NYC Mop Review

NYC Mop
James from Oink using the NYC Mop

When grandpa Graffhead was growing up, the only markers we had access to were lame Marks-A-lot, some wide poster markers and mean streaks. Today's graffiti artist has numerous great markers and inks available. Today we will be looking at the NYC mop.

The NYC Mop is a handmade refillable mop that can be filled with alcohol based inks like Oink and dye-based inks like Garvey.

We always used to cover our markers and mean streaks with black tape. The NYC Mop is already covered with black electrical tape for you lazy bastards.

Thanks to James from Oink for the video showing how to use the NYC Mop.

Graffiti by Seks on a Moving Van

There is nothing greater for a graffiti artist than seeing his work moving. Be it a freigth, subway, bus or in this case a van. I caught this van driving on the Los Angeles 10 West freeway.
