Wild Style

I just "found" the coolest little graffiti tools for the iPhone/iPod touch and computer. They are called DustTag and Graffiti Analysis and they are so much fun to play around with. They use GML (Graffiti Markup Language) to create animated 3D renderings of graffiti tags. DustTag is an iPhone/iPod touch app that allows you to write tags on the screen and control them by dragging and pinching or rotating the device. You can also upload your tags to the website, then download the GML files to your computer so that they can be further manipulated with the Graffiti Analysis software, for results like the image above. It sounds complicated, but once you watch the videos on the Graffiti Analysis website, it is pretty fun and time consuming to mess around with. You can check out some of my tags on the website here.

Also, happy 25th anniversary, Wild Style! Only three years late! What?
