Six years in, and the Stencil Archives just keep growing. As it turned out during the upload today, Cricket in AZ, shot by Moe Beitiks, had an upload that put the Archives at exactly 11,000! Hard to believe that they were at 8,000 when I started on Stencil Nation earlier this year.
Thanks again to all of the artists, photographers, and fans who keep sending me great works from around the world. I know I can't keep up with the likes of Flickr (322,000 "stencil" flicks there), but I'll keep posting as long as I keep finding and getting images.

Props to Crystal for the tip
Last year Marc Schiller wrote a blog for his site WoosterCollective.com called "The Banksy Effect," in which he addresses the abrupt and remarkable changes that were taking hold in the London street-art scene. To Schiller, it appeared that after five years of just barely inching along, the market for street art in galleries had suddenly hit the roof, and the kinds of pieces that had gone unsold for years prior were selling at an insane rate and even crazier prices. Schiller could think to chalk it up to only one thing, or man, rather: Banksy, the Bristol-born stencil artist whose work went from streetscapes to auction house must-haves in a hot second, and who was fast becoming a major figure in the fine-art world.
"Soon after we published the blog, "Space Girl and Bird," a Banksy stencil created for a Blur CD cover sold at Bonhams auction house in London for $575,000 -- 20 times the estimate, making it the most expensive BANKSY ever sold at that time.
Back then, my thinking was that everyone was benefiting from this "Banksy Effect" -- artists, gallerists and collectors alike. But now things are a lot less clear. Still fueled largely by London-based buyers, the market for street art has in many ways become completely irrational.
The past few weeks has been a whirlwind of promotions here at the SC SN HQ. The Southeast dates proved to be a bit harder to pin down times and dates, but I think I finally have the whole tour schedule worked out (with a few starting times still lingering). The Northeast November leg is good to go, and the word is out online and in print. Just bought my ticket to Boston via SF and will probably buy my Amtrak ticket from DC to Charleston, SC soon. Wish the bus/train system was good down here in the Southeast. Will be in the car for that leg of the tour. What's brewing in the distant future? Well, if capitalism doesn't completely fail by January, I'll either do
a California tour or a brief visit to Europe. Stay tuned for more details!
November in the Northeast

Cut and Paint stencil template zine #2
Buy it Here
Cut and Paint stencil template zine #2 is now available! The overwhelming demand for Cut and Paint #1 has encouraged us to more than double the print run. This time around we traded in the headaches of attempting to scam double-sided 11x17 photocopies for the impeccable offset printing provided by Eberhardt Press - an anarchist printer in Portland, Oregon.
