Artist Profile: Meerkat

meerkat stickerName:
How long have you been making stickers?
just about 2 weeks I think. maybe three….
meerkat stickerWhat inspired you to first start producing stickers?
Hella reasons, free canvas, being bored, pretty good promotion tool for social media.
What role would you say stickers play within the greater scope of art?
Most people’s perception or definition of what art is varies so dramatically. Its hard to say.
meerkat stickerMaterials:
Mainly 228’s and Sharpie and highlighters.
What are some of your favorite places to put up slaps?
I mostly just collect them for the black book. Gotta catch em all.
What other artists inspire you? 
Anyone doing something different. So many people are doing the same stickers over and over again.
meerkat stickerIf you had to guess, how many stickers have you produced to date?
I’m at right around a hundred. I’ve recently been putting in a lot more time and detail into my stickers and characters so it slows me down.
Is stickering about quantity or quality?
Quality all the way. Collecting is about finding the rare gems.
Do you collect and/or trade slaps with other artists?
Selectively. Not a huge fan of printed stickers or tags and handstyles.
meerkat stickerDo you have a message that you are trying to convey with your slaps?
Not really. I just want to make quality stickers that people want or take notice of. I wanna be the rawest wizard in the sticker game.
What do you want people to take away from seeing one of your designs in the wild?
I guess it’s just cool to know that somewhere in the world someone is seeing my artwork, even if it’s just for a second walking by on the street.
