I Think Everyone Will Agree that Zeb Is a Douchebag

This plague started just a bit before I got back. In fact, it was one of the few new things I noticed after being away for six weeks. But now it's gotten waaaaay out of control. Something needs to be done about this guy. There's just too much spraying taking place. His work comes in two sizes; big...



...and small:







This is but a small sampling of what he's done. Not pictured is his defacement of the poor closed Lusty Lady and his other, myriad "contributions" to the Belltown landscape.

Here's my deal: we here in this neighborhood live with noise, both of the audio and visual varieties. There will always be a lot of both, but when there is an excessive amount of one or the other, you feel like something needs to be done. It's either that or go crazy. Has that car alarm been going off for the last three hours? Do something about it! Did those drunk people mashing under your window wake you up? Do something about it! Is this Zeb-nozzle making this neighborhood even uglier than it was? You get the idea. The thing is that in the past, I've singled out graffitists such as Scary Skull Guy and Eye Guy because I thought that their work had context. It wasn't just initials scrawled on a wall. Well, Zeb's stuff is just that - and we reached the saturation point weeks ago. Time to stop. Nobody gives a shit where you've been. You're a dumbass tagger making dumbass tags. Stop now. Belltown is not your canvas. Some graffiti does involved social commentary, but one thing is for sure: you're no Banksy. What you're doing is the human equivalent to a dog pissing on a tree. You're marking your territory. Belltown is not your territory. Stop now, OK? There are enough douchebags here throughout the week. One with a spray can is one too many.

And please, if anybody spots this mega-douche in action, kindly break his hands.

Bravo, You must have missed the actual tree the douche tagged, to carry that piss on a tree thing all the way to it's end...

did you see what he did at the Croc? I mean the Croc, really? what an asshole...

I don't want to break his hands tho, I want in his house, so I can tag everything he/she owns.. 3a is startin' to loose ground as most hated tagger..

This person isn't just in Belltown. They have gone all city in under a month and have made contributions on the eastside. I don't like seeing it, but I am impressed.

He was arrested this morning 7/14- caught in the act! 22 year old punk- If your property was damaged (As mine was) by "ZEB" graffiti, make sure you file a report with SPD ASAP. They want to slap this jackass with a restitution bill. Plus, the more damage verified, the harder the court will come down on him! Thanks.

ONE MORE THING- I own 2 historic buildings downtown, so this was very personal to me. It seems taggers/graffiti artists have used slight discretion, electing to vandalize abandoned bldgs and alleys, etc. This guy was tagging expensive surfaces on beautiful buildings on an impossibly prolific level. Worse, I've seen 2 trees he hit! THAT'S FUCKING CROSSING THE LINE!!! Again, if you have damage, please report it to SPD ASAP.

Zeb is huffing paint and has brain damage from methamphetamine. He is also homeless, jobless and running around with untreated mental illness. He seems to be on a mission of self destruction. He will end up dead, in jail, or in a mental institute if he's lucky. The judicial system has failed this kid terribly. God help him.

I agree 100%. This guy is a douche, and everyone can agree on that. Zeb, if you're going to be a douche, at least be clever about it. Or use colors. Or SOMETHING. And quit tagging the goddamned bushes and trees. That's just fucking out-of-control stupid. We will break your hands when we find you.
