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.
John Watson is an adamant cyclist, a prolific photographer and a successful blogger. Oh, and John Watson loves Stickers…
John’s website, ProllyisnotProbably, where he creates and shares (really good) original cycling related content, was started in 2006 in Brooklyn and covers a multitude of facets from cycling culture, including lifestyle, music, video and product reviews.
John typically prints clear vinyl stickers, which once applied, tend to work seamlessly on toptubes, downtubes, seatposts, basically anywhere there’s space on a bike frame, as you will see below.
OK, Let’s get down to it. 10 Questions with John Watson.
