It's strange, but what i don't understand most is why it is drawn mostly by boys. Maybe it is something attractive and easy to be drawn, but i don't get how these students have this ''connection'', to put it in simple terms. On the contrary though it might just be a coincidence from the many that are made every day....dunno what to say!!!

It was WAY different in my school. Mostly girls drew it. If a boy drew it, they were made fun of for being like the girls.

Drawn by boys in one school, drawn by girls in another school. Maybe it's unisex :P
Lol, just kidding. Maybe it's kind of easy to draw something like this and it comes out naturally...

I was taught to draw that symbol by placing a row of three vertical lines above another row of three vertical lines and then putting in a few diagonal lines to make the S.

champions elect? Aren't you 4th lol. My sky blues are going well. Might be seeing you at Wembley soon!

Swindon Town are third and they are just two points off top spot, which is currently occupied by Tranmere Rovers.  In my view, anybody in the top four or five could win it.  Coventry City are seven points behind Swindon in eighth place having played one game more.

However your in a better position than Portsmouth and Hartlepool United.

Swindon play the Monkey Hangers on Saturday.  It should be a certain three points for you.  And if Walsall beat Doncaster Rovers and Leyton Orient beat Tranmere you will go top.

It's supposed to be a grade-school kids interpretation of "graffiti." Don't worry, it's just something to doodle that's quick and easy.

But the mystery is it's origin.   It seems like children all over the planet doodle this, but no one can pinpoint when or where it started.  It's a mystery!

I think trying to explain it would be like trying to explain any kind of fancy graffiti letter. Just someone who thought it looked cool and decided to spray it somewhere same can be said for all graffiti letters

I don't remember who taught me to draw it but it made me feel like I was a good artist who knew the S secret. This was circa 1995.

I think you are reading too much into this!
I've never seen it before, but I can see it's something cool-looking and not too difficult to draw.
I wonder how many kids doodle the Coca-Cola or Nike logos.

I believe the Nazi's were know as the "SS." Hitler and his top men were big time into the occult.

Hi,

It is a graffiti 'S', it is part of a style that is very easy for beginners learning graffiti:-
