FC13 sticker # 88
my 2nd sticker using the artist name “FANCLUB 13” and the first one with the same “PAY NO ATTENTION TO” & “FANCLUB 13” stamps, like the relationships have. All future ones will carry these stamps as well.
This sticker was made on a CD label, using trash from the streets on 2/14/17 while sitting at Starbucks on SR 60 at Belcher in Clearwater, Florida.
It was mailed to Street Art Photographer Jackie Hadel in Cocoa, FL, just before her trip to Beirut in 2017.
I took the opportunity to head down to Miami again for Art Week in December of 2016. I literally got blisters on my feet from walking so much. I managed to meet many great artists and see a lot of inspiring work. Only put up 3 pieces on this visit but I was pretty happy with them.

This, my 121st “relationship” collage was completed on 12/4/16. I used a base of the album cover “Wunderlich Pops 2.”

I left it the morning of 12/4/16 on a wall outside the Lulu Laboratorium on NE 23rd Street at the intersection of NW 1st Place, right beside a SacSix piece of Oprah Winfrey. This was about 2 blocks from Wynwood Walls, and just a block away from Panther Coffee, where I was meeting Colorado artist Frank Kwiatkowski an hour later.
My 120th “relationship” collage was made for the exhibition Keep St. Pete Weird, at Davidson Fine Art in the Central Edge district of St. Petersburg, Florida.

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.

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..
