Dave and Holly Combs are wonderful people as well as the founders of PEEL Zine. They took the risk of following their artistic passion and have paid the price of losing their home. I created this print with and for them to raise money to help with their huge debt. PEEL has helped to support and grow the street art community and I believe they deserve to have the favor returned. Profits from this print go to help the Combs family. Please help out.
The Sticker Kit Print will so on sale 10/6 at a Random Time, Limit 1. Edition of 450, 18×24, S/N, $50* (We are raising the price slightly to help give The Combs a little more of a helping hand.
