A little bit of Sol

When I was ten, I wanted to be a writer and would create little stories or plays and make everyone in my family act them out. I self-published my stories and directed mini-movies.

I thought that was pretty bad-ass but Solveig of Brighton is a 10 year-old graffiti artist who’s even tattooed someone. She paints at legal wasteland sites throughout Brighton.

Oh, and she’s part of a graffiti crew titled AGC, which stands for All- Girl Crew.

She’s totally got me beat. Keep it up, shorty!

Check out the concentration and I’m loving the rope chain around her neck.

A quick stroll through her flickr account, brought up a mention of her father getting her some materials for her artwork. Which I think is awesome because I’m totally going to be that mom who’s going to enourage my kids’ interests as long as they don’t hurt themselves or anyone else.

Can you tell this story makes me feel all sorts of happy?

      I love to see the young graff writers. One of these days remind me to show you my black book from 1995. Always loved graffiti but never wanted to do walls, or full cars, just book pen and ink with some airbrushing. Good job on the post.
