03.Bunny Brigade

01. How would you define Bunny Brigade?

Bunny Brigade is my artist name. I chose this name because it sounds good in both English and Dutch.

02.How did all begin? How long have you been with this?

I am an Amsterdam based artist, drawing cartoons with pen and ink. One day I came up with the idea of making stickers using my drawings. I thought that would be a great way to spread my art all over town.

At that point I didn’t even realize that stickers are part of a subculture.

So I had my first black and white sticker printed and only then I noticed stickers from other artists in the streets. And there were many of them! So, from that day on I joined the sticker culture. That was in 2007. And till this day I haven’t stopped sticking! I even became more fanatic. Making and sticking stickers is my passion.

03. Why do you attacching stickers?

I love doing that, to hit the streets and just put up stickers everywhere, joining my fellow sticker freaks.

I am also very passionate about making huge sticker combo’s, collecting stickers from all over the globe and putting them up to create big sticker compositions.

I work alone or with sticker friends. It’s great to work together and have the same focus.

04. An interesting anecdote?

Sticker people always think I’m a guy and call me bro or man, but in fact I’m female.

Not many women in the sticker bussines, that’s a shame.

05. How do you see the sticker culture? Is there really subculture?

I met a lot of fellow sticker freaks through social media

It’s a sweet scene, with nice people who have sticker love in common. And yes, it’s definately a subculture.

And an important one also! Just take a look around, stickers are everywhere! Stickers are most definately art too. Making them up, drawing them, having them printed and sticking them everywhere takes skills and dedication.

06. Do you considerer this movement like an art? What do you try to transmit with this?

For me, making stickers is the perfect way to take my art to the streets and using the city as my gallery.

I also love to send sticker packs all over the globe to other sticker addicts and receiving their packs.

We are one family! My stickers don’t necessarily have a message for the world. I just make cute cartoons that need to see the light of day.

07. Anything new in mind?

Usually I draw a few different sticker designs each year.

I don’t use the same character because that would limit me too much. I find that rather boring. So every now and then I have a new batch of stickers,ready to take over the world ;).

I also do collab stickers with other stickers friends, for instance with Späm Klebo, Tommy Foreveryoung, Bheo, Nix Stencils, WoJo and Julia die Punkatze. I will do a lot more of these collabs in the future.

08. Farthest place where do you have gone? Where would you like see your stickers?

The sticker passion has taken me on several city trips to Berlin,London, New York, Zagreb.

I plan a few of these trips each year so I can spread my art in different cities. I also meet up with other stickers mates during my trips, which is great! There’s nothing better than sticking with them, to share the same passion and focus.

That’s inspiring! In the future I plan to take a lot more trips. In the meantime my sticker friends put my stickers up in Thailand, Russia, Brazil, the USA and many other counties.

09. Some advice for the people are beginning in this art?

I encourage everyone to start making stickers. It’s a great hobby.

To new sticker friends I would suggest to respect other sticker freaks, not to put your stickers over other stickers, tags or pieces. That’s not cool. There’s enough space in the streets for everyone.

And another golden rule: send a nice pack back after recieving one. It’s very frustrating to send packs and not getting anything back.

10. Someone who had been a reference for you?

I am very much inspired by artists that use humour, passion and great skills in their stickers or paste ups. When I was in Berlin I discovered El Bocho and the Little Lucy paste ups. Amazingly funny

11. Whom would you offer next month?

I suggest Jimmy Granti for the next interview, because he is a very passionate about stickers too, makes sweet combo’s and has a great story behind his character.

Do you have anyting to say? Greatings and thank you?

Peace and love to all my fellow sticker freaks! Let’s make this planet a little nicer.
