as "street art" to legitimize it (at least in the eyes of Amerikkkans) but keep it gritty and street. i mean yeah you're using traditional methods but it's still something you'd see in a old school graff writer's sketchbook or flick book.

Thanks my man, I love drawing in black books. And you're right about America legitimizing graffiti by calling it street art.

they HAD to eventually, look at how they market products nowadays with some sort of "urban" style to it. it was only a matter of time before they took the ghetto element out of it to make it more acceptable for the status quo, which is how this country operates. i was having a conversation with a friend about how dubstep/UK grime is going the same direction. i mean come on, Skrillex wins 3 Grammys? serio? when i saw that i knew something was up and last weekend was the NBA All-Star game and whaddaya know--shitty pop groups with a dubstep track performing. no way these artists just come outta nowhere, they've been trying to market this genre in this country for awhile, they just needed the perfect pansy/poster bwoy for the sound and they found it in Skrillex. it could've easily have been Martyn, James Blake, or Mark Pritchard and his Africa Hi-Tech side project but apparently they saw something in Skrillex that they could exploit.

I am into dub step so I definitely don't like seeing pop groups use it so they can try to be the cool kids. I do like Skrillex's logo cover, its almost like a digital graff hybrid. Usually when something unique hits the main stream it's when all the heart and soul is ripped out of it. That's what commercialism does, I suppose.

yeah i'm feeling Skrillex logo as well, that whole shatter effect on it.........

i mean i see it as a double-edged sword. i could easily concentrate on the negative but to me this does give some hope to the "bedroom wizards" like myself out there who never thought their music would get recognized outside of cyberspace (Soundcloud, Bandcamp, various blog sites like Tumblr or Wordpress) or their name mentioned as a nominee for a major music award, even if it is a Grammy.:laughing: eventually the industry is gonna have to change, just like art music has been saturated and drained and smothered by the evil force of capitalism. the min they put a value on music/art it was the beginning of the end. the only people that can force that is the fans which is why i have no issue with the mp3 revolution. if the artists aren't gonna get paid by the majors then release your shit for free or independently on the web.

I love independent stuff. Ive always been like that. And I'm with you, mp3's are awesome and get exposure for so many unknown people.

oh HELL YEAH!!!!! dj's can't make money off of mixtapes like they did back in the day because of EMI/ASCAP greedy asses so they had to take the next step--upload their shit on podcasts to be (live) streamed or downloaded, AND I LOVE IT.
