Re: My "Send Wonder" campaign starts today!

Hiya David! Thanks for that! Someone must have read this post as they sent me an e-mail regarding this artist today. I hadn't heard of him but that's supercool. I love all street art and am a huge fan of Shepard Fairey, Banksy, etc. I think every one of them is Sending Wonder in their own way. ~jamie
