Indie 500

I thought it would have gone out of fashion a while ago, but the indie scene/way of life shows no signs of deteriorating any time soon. So instead of questioning it, i am now embracing it. They are a fairly harmless people with a general acceptance of cardigans, canvas shoes and all things art. Whilst at work yesterday I had the pleasure of two of my closest indian friends visiting me at my place of occupation. We chatted for a while and i noticed that the Indie tote bags they were holding were free of meaningful symbols or any other ink applied symbology. Lentil had the light beige joint and quiche was rocking the black so it was up to Lentil to do the deed. That's right, I asked him to do it. Even more amazing was that when i asked him if he needed a texta he happily presented a small pouch full of artliners in a large range of colours. If that isn't Indie, I don't know what is.

Here's how it goes down.

Make sure you're wearing some burgundy coloured footwear. Olive, navy, brown and black are also acceptable. Have your artliner at the ready.

Apply the medium to the surface. Notice the straightness of the lines and the scratching method to fill in the blanks. This is indie in it's purest form.

Here's a close-up view. Things are looking pretty good from this angle.

The finished product. Notice how the straightness of the stance almost matches the lettering. This is indie at it's most ferocious.

What does HAF mean?

If you want to take it to the next level, you could ride one of these bad boys around. If indie were a vehicle, it would be the Penny Farthing.
