New works! Got a large 20″ x 27″ sticker sheet to draw an original piece for the “BRACE YOURSELF” sticker show. Presented by STICKY RICKS in Los Angeles, CA. It’s next week! in the mail as we speak,  here’s a sneaky peak…


When life is victorious, there is birth; when it is thwarted, there is death. A warrior is always engaged in a life-and-death struggle for Peace.
– Morihei Ueshiba

In 2005, Richard & Rosanna Ahrens of Sticky Rick’s and Damon Robinson of Praise the Lowered, made an extraordinary discovery when they decided to create PEEL HERE, an adhesive art exhibition, to kick off the Sticky Rick’s sticker printing company.  They discovered that people from all over the globe of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds are crazy about stickers. Along with this overall love for stickers, there exists a subculture that uses this medium to communicate a language on the urban landscape.  This urban language communicates messages of time, place and people – stickers are personal, mobile, temporary works of art that speak for themselves and are designed to be seen by the masses.

This year we are pleased to share the stage with  Self Help Graphics & Art, whose historical social consciousness through the arts is legendary.  SHG & Art’s recent outreach to local youth through aerosol, silkscreen & hip-hop workshops has become an important conversation amongst community leaders. It’s success is an example of  how to effectively engage youth in the arts and free speech.

“BRACE YOURSELF!” speaks to the condition of our world both locally and globally through the eyes of the artist.  Economists, scientist, and environmentalists have given their warnings about the economy, jobs, healthcare etc.  As responsible individuals we need to peel back the layers of information we are being fed by the media to understand the realities of the condition we are in as a people.  Peel Here owes it to its young participants to persuade them to consider and respond to the pressing dilemmas we are facing in our world today.  Our Open Call submissions will require a response to these realities.

Let’s Get STICKY!!!!!
