Just Stuff

What is it that graffiti artists love about painting on train cars so much? Is it the fact that, though they might be trapped in a dead end town (here I am making a rather broad assumption of graffitiers) at least their art work gets to see the country?

And I assume that they kind of see themselves as rebels and riff raff, so why is it that they tag things in such cutesy bubble letters?

  1. I wonder these things too when I pass the trains on the way to Payson. Weird.

  2. I work with at-risk youth, and we have a kid in our program who fancies himself as the premier tagger in Salt Lake City. I'm sure he's tagged up trains.
