"Polar Bear Stickers"

Perhaps a bit too much of a hyper-local target audience for this one, but on the other hand, that's a peculiar + particular point of pride in my panels - the ability to occasionally cater to the local audience is one of the hallmarks of regional-specific humor that is the first to go when relative fame begins to water down what makes anything special. Catering to the lowest common denominator effectively neuters the initial appeal of a feature that has any sense of place.

Which here, specifically, is the absolutely delightful experience of parking on UAF campus. As an adunct, part-time, I pay half the annual cost, which is around $130 for anywhere on campus - excepting the exclusive "Gold Lots" is anywhere close to a building. Quite the racket - but those tickets aren't cheap to write.

I had originally planned on just using a snapshot of my own Subaru which is sporting a number of theses stickers. But at the last minute I just so happened to run across a fellow artist (hat-tip Alyssa Enriquez) on campus with an even more impressive array. Collect 'em all!
