My rise to sticker stardom continues! Recently I did a Q&A with Sticker List on my accidental bump into success. I spoke about artists I dig, and current projects I’m working on, how the sticker empire came about etc… Click the pic or here to read. And if you have an iphone and don’t have my app – what’s wrong with you? It’s like having trippy art to send to your friends! Get it here! Woo! More soon! oxo GD

A pioneer has left the earth. I don’t know where I would be right now if it wasn’t for the apple computer. I remember my school got given some of the first ones back in 1984. Only the super geeks used them, I wasn’t the least bit interested. All through high school, I steered clear away from the nerdy computer room. After I graduated and flip flopped around the states, my mom kept praising the value of computers. But I wasn’t buying it. “It makes uncreative people creative, not interested!” I told her. Then in 1994, my mom asked me what I wanted for christmas, my boyfriend at the time said “Tell her you want a computer!” So I said “I want a computer”, and I got my first mac. I got it, cos all my friends had one, and they could show me the ropes. He used it to play games and harass people online. I didn’t really use it too much, but I started to play around with drawing caricatures of people in photoshop using the mouse ( I still draw with the mouse!).
After my father died in 97, I moved to NYC and got a better mac, and spent a year really teaching myself things. How to record music, edit video, animate. It has enhanced my creativity ten fold. I can do the tasks that would normally take loads of people and years to do, all on my own! I often think of creative friends and family that died before the advent of computer technology, and think to myself “they would have LOVED this!”
R.I.P. Steve Jobs! Thank you for the innovations, and thank you for allowing me to further advance my ideas!
