Collaboration with Philly artist @faithsfunnn on one of her custom painted “sticker blanks.”
It was made on a (March 2016) Priority Label 228 with trash from the streets, on 4/28/17 while sitting at Starbucks on SR 60 at Belcher in Clearwater, Florida.
It was given to one of my favorite artists, Remi Rough in Dulwich, UK during a visit to his studio on 10/25/17. I gave it to him along with a pile of blank USPS label 228s and one of my first Zine publications (B 20/100). He was kind enough to sell me one of his prints while I was there.
RJFC sticker # 79 was a collaboration with Chaos & Bliss on a USPS Priority Mail “bluetop” label 228 from 2000. It was made on 4/26/16 while sitting at the Carroll Street Cafe in Cabbagetown Atlanta.
It was stuck up the same day in a mini Labeauratoire Sticker Bomb along with GATS, NeverFart, Whups, Artissin, & c0rpse, on an electrical box along Carroll Street beside the Milltown Arms tavern. Also, already on the box were Hosea has a Posse, Maple, Skarz, & more.
Back in April of 2016 I had the opportunity to make a quick trip to Denver, Colorado for the first time. We stayed on East Colfax Ave, near N.Downing St. I sat several times at (what was then) the Sanora Cafe to work on my collages with trash found on the streets of Denver.
I also began my first Urban Price Tags here. Made and left four of them in Denver. I need to revisit this fun project soon. These little red price tags are “numbered” in a random fashion depending on what numbers I discover in my found objects. They could be a dollar or euro amount, a percentage, or just any kind of number.
Urban Price Tag no. 500 was made on 4/9/16 with trash from the streets of Denver. I made my first two while sitting at the Sanora Cafe on E. Colfax Ave.
It was left 4/9/16 on a stop sign on Broadway at 25th Street across from Silverstate Lofts (see top photo)
Urban Price Tag no. 303 was also made on 4/9/16 while sitting at the Sanora Cafe on E. Colfax Ave.
It was left 4/9/16 on a fence in the graffiti alley between Larimer Street & Walnut Street, between 29th & 28th St. (above)
Urban Price Tags no. 560 & no. 10 were also made on 4/9/16 while sitting at the Sanora Cafe on E. Colfax Ave.
Urban Price Tag no. 560 was left on a street sign in front of the Colonnade Lofts at 1210 E. Colfax Ave. on 4/11/16.
Urban Price Tag no. 10 was left on a stairway handrail post in the Denver Art Museum on on 4/10/16.
I made two stickers and one “relationship” piece while in Denver: stickers # 77 & #78, and Relationship CXIX. But I also left some stickers I’d previously made, and brought with me.
Sticker # 68 (above) was made back in Tampa Bay on a CD label on 12/14/15. I stuck it on a cool “Route 40” green bike rack in front of the Sanora Cafe on East Colfax at Marion St. on 4/11/16. (below)
RJFC sticker # 76 was made on a small rectangular sticker using trash from the streets. I made it while sitting at a Starbucks in Pinellas Park, Fl, in The Shoppes at Park Place on 1/23/16. It was left on a lightpost outside the old 14th St. staff entrance to the Denver Art Museum on Sunday, 4/10/16. (below)
RJFC sticker # 77 (above) was made with trash from the streets of Denver on a 2013 USPS Priority Mail Label 228, while sitting at the Sanora Cafe on East Colfax at Marion St. on 4/9/16.
I left it the same day in a Labeauratoire Sticker Bomb (below) on a trash dumpster in the graffiti alley between Larimer Street & Walnut Street, between 29th & 28th St. along with work by Mimi le Clown, dwkrsna, C0rpse, Neverfart, Sara Conti, GATS, Artissin, JPO, Obey, Kryptc, CistOnes, SoreInfest, Jacuzzi & more…
And finally, my larger collage, Relationship CXIX – (THE BLOODY BARBER HIT MY fantastic PONYTAIL COACH) was also made on 4/11/16 while sitting at the Sanora Cafe.
It was made on a vintage album cover using trash found on the streets of Denver (above).
Relationship CXIX was left on 4/11/16 on an electrical box at the corner of East Colfax Avenue and North Lafayette Street, near Ice Cream Riot.
So altogether I left nine collage street art pieces on this trip to Denver. I also discovered some fantastic artists while there. Hope to visit again sometime..
RJFC sticker # 74 was completed by me on a Priority Mail Label 228 on 1/20/16 while sitting at Starbucks on 4th Street in St. Petersburg, FL.
It was sent to fellow collage & mail artist RF Côté in Quebec, Canada around 3/31/16 along with sticker # 67, & Relationships CXIV & CXV.
RF Côté added his part of the collaboration (seen above) around 4/17/16 including the Hannah Hoch Fan Club stamps.
He then put the sticker up about 4/19/16 on a Bicycle Route sign near the intersection of Boulevard Jacques – Cartier & Avenue de la Gare, in Sainte-Flavie, Quebec, Canada.
RJFC sticker # 73 was completed using a large, 1999 vintage, blue-top, Priority Mail label 228, on December 29, 2015 while sitting at (what used to be Joffrey’s Coffee shop at the corner of 15th Street & E. 8th Avenue in Ybor City (Tampa), Florida.
