For Tools of Criminal Mischief, Mr. Gastman has trawled his personal archive to present the quirky stories and visual oddities that inspire him personally: from the story of infamous Baltimore Graffiti Writer SHAKEN, to 1940s hobo train art, ’70s gang graffiti, photos of graffiti writers’ personal aerosol arsenals, spray paint collectibles and ephemera and more.

In the author’s own words — “The danger, history, process, spray cans, magic markers, and the local styles are just a few parts of graffiti that I fixate on. Different aspects interest me at different times, but what always continues to excite me is the oddity — especially pedestrian graffiti and the strange pop-culture references.”
