When i moved here the Portland sticker scene was very small. Only a few really active people. Me, Mr say, Nasty Nate, Klutch, some of the bay area people from endless canvas. I was already established online and apart of the one of the first sticker message boards called sticker minions. I started learning things from other artists around the world and starting applying those techniques and ideas here in Portland. Within 7 years of being here there has been over 50 active sticker artists in and around this city. I feel like the standard for silk screened stickers in a diy fashion was really heavy in Portland and i think this lead to inspiring so many other artists in this scene. Not to say sticker artists in pdx don't hand draw their stickers or block print or whatever just that silk screening is very heavy handed here. I'm told i'm like the grandfather of sticker art in portland. I'm always willing to help and teach new artists some of my techniques and share my knowledge. I'd say the most active artists in the city since Ive been here are SKAM, Mr Say, Nasty Nate, Rx skulls, Klutch, The lost cause, Buxom, Full Bleed, No bonzo, Kanye pdx, poopin beaks, peel your face off, Russell pdx, Satan spawn, Bose503, Flowernamed jane, Awake435, Invoice, Dr Rasterbator, Princess Daddy, Voxx Romana, Alex art life, Oinkx, Adeptone, Magical, Circle Face, Deadred, Just one, Skrumpy, Hesherpark, Yaks, Nabru, Seeka, Olive Always, and so many more. I think its because of what kind of city Portland is. It's a community based city. Everyone here is nice and if you're a fucking dick you pretty much end up a loner.
