does anyone know how i can get in touch with any graffiti artists?

i know that this is going to sound funny but i received a letter from the city of aberdeen md were we reside concerning my motorhome being parked in the driveway. the driveway is 80 ft long and my coach is 35 ft long. i have it parked all the way back on the driveway so my wife and son can park in front of the coach. it seems that my next door neighbor doesnt like looking at my coach. that being said the city now says that i have to put up a 6 ft fence(for all the good thats going to do concidering that the coach is 11 ft 11 inches high) around the driveway. whta i want to do is really piss him off by hiring a couple of graffiti artists to paint a lifesize rv on the fence. any help that you can come up with i am open to suggestions.

Many people would be grateful that the city would actually make a provision for you to park you MH in the driveway. Actually the 6' fence is going to look tacky enough and that alone will drive your neighbor nuts. Consider yourself lucky and just give up your thoughts of vengeance against you neighbor and go with the flow.
You know that doing what you would like to do will only cause the feud to escalate and the next step will be you tearing down the fence and parking your MH off premise.
You win temporarily, but lose permanently.

Check with your local high school art department. The art kids around here are always painting murals on the local buildings and flood walls.

graffiti artists? What you need is a mural artist! Down here in SC, a lot of small towns, like where I live, they have people who paint wall sized murals on buildings. They would make it look very realistic. Maybe just paint the bottom half of your RV on the fence and let the top of your RV fill in the rest for it's self.

Really freak him out. Just paint the Bottom 6' of the motorhome on the fence and park directly behind it so his view has not changed!

Make the fence chain link and put barb or razor wire at the top.

Johnworth914: I love it!

To the OP: Are you certain that it was your neighbor who called to complain? In our neighborhood it is the realtors who have listings in the area. Just a thought

Get some stencils. Get a M O T O R H O M and E

stencil those all over the fence. Instead of seeing it he can read about it every single day.

be sure to use neon colors!

Sorry that happened to you tho. It must be nasty to be forced to comply and not just be allowed to have something in your own driveway.
I am country. We don't have that problem.

I understand that being your first reaction...wanting to pi$$ him off..think 2 or 3 more times though...right now, if you comply with the city order, you are fine with them..and he won't be satisfied, but will have to live with it..

If you do a mural of an RV, it could end up in a lawsuit where you are judged to be the bad guy, and as someone said...made to park somewhere off your property.

......besides you will save some round number dollars, not having the mural painted.
