Fun With Stickerz!

On his bike my friend Stephen has been sporting a simple declarative sticker given to him by a fellow rider that grows more awesome with each new gas-price increase and thus is something I’ve been coveting of late. But in this day and internest age why waaaaaaaaaait around hoping for a handout when you can crack open photoshop or some similar program, upload the file to any of several makeyerownstuffdotcoms, and voila!

So in photoshop I mimicked what I’d seen on Stephen’s bike, then I visited cafepress.com a few days ago, blew the dust off my dormant account and rustled me up batch o’ these (which arrived yesterday):

While they last I’ll be packing them with me on my various group and solo ridings around town so if you see me give me a shout and I’ll hook you up if I have one. Or boy howdy: go make some for yerself!

UPDATED (12.28): Better yet, support a fellow cyclist/creative type by getting some directly from the guy I just learned is the OG in the triple-zero sticker realm. He goes by the nom du net of Jonny5 and has a pretty serious grudge against goats, but he sells some sweet sticker action at www.zeropergallon.com.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
