After 7 years, Ray Johnson Fan Club becomes FANCLUB 13

After 7 years, “Ray Johnson Fan Club” becomes “FANCLUB 13”

I worked anonymously under the artist name “Ray Johnson Fan Club” for seven years making street art collages and sending out mail art. But in 2017, I officially changed my Nom d’Artiste to “FANCLUB 13” – still in reference & reverence for Ray.

from a post I made on this day:
“RAYJOHNSONFANCLUB becomes FANCLUB13. “Today is January Friday the 13th. Exactly 21 years after Ray Johnson dyed himself dead. In his honor I’m watching “How to Draw a Bunny” again, and I am officially changing my nom d’artiste to: FANCLUB13. I will continue to update my sites with the work I have already completed before today as #rayjohnsonfanclub. But henceforth I will work only under the name #FANCLUB13 and you can eventually see all my future work @fanclub.13 or  http://www.fanclub13.com.

FC13 sticker # 87
my very first collage using the artist name “FANCLUB 13”

FC13 sticker # 87

this blue, Hello My Name Is sticker was made using trash from the streets on 1/13/17 while sitting at Black Crow Coffee at 722 2nd St N. in Old Northeast St. Pete.

i was still struggling with how to make the imprint and just used a stencil. Was considering making the stickers with the large “PAY NO ATTENTION” but later decided to make the imprints the same for the stickers as they are for the “relationships.”

It was stuckup the same night on the back of a stop sign on 7th Street N. beside the Morean Arts Center.
