Some singles trickled in recently. My bud Mark saw this one in Asheville, NC. Saw this one from DC Indymedia's recent protest coverage. And Pure Evil dropped off a fresh one.

01/21/2007 Stencil Archive Updates

Just passed the 6300 mark for online photos. Here's the latest batch for you all to enjoy.

Two years ago, Ron Deutsch submitted a batch of great photos from his travels in Argentina and Uruguay. I asked him to tell me which were which, but he never got back to me. So the photos sat in my "backlog" folder. I decided to post them anyway, so made a special archive for them in the Americas Artists archive.

My good bud Mark passed along four postcards from France that he bought in the late 1980s. He had them in a box for years, so here's a sliver of early stencils from Paris.

Cricket from Arizona sent over some original stencils and gets an archive.

Koleszar dropped off a few more amazing originals.

Got sets and singles from Northern California, Black Rock City, NV, Philadelphia, and Oregon.

Still uploading the New York City photos I took last year.

Finally, a batch from my hood on Valencia Street.


Update from Janet BikeGirl

Hi Russell

I am not sure if you will remember a call for art, from last March, which you had put on Stencil Archive, for a book called 99 Silhouettes, by Debut Publications in the UK.

Well the good news! One of my submissions was accepted! The book comes out next month. It is my VELO stencil, which will be in the book.

You can put the news on Stencil Archive ,
here is the link

Happy New Year !
I hope that you have been well.
Everything about the same up here, just working on new stencil designs.

Thanks Janet
