We came across the sticker art of 1000 Styles via Instagram a few years ago & were instantly drawn in by his menacing, textural creations.
1000 Styles draws on pilfered USPS labels and makes unique, one-of-a-kind stickers. He uses silkscreen sticker printing to mass produce his characters onto thousands of vinyl stickers and one thing is certain… He never stops drawing. Needless to say, we sat down with 1000 Styles and asked him some questions..

From Steve, “This was a WIP from awhile back that I recently revisited to experiment with both Keyshot rendering and Substance Painter maps rendered inside Marmoset Toolbag.”
Some call him the Vin Diesel of Adobe Illustrator. Others call him the Terence Trent D’Arby of Vector, but most people call him by his real name Hydro74. Regardless of what you call him, this guy’s got serious skills with a mouse and he can point and click with the best of them.

Sometimes Travis and Jay eat burgers together and draw on napkins. Their new print is the culmination of such creative dining excursions.
Along with said screen print, we silkscreened some delectable clear vinyl stickers to accompany their poster release. And we’re giving away all the extras we managed to get our hands on. Details after the jump.
Hello. My name is ZombieYeti and I was tasked with coming up with a new and exciting blog series for Stickerobot.com. As many of you know (hi mom!), I’m probably better served drawing things than communicating with word sentences. So with that in mind, I came up with a great unoriginal idea that I could use to reach out to artists that I love and respect – Artist interviews!
Home-run, right? But then I realized I’d need to come up with questions, and upon attempting this, I found that I could only come up with questions I’d heard in previous interviews… and THAT’S when it hit me!
I’d make other more qualified interviewers do my work! So…. I scoured the inter-web for famous (and questionably famous) interviews from the past 100 years and I took questions from these interviews and created a randomly generated list that I then sent out to various artists that may or may not return my emails!
On a regular basis we’ll ask a new sticker artist a series of 10 questions. To keep things simple and to engage in a deeply philosophical, long term case study of the scientifically complicated “Sticker Artist’s mind,” we’ve decided to leave the questions the same every week.
This week, we sat down with the highly talented California-based silkscreen artist, Marq Spusta.
Marq makes wildly colorful and intricate screen printed gig posters and art prints. He also makes album covers, rad T-shirts, buttons, magnets and custom stickers. Most of his work is limited edition and gets snatched up in a hurry by his rabid, adoring fans..
Over the years, we have worked with Marq on a few projects, including some Primus posters, Tshirts, and of course thousands of very unique custom silkscreen stickers. So let’s get down to it… 10 Questions with Marq Spusta.
Note: We are giving away some of Marq’s brand new Sticker Packs to (3) random commenters. Simply share this post & leave a comment below to enter.
Here at Sticker Robot, we love the art of silkscreen. We love it so much that we built a business around it. Yep, Printing silkscreen stickers.
Silkscreen printing is an ancient technique, started in China thousands of years ago and we employ it everyday. The print medium takes lots of time and effort, but there’s no denying the extreme level of quality when you hold a silkscreen print (or sticker) in your hands… The thick ink, the textural feel of the material, even the smell of the print itself.
Like a fine wine or a custom cobbled pair of dancing shoes, once you’ve experienced it, it’s hard to go back to drinking ripple from a box and wearing crocs to the ballroom.
A while ago, we posted a feature on 10 Sticker Artists To Follow on Instagram. It was highly adhesive. Sometime thereafter, we made another blog post called, 10 Visual Artists You Should Be Following on Instagram which shared links to some great working artists.
This time, because of our affinity for the craft, we’re putting together a list (in no particular order) of 10 Silkscreen Poster Artists You Should Be Following on Instagram.
So, you read the title and have obviously clicked to read my inner most thoughts on the Wacom (pronounced: “W”- “æ/ə/eɪ/o/” -“com”)* Cintiq Companion 2.
Either that, or my racy meta tags tricked your favorite search engine into a stop off in Dissapointmentville®. Either way, here we are. So let’s talk about the new portable Wacom Cintiq Companion 2.
First, Some Confessions…
Confession I: I love technology. Even the questionable stuff.
Confession II: I am platform agnostic. I don’t dismiss options based on personal preferences.
Confession III: As a result, I don’t think Microsoft is the pc devil.
Confession IV: I once stole a caramel from the supermarket and lived with that guilt for years.
I make those confessions so you know that as a designer, I’m not laying naked with my Apple products while thumbing my nose at the perceived ‘corporate greed/band-wagon-hate-train’ of Microsoft. (The irony being quite palpable in the era of iterative iDevices, not withstanding.)
And my last preface, is that if you really wished this product was BOTH cheaper and ran Yosemite, you might want to think long and hard about what you just said before that premium-priced-paradox creates a rift in the space/time continuum worthy of causing the Enterprise-D to encounter the long missing USS Enterprise-C!**
It should come as no surprise by now that we are huge fans of Jose Pulido and his calavera series of pop culture characters. And we must confess that we are also huge fans of how he’s using kickstarter for good instead of evil!
I mean, at this point we should really just hand him the keys to the blog and let him post these himself. But, as professional sticker blogmen*, we really can’t do that because all of our passwords are saved in our browsers and we can’t really remember them, soooo…
