Tagging can often be viewed in many different lights. To some its graffiti. And to some graffiti is art and to others it is destruction of public property. One thing is for sure, when you’re creating your own artwork, a tag of your name is a must. It’s like your signature on your work.
I didn’t have a tag for my name, so I went on a hunt to find some help in creating one.
I found this great website which shows this guy who documents all the tags he sees all over Paris. In this case, it could be more of graffiti, but it is actually quite cool.
From there, I got this awesome interactive version. After that, I was kind of on my own. But I came up with lots of combinations and finally settled on one.
My only piece of advice, try to be bold and make a statement with your name. It’s your name so do it proud.
Below is how I painted it on my work.
I started with pencil, because I wanted to get it right. But I’m sure most people have their tag down pat that they just mark it on. Do whatever you feel comfortable with.
Then I started painting.
Here’s how it looks on a finished painting.
