BANANA KRUGER AND ALTERNATIVE COMICS

As we continue to chat to artists who have been involved someway in Stickerbomb, we come around to Lary aka BANANA KRUGER who lives and works in Israel as a full time designer and animator. When did you first develop an interest in illustration/the arts? Like everyone else - during long and boring lessons at school.I started to draw in notebooks for grammar, history, and math. There were small funny comics about me and my friends. What is the most difficult part of being an independent artist? I don't think I'm there. But from time to time I do freelance...

JASPER VAN GESTEL on Colours, Tattoos and selling mouse mats.

"The world is becoming a grey and over-regulated robotic place. Illustration brings colour." The fusion of geometric shapes and animals (in a playful sense) has been the predominant element in your work, where do you draw inspiration? I think animals are great metaphors for human behavior and emotions. The geometric shapes in my work often are minimized symbols like a moon & stars, a vase, a face, spots in the fur of an animal, they can be anything and I love them because of their timeless simplicity. When was it you developed an interest in illustration and animation? I liked...

Stormie Mills on street art, graffiti and the final frontier of humanity

"When you are starting you can be free with what you do. You can experiment, be bold, and adventurous... Stormie at home in his studio ...as you move along the line of life this changes and so the challenge becomes to keep that, to be what you were when you started, to refer to your youth in a way that keeps things saying something, to speak of the past with a gentle understanding and make images that talk to the times we are in." For almost three decades, Australian artist Stormie Mills explored the realms of humanity through his enigmatic,...

INKBOY's cartoon illustrations and street influences

Melbourne based artist INKBOY creates fun, cartoon and street inspired artworks. How did you get started and what's your inspiration with Inkboy? Inkboy started as a bit of an accident - I always loved cartoons and how they projected character, I was doing a lot of detailed tattoo style art but it never sat right with my personality. One of my biggest influences in Melbourne was a clothing label and creator called Boywolf. He ended up being a massive mentor and helped me get on the right track with how I wanted my art to come across. In doing so,...
