Stickers are a powerful and versatile medium for spreading a message. For most of the readers and participants here on this blog that message is their art or their name, but that message could be anything. Here’s a cool story from Reddit user dogefork about how an experience with stickers being stuck to his business lead him to an interesting discovery.

I first came across the art of Eddie Colla when a good friend came back from Oakland with two awesome Occupy slaps in 2012. One was a trippy Guy Fawkes face with the caption ninetyninetoone – the second was an image of a lady with a bandana-covered face and a spray can in her hand with the caption if you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission. I had no idea that the artist behind these designs was Eddie Colla until I came across this sickening article about some huge corporations that have stolen the work of independent designers and merchandised it via apparel, prints, and even stickers. As excited as I am to put a name to these slaps, I’m pretty saddened by the rest of the story.

The web is abuzz with the news that Polaroid Socialmatic will indeed be a reality – slated for arrival in retail stores this fall. Sure the camera lets you share your images directly to the most popular social networking platforms with built-in wifi, but what really caught our eye is that it can also spit out 2″x3″ sticker-backed photos. Soon we will be able to take photos of locations and stick them up right then and there. Stickerception anyone?
It would be interesting to see how these things hold up to the elements – so if you folks at Polaroid are reading this and want to send us one for a full review, we wouldn’t mind

The Museum of The City Of New York looks like it’s gearing up for some sort of kick-ass graffiti exhibition called City As Canvas. They will be displaying works from the collection of graffiti artist/collector Martin Wong. It looks like there will be plenty of mouthwatering art to see, but there is no mention of any sticker work.
City As Canvas – Feb. 4 – Aug. 24, 2014

One of the reasons stickers are so powerfully disruptive is that they allow not only art, but any message to be spread rapidly and cheaply. The Otero County, New Mexico DWI program along with Mothers Against Drunk Driving has an ongoing campaign called “sticker shock” which uses slaps to remind consumers that it is illegal to purchase alcohol for minors.
