In the graffiti arsenal, the paint roller is a workhorse. It provides even coverage, laying a foundation for a piece or wiping the slate clean. Add an extender pole to your roller and all manner of otherwise hard-to-reach spots become a possibility. I’m an unabashed fan of blockbuster roller letters with drop shadows, the bigger and more visible, the better. And with a little practice, some unique styles can be worked out of a roller. Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of roller action on vacant billboards along the BQE as well as rooftops along the J/M/Z lines.
