Transcript of Graffiti Moon
Journal Entry 1
In the opening of Graffiti moon Lucy (the main female character) is searching for the mysterious Shadow, a graffiti artist that paints in the dark, that she believes is someone she could truly fall for. Ed (the Shadow) is introduced to us while spray painting a brick wall. He is accompanied by Leo who is known as the Poet. (He writes the words on Ed's art.)
At this point in the story it seems as though the theme is teenage romance.
'A guy who paints things like that is a guy who I could fall for. Really fall for.'
This quote is relevant to the themes as it shows teenage romance
Journal Entry 2
Lucy goes out with her friends Jazz and Daisy after working with Al (an artist that teaches her.) Ed is there and Lucy feels that it's awkward because she broke his nose while on a date and he hasn't talked to her since. Little does she know, what she's looking for is right in front of her. Leo is also there, trying to end up with Jazz. They end up going on a hunt for Shadow due to Dylan (Daisy's soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend) mentions that he knows Shadow and Poet in an attempt to please Daisy. This annoys Ed as he doesn't want his cover as the Shadow blown, but they set off to a party where Dylan heard Shadow was.
The main themes in these chapters seem to be teenage romance and quest.
' "Are all girls called Lucy nose breakers?" '
This quote is said by Ed, reminiscing about their first date.

Lucy, Ed, Jazz, Leo, Daisy and Dylan arrive at the party, which is wild. Lucy and Ed end up leaving to 'look' for Shadow. Before leaving Lucy meets a boy named Malcolm Dove (who Leo owes money to.), who she thinks could potentially be Shadow. Lucy tells him where they are going in the hope that he is Shadow. Lucy and Ed travel to places where Shadow has painted. Lucy is surprised about how much Ed knows about art and finds herself not finding it awkward to talk to him after all.
The themes in these chapters are teenage romance, quest and first love.
'I paint so the fast-moving fear stops. I paint to close those doors.'
This quote is Ed thinking about why he likes to paint, not for the fear that it creates, but to stop the fear.

Ed and Lucy continue looking at Ed's work, Lucy still oblivious. Ed contemplates telling Lucy about him being Shadow, as Bert (his old boss at the paint store where he worked) always told him to be honest with girls. Ed reminisces about his paintings. They look at a painting that he did after Beth (Ed's old girlfriend) left him. It is of a ghost in a jar. Lucy is intrigued with the work and hopeful that one day she will meet Shadow as she thinks that he makes everything better by just painting.
Teenage romance, quest and Lucy's disparity to find Shadow.
' I stand behind her, watching her watching my work.'
This is relevant to these chapters as it shows that Lucy is still oblivious to the fact that Ed is Shadow. Also in it's context this quote hints that Ed starts to develop feelings for Lucy.

Leo has a van in which they are using for the robbery and drives over with Jazz, Dylan and Daisy to get Ed and Lucy. Ed doesn't agree with that idea as he doesn't want any one to think the girls are connected with the robbery if they get caught. Ed and Lucy walk up to the top of the hill (the one they fell down on the bike.) Lucy confronts ed about his lying and asks if there's anything else he has to say. he contemplates telling her about him being Shadow but the words don't come out. Lucy and Ed talk about art while walking up the hill. Malcolm Dove suddenly appears and asks Ed to 'pass' on a message.
