Available today at a random moment in time is Shepard Fairey’s latest print, Sticker Kit. It’s a very informative print, even giving you the stats of running your own small time magazine, Peel, which is who the profits of this print will go to.
“Dave and Holly Combs are wonderful people as well as the founders of PEEL Zine. They took the risk of following their artistic passion and have paid the price of losing their home. I created this print with and for them to raise money to help with their huge debt. PEEL has helped to support and grow the street art community and I believe they deserve to have the favor returned. Profits from this print go to help the Combs family. Please help out.”

Available this Wednesday through Iconoclast Editions is the third variation of Shepard Fairey’s soupcan.
