This year marks Upper Playground’s 10th Anniversary. Indeed, something to be proud of.  They’re beating the drum by giving away a whole bunch of stuff I’d love to get my hands on—like this Sam Flores painting (dimensions are 6 feet by 4 feet and the medium is acrylic and spray paint on wood framed canvas), “Flores y Zorro.” It’s valued at over $10,000. The painting is signed by Sam Flores. All you have to do is register your email—check the top right corner of Upper Playground.

If you’re already signed up, then you are already entered. Simple shit. The contest is open for 2 weeks and a winner will be announced on Thursday, February 12th.

Even if you don’t win this 10K painting, Sam Flores, in the spirit of thanking his fans, also created a series of 200 small illustrations and is offering them at a very affordable price. The drawings are framed and are on sale now only at the San Francisco Upper Playground store. The figurative drawings give a glimpse into how Sam develops his characters and pieces and are not only unique, but are affordable. Make the jump to check them out.
