What the heck is Guerilla Notebook Art?

In the summer of 1995 a passion for office supplies and an obsession for cheap pencil case stencils came together into Guerilla Notebook Art.

Think of these as propaganda posters from a high school revolutionary, stencilled onto sheets of lined paper or etched into the back page of a civics textbook.

The use of stencils limits the vocabulary to a few simple icons, these icons are recombined to sugguest multiple meanings. The anvil can symbolize both strength in the face of adversity and imminent destruction from above.

The targets of this pencil-case revolution are common foes from adolescent experience; repressed anger, sexual frustration and authority of any kind.
