These are great. I love how distorted the bodies are.

Great character designs, you should put together a sticker book/ art zine with crazy surreal scenery to plaster these on.

Yep Aeron I understand what you mean. I’ve already though about that. Actually you’re not the first person who suggests me this. I had a book like that when I was young. And I loved it. But I don’t think it would work with adults. I’m pretty sure they would be afraid to spoil the work. Two reasons for that: doubt about their artistic ability (a child doesn’t care about that, only fascination rules the game), and also the fact that the book is part of their collection: loads of people think about it in term of price. Plus spending 5 or 15 minutes to add colour to a sticker while having a chinwag with friends and then going out to stick it and let it be digested by the street isn’t about the same intension. It is neither the same emotion nor the same relation to life. Actually the book with stickers if it works is closer to it than just collecting fanzine. If I do it some day I’ll do it for the kids. Or may be we could do that all together. Like everybody makes one background and loads of characters and etc and then we all try to assemble them? Yep and onomatopoeias and etc…
My next step with stickers will be to add text and make comix in the street (actually I already have text and etc…)

These are really great,, I also had a stickerbook,, it was a haunted mansion with pages and pages of scenery and about 50 ghouls and creeps to put on it.

We should manufacture our own scratch & sniff stickers. Smelling like Stale beer. Cigarette butts. Butts. Scabies. Meth. etc.
