Ecko Won!

I was thinking about this guy and how he’s actually been pretty smart to make a business out of a tag. In the past I’ve heard so many arguments from graff artists about who is up the most and who has the right to paint where on public property. I have met writers that can be quite arrogant about this, which for me takes the fun out of painting at all. Then you think about a guy like Marc Ecko and these arrogant writers can’t touch him, they just can’t compete. People willingly go out and buy shirts with his tag on them. He is tagging people, on a daily basis and on a global scale. From writers themselves to celebrities, his name is there written right across their chests. I mean how many writers can say they tagged Elton John?
