How long have you been making stickers on ukrainian dating sites?
August 2013
What inspired you to first start producing stickers?
I thought it was a creative way to advertise, but later on I realized it was more of an art form. Designing & creating stickers really caught my attention.
roman one stickerMaterials:
Adobe Photoshop all the way. Occasionally I draw out my characters or tags and photograph them and then upload them into Photoshop. For home printing of stickers I use a Brother 2240 laser printer with matte blank sticker paper. To get the gloss on them I use packaging tape!
What are some of your favorite places to put up slaps?
Tunnels, somewhere high , or messed up signs .
What is the longest one of your slaps has survived in the wild?
About 4 months I’d say . Some of my baby face stickers are up a lot. a few of my snowflake ones as well.
roman one stickerHave you ever had any run-ins with the law due to your stickering?
I try to keep my stickers small, so no.
Have you ever had a funny/unusual experience related to stickering?
Always being on the lookout for property owners or cops!! Haha it’s like I’m a tweaker looking around sometimes .
How many stickers have you produced to date?
4000-7000 all different sizes mostly 2×2 or smaller.
roman one stickerIs stickering about quantity or quality?
Location & quality is what it’s about, nobody wants to see the same boring sticker over and over all over the city in my opinion, change it up!!
Do you collect and/or trade slaps with other artists?
I’m starting to , but I prefer handing them out so other people can put them up.
Do you have a message that you are trying to convey with your slaps?
It really is just my persona in the streets, it’s like having an image of you so people would recognize you or at least feel your presence.
