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..

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.

Our old friends Dave and Holly Combs, the couple behind Sticker Culture magazine, PeelZine were recently interviewed by The Huffington Post, along side world famous typographic engineer Vincent Connare (the inventor of the ubiquitous and globally despised Comic Sans font face) about their ongoing sticker campaign entitled “Ban Comic Sans!”
Years ago, the couple who considered the Comic Sans Font to be a blight on the landscape of typography, prompted them to create a series of Ban Comics Sans Stickers which over the past several years, have been plastered all over the planet.
Here’s a link to the Story on Huff Post. Make sure to watch the video as well. It’s great.
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!
Warning: If you are easily offended by a clown with semi-exposed nipples and beautifully composed oil paintings of scantily-clad blue aliens by world famous artists, stop reading now. If neither of these topics are cause for your moral concern… Please, read on.
Currently France is involved in an online censorship lawsuit with Facebook, involving a 149-year-old painting of a vagina by Gustave Courbet, a School Teacher’s subsequent suspension from Facebook, and a Social Media Empire that can not distinguish Pornography from Art.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, a sticker image that we posted to our Facebook page resulted in a similar suspension.
Granted, a priceless century-and-a-half old painting vs. a custom sticker for a local T-shirt company might not fit into the same argument, but none the less, here’s a short story about sticker printing, sharing photos of clown nipples & social media censorship..
Exhibit A. The Offending Adhesive Contraband.
As you all may know, Sticker Robot Stickers are, quite literally, the highest quality stickers on the planet. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to know that we take our sticker quality very seriously and always strive for self-imposed sticker printing excellence.
Periodically, we even enlist the help of third parties to make sure that we’re not blinded by our own sticker pride.
This year, we’d like to get the help of some of our customers & fans. We’re putting the call out to our blogger and vlogger friends, throughout the planet, to help us keep our sticker quality amazing.
If you are interested in receiving a free sticker pack in exchange for providing feedback on the quality of our stickers in the form of a review or an interview on your blog/channel, please get in touch with our resident robot QA Dave.
Please send an email with your name, your blog or channel website address to [email protected] and Dave will pick a set of submissions that accurately represent our legion to send out a worthy sample sticker pack for you to enjoy, stick and marvel at the glory of our world famous silkscreen stickers.
What’s more, the chosen ones will of course get to keep their stickers (as long as you send us some photos of the stickers in action) and as a special thanks, we’ll give you a 15% off voucher for a future order with us.
How’s that for quality?
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.
