Graffiti Patches



There are many ways of fighting that malignant scourge of evil known as graffiti. One way is to keep having your walls painted beige and pretend it doesn’t exist, which is a dull-witted and wholy provincial response. The other way is to meet the problem face-on, as in this ballsy example:

Just get yourself two cans of differently shaded grey paint, and whack a roller full right over the tag in a fat old rectangle.
