Hey guys... I was working on some trades and I thought... all of this is great and addicting but in the end... what am I doing with this? I do graff because it's my passion. And I trade stickers because I love seeing different artists work around me / inspiring me.
But so what?
And at that moment, I happened to see on my friend's facebook status about her volunteering for cancer research. She's a nurse here in California. This gave me an idea.
Ask artists and companies around me and around the world to trade or even better, DONATE their stickers and sell these packs to people who would be willing to help this charity. I made a quick video of my idea...
I kinda rambled on... But now my idea has become more refined and I targeted some companies to help as well. You guys are the beast-machine of stickerminions so I'm asking you guys to help me as well.
I am working at max speed to make some new stickers myself so I need all the help I can get.
You might be wondering why the hell stickers and why cancer? Easy. Street art, graff art, whatever you want to call it... is meant to be shared. And as street artists, we get such a bad rep., every where we go and society forgets that we're all different and we actually give a f@#$.
Cancer affects us all (friends, family, loved ones). I lost my grandpa to cancer. We lost DARE to cancer. It happens... why not put money in the hands of people who can do something about it and stickers in the hands of people who will truly appreciate them?
I've emailed every artist I could think of, but OBVIOUSLY you guys know way more. I could use your help AND any artists you might know.
I got several artists from all around the world to already help me out. From South Africa, Japan, UK and right here in the US. I need you guys to help me out even more.
I spoke with several companies I have ties with or I've been a loyal customer of and they've pretty much gave me the thumbs up. This includes: James from Oink Art LTD, CreWest, and Rogue Status / DTA... hopefully they make good on their promises.
So please PM me if you're serious about sending me some stickers, even a few... and i'll make sure your name is listed in the contributing artists, and I'll even try my best to send you some back, in time!
