This project is for our dear friend, Rebecca Anne Mabunay (Sept. 28, 1988 - Nov. 11, 2011), beloved daughter, sister, friend, and artist, who we lost in a DUI accident. Becky and I grew close during our senior year of high school because we took the same art class. In September 2012, a team of her friends organized an art show in honor of her and to celebrate her birthday. It showcased her artwork as well as provided a space for other artists to share their work. I created a painting of Becky based on one of my favoite pictures of her (the same one as the prints) and exhibited it along with some other paintings. The show was a beautiful success and we raised over $1000 that we donated to the San Diego Museum of Art's Teen Art Programs.

These stickers were created at UC Santa Barbara in a beginning printmaking class taught by Professor Alejandro Casazi. These are not digital prints! Using a printmaking technique called linocuts, each sticker was run through a Vandercook printing press and cut by hand.

This project aims to keep Becky's memory alive through street art and social media.
Let’s take some advice from the wise Becky and enjoy the mild thrills… ✌️

Show her some love by following! :) 
Inspiration Peak, Just West of the town called Urbank, Minnesota.
It rises 1,750 feet above sea level, the second highest peak in Northern Minnesota.
Sinclair Lewis who was a prize winning novelist from Minnesota who shared his passion for the peak with his readers. Lewis wrote of Inspiration peak, “there’s to be seen a glorious 20-mile circle of some 50 lakes scattered among fields and pastures, like sequins fallen on an old paisley shawl.” Lewis cherished the “enchanted peace & seclusion of this place for contemplation.”
