10 Questions (And Sticker Giveaway!) with Poster Printing Specialist, AJ Masthay

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.
AJ Masthay is a prolific artist, a world class illustrator and an exceptional old-school printer. It’s hard to fathom how he manages to turn out so many prints, especially considering the means in which he produces his work… You see, AJ’s artwork starts as a pencil drawing, then becomes a linoleum carving (Yes, he carves every color plate with a KNIFE!), before finally being hand printed and seeing the light of day as an extremely high quality, one-of-a-kind edition of art prints. In addition to posters, AJ also loves making silkscreen stickers.. And that’s where we come in!  Note: We are giving away some of AJ’s awesome new Disco Diver Stickers! Leave a comment, Share this post & see details below.  AJ is in a class of his own. We are big fans of his work. So let’s get down to it… 10 Questions with AJ Masthay. Read More

Pen in hand, our friend the esteemed San Diego based artist, illustrator and pencil provocateur, N.C. Winters knows his way around a sheet of paper. N.C. draws a lot. He draws from the early morning, over a cup of dark roasted coffee, until the wee hours of morning when he begrudgingly retires to bed. He scrawls on napkins at restaurants and doodles during re-runs of Bob’s Burgers. He even draws in the shower with some kind of magical waterproof paper, where many of his best ideas come from.. 

Wow, you guys were fast. We’re all out of N.C.’s Stickers. If you missed out, get in touch with N.C. Maybe he’s got a secret stash. Note: We are giving away some of N.C.’s awesome new silkscreen Stickers. (We know they are awesome because we printed them.) Leave a comment and Share this post.

10 Questions +1 with Sticker Artist, Zombie Yeti

 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. 

Zombie Yeti is good at life. An extremely talented illustrator, with an insatiable appetite for learning new skills and furthering his creative chops, ZY’s artwork translates perfectly to the sticker medium, where he has printed dozen of custom sticker designs over the years.

In the graphic design world, Zombie Yeti is the consummate pro and can draw like there’s no tomorrow, which has paved the way to successful working relationships with organizations like Microsoft, Adidas, Harley Davidson,  Beats by Dre, Star Wars, X Games, DC Shoes, and Stern Pinball (Holy Shit. Check out his brand new Ghostbusters Pinball Machine at the end of this post!)

His twisted sensibilities and humorous creative approach seems to work particularly well within the music industry as he continues to turn-out custom, silkscreen gig posters for bands like The Melvins, Primus, Mud Honey, 311, Puscifer, Sublime, and too many more to count.

We could sing his praises for days at least one more paragraph, but instead let’s just ask him some questions..

10 Questions with Sticker Artist, 1000 Styles.

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.

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..

‘Famous Interview Questions’ with UK Artist & Philosopher, Godmachine

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!

godmachine-sticker-interview

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!
