|Who knew Alicia was a tagger!|
|This skull motif was based on a photo of Ich's 2000th tagged car. |
Ich is a prolific tagger.
|Lots of rust inside this one.|
|This car has coil racks inside. The tag is a home made decal.|
I am not putting graffiti on both sides of most cars. That way I can have some variety when I take photos. I have a small number of HO cars, so I can effectively double their photographic value with different weathering and graffiti on each side
I looked at some graffiti websites to get ideas. Then I made some of my own designs. I found it ironic that graffiti web sites ask you to "respect the artists" when the artists themselves has no respect for private property.
I don't like the idea of graffiti on rail cars, but as I have said before, it is an inescapable aspect of modern railroading.
Doing the model graffiti is kind of fun. The calligrapher in me finds the lettering styles interesting.
