But Officer! This Is Totally Legal!

A blank city wall with a fresh coat of paint - is there anything more appealing to doodlers, dreamers, and graffiti artists?

Indulge your inner vandal without the risk of jail time with this creative and fun Walls Notebook. With 160 pages of blank urban wall photographs, this paperback is just begging to be defaced, or at least decorated. Comes with a pack of 10 completely legal, dual-tip, thick-and-thin markers.

Designed by New York City designer Sherwood Forlee, who also tagged our copy of the book (pictured). Your notebook will come completely blank. Have fun!

Featured in Time Out New York magazine.

Sherwood Forlee is a designer with no design or art education. Instead, he studied fluid dynamics and partial differential equations, and then barely managed to graduate. But graduate he did, and with a high-falutin' sounding title to boot: "Mechanical and Aerospace Engineer." Despite this, Sherwood calls himself a designer because it sounds hip and no one likes hanging around a nerd at a party.

Following graduation, Sherwood went to work as a product design engineer. After cutting his teeth at a few firms, Sherwood decided to see more of the world and set out on adventures that would lead him to Tokyo (where he was accosted by the yakuza for trying to sell homemade T-shirts on their territory), the Azores (where inclement weather stranded him for a few days without food in the wild), Zurich (where he was forced to climb a perilous mountain with two massive rental bikes atop his shoulders), and many other places. Today, Sherwood enjoys a more peaceful life in New York City working once again as a product designer.

Still reading? Well then, a little more on Sherwood. He was born in Hong Kong and lived there for about a year. Afterwards, he moved with the rest of his family to Zimbabwe, Africa. It was here in Africa with his wildlife artist father (who, by the way, escaped from Communist China to Hong Kong by means of swimming the shark-infested waters that separate the two) that Sherwood cultivated his passion for adventure, the arts, and travel. Fond memories include throwing stones at bull elephants to make them charge so that his father could get a few good photos to work with before speeding off on a dilapidated motorbike. Nowadays, Sherwood has a bit more regard for his well-being and prefers doing back flips onto hard concrete over being chased by scary animals.

      Comments about Graffiti Set:

      I got this for my husband for one of his Valentine's Day gifts. He's a graffiti artist and he loves it!! There are way more pictures than I expected and it's been really fun for him. Also, the markers work better than I expected and they came with 2 awesome temporary tattoos (which I used). Overall, he and I are very satisfied with this product.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I ordered this item when the country was experiencing horrible weather conditions, so I was worried it wouldn't come in time for Valentine's Day.. but it did! Delivery time was great and the product was in perfect condition. Thanks a lot Uncommon Goods!

        Comments about Graffiti Set:

        I saw and immediately wanted this product for my daughter who loves graffiti.[...] My daughter was so excited when she opened the box! She sat down, started to draw with the accompanying markers, and found that they bled through the next two pages. SO disappointing because it's such a great idea...but useless as designed.

              I bought this as a gift for someone who loves graffiti. I sent it across the country to family and friends and had everyone do their own graffiti page to surprise the recipient with kind words from all who love him. Excellent book!

                I purchased this for a student of mine in order to keep him from painting graffiti on actual walls. It's cleaner and doesn't come with a large fine if he gets caught drawing. :)

                    I bought this for my niece, age 10. However, the book is filled merely with pictures of blank walls. How about a couple fun examples of graffiti to be copied for a beginner? I went online and printed some, but it is not nearly as "together" as I was hoping it would be.
