Ninja give-away

Something new- Ive decided to do a giveaway the first Friday of every month- starting today. I will let this one go until the next Friday. I will randomly select 5 commenters who comment on this post, and send them 5 of these sweet ninja stickers. Tell your friends, maybe if they win they will share a sticker or two with you! If you dont win, there is always next month! Make sure you add an e-mail so I have a way to contact the winners.


A funny story about these stickers. I originally printed a lot of these stickers with the idea of getting in on the street art scene and get some exposure. On myspace I saw all of these "slap" artists getting some good exposure and I came in on the scene as "Sticker-Ninja" -I started slapping these stickers all over town, and trading with people all over the world! It was pretty
fun & intense . Right when I started to get some good exposure and trade with some big-heads in the sticker slapping arena I got a knock on my apartment door. It was my city sheriff... he asked if I was the "Sticker Ninja" ......I put my head down and said it.... "Yes.... yes I am"
He was actually very nice and sat down and chatted with me for a while. He told me I could get fined for each sticker he found and that I could have that put on a criminal record as graffiti. He let me off with a warning and on his way out the door, he asked if he could have some stickers for his kids. I gave him a stack and off he went (I noticed that he had one of my stickers that he had pulled off a sign on his notepad!) -It was fun while it lasted but that surprise visit scared me enough to seek exposure as an artist in different areas (Such as this blog!) -I had a lot of fun with it though and even participated an art show for street artists in California through the street artist Nomad. Enough jibber-jabber.... post a comment and enter to win some of these things :P

I just noticed nobody has left an e-mail or way to contact them. This will make it hard to win the stickers ;)

It would have been a better story if you got thrown into jail and then had to fight against 50 black guys just to keep these stickers that you're giving out. but i guess it was a cool story.
