‘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!

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!

10 Questions with Silkscreen Poster and Sticker Artist, Marq Spusta

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.

custom sticker interview

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.

10 Questions with Illustrator, Iconographer and Sticker Maker, David Lanham

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.

We first became aware of David Lanham‘s work through a series of excellent Icons that adorned our computer desktops, long before we ever knew who made them.

Years later, when David placed his first sticker order for clear vinyl stickers, we put two and two together and placed the name to the artist and fell in love with his fun, colorful and highly imaginative stickers. Naturally it was only a matter of time before we sat down and asked David Lanham to Answer 10 Questions..
