Where are you located?
Dundalk/Baltimore Maryland
How long have you been making stickers?
I’ve been making stickers since 2010.
What inspired you to first start producing stickers?
A lot of my friends were into painting, but I always liked the freedom and fun of running around the city putting stickers on signs and poles around all the bars late at night.
What role would you say stickers play within the greater scope of art?
In my opinion, stickers are a more “public” form of art than painting. You can place a much more artistic, beautiful sticker in the middle of a public area where any painter wouldn’t dream of doing a piece. To me stickers are just something fun to entertain not just myself and friends, but regular people just walking around.

I usually use all shapes and sizes of Sharpie paint markers (oil based), but have been getting into crosshatching because of the increased detail for which I use fine sharpie pens (permanent) or something similar. Also, you can coat your stickers in a clear or gloss paint to keep them from fading. I’ve done this in the past but haven’t bothered lately. (more…)
