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. Soon after the Comic Convention I wanted to see if I could make a few of my own stickers. I’m still getting the hang of it and experimenting with different mediums. I also get inspired just by finding other stickers out there and looking at what other artist are coming up with. (more…)

I’ve been doing slaps for about 3 years.

nero3 stickerWhat role would you say stickers play within the greater scope of art?
To me stickers play an important role in the graf game because it is a faster way to get up. I’m mostly into blackbooks so my goal is to have a slap in as many books possible.
Materials:
I use USPS and normal blank page stickers. I use Chartpak markers gel pens and a variety of paint markers. (more…)

thatredkid stickerWhat inspired you to first start producing stickers?
Truthfully, my friend that was killed in a car crash. He wasn’t one of my best friends, but if he were still around today he would be. He first introduced me to stickers in my freshman art class and he had so much potential as an artist and was just one of the coolest kids I ever knew. So I will always be making stickers as a tribute to him and all the influence he gave me. (more…)
