I started in October 2013.
bettie page stickerWhat inspired you to first start producing stickers?
I have always been a fan of graffiti and street art. Especially walking around NYC, you would see stickers on almost every corner in all the Burroughs. When I went to NYC Comic Con this year, I had the opportunity to meet Kosbey and Abe Lincoln JR and we talked about the sticker culture. I also met Camden Noir that put together the book, “Label 228 : A Street Art Project”. A collection of 228’s from various artist from all over the world.

I also get inspired just by finding other stickers out there and looking at what other artist are coming up with. (more…)
