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!

Sherwood Forlee

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.

            I got this for my boyfriend who's a graphic designer. He's hinted at having tagged walls in the past, and I got this for him to relive his glory days. :) He totally loves it! Great idea for anyone who likes to draw or even doodle.

                I bought this product for a 10 year old who enjoys art and expression. It is more appropriate for an older child, and specifically someone over the age of 14. An elementary school child needs more creative direction and this book is mostly blank.

                  I got this as a gift for a budding graffiti artist who I don't want to see get in trouble. Hopefully it's going to work.

                    This was a gift for a "child" heading off to college in a big city.....He is an artist and this was supposed to either keep him from doing his graffiti on the buildings in the city, or, to practice FOR it.....
