How long have you been making stickers?
I’m into stickers since 2010, so about 4 years.
What inspired you to first start producing stickers?
Walking in the streets and seeing graffiti really had a great impact on me. When I saw people doing stickers I tried it out with some adhesive paper and an Edding pen, since then I haven’t stopped producing stickers.
eiros stickerMaterials:
Mostly I use thermal UPS sheets and PostNL labels from the post office here in The Netherlands, but to me every adhesive sheet of paper is good enough to be pieced on. Markers I would say: Copic, Molotow, Posca, Sharpie and cheap markers. (more…)

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.

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…)

gerk stickersWhat role do stickers play in art?
Stickers are good for getting a detailed piece of your work up fast. I draw up bombs much more detailed on a sticker than I normally would in the streets with a can. Even though it’s not weather resistant, it’s more colorful and better looking while it lasts. Besides that, it’s a great way to swap art with writers instead of mailing blackbooks back and forth.
