Last spring Esther Glas from contacted me with the question if I was interested in designing stamps for her new stamp brand Badass Stamps Studio. “Your style is a perfect fit.” Esther wrote me.  “I am aiming for stamps that are different. Crazy texts, a bit cheeky, quirky, daring.” How could I refuse! I have always been in love with stamps, ever since I was a kid.

Potato stamps

As a child I cut stamps from potatoes. (Remember that!?) And at art school I even found it difficult to choose between graphic design or graphic arts (print making), because I have always adored that moment when you press an object on a paper…. and than all of a sudden you have a reproduction! I still find this magical.

But because I was so busy with my Art Journal Summer School and my new book (Art Journal School), I was not really focused on promoting this new brand and showing you what awesome things you can do with these stamps.

From now on I will try to show you my love for stamping a little more often. I use stamps a lot in my art journals,  especially small graphical symbols and background stamps. 🙂
