In a creative rut? Go to the bathroom.
(Or drop out of school and smoke bud, either way.)
I love bathroom graffiti. It’s the perfect way to anonymously do what you are too afraid to do in real life—Like talking shit on people or expressing your hidden passions. Got a secret? Want to voice your opinion on something you don’t really know anything about? Go for it. Good at drawing? The stall is your canvas. Want to change the world? Quote Gandhi. Want to ruin someone’s life? Write their phone number with the words “Call for a Good Time” next to it. I like to try to imagine what the people writing this stuff are like. Where they work, who they are sleeping with, how they take their coffee. I am constantly taking photos of great bathroom graffiti, which is why I am glad I found The Bathroom Graffiti Project—check it out! Bathroom graffiti is an excellent source of inspiration, and this project is a brilliant way to archive underground art and culture from all over the world.
Here are some of my personal favorites:
