Interview with Andreas Polyviou

The creator of the Mr. Feels sticker pack
Sticker.Place: Where are you from and where do you live now?
Andreas Polyviou: I grew up soaking up the golden sun of Cyprus but I have been living,loving and working in London for the past 9 years.
SP: Tell us about your stickers – characters.
AP: Mr. Feels is just a regular heart that goes through what every heart goes through in life – love, heartache, stupidity and jealousy and everything else you can feeeeeel! I wanted to make a character that was a simple shape that I could have lots of fun with and to make a set that people could use in all kinds of situations.
SP: Which of your illustrations is your favorite?
AP: My favourite is the one where Mr. Feels is feeling powerful and he has giant arms and muscles, because they look very funny against his body.
SP: Tell us about your first illustration.
AP: I'm pretty sure I don't remember my first illustration but it was probably some little stick soldiers decapitating each other.
SP: Tell us about your background and experience.
AP: I have been drawing all my life, filling up sketchbooks with all kinds of pens and pencils. I studied animation at university and since then I have worked as an artist for books, animation and quite a bit in games for the last six years. I make art both digitally and traditionally and it is important for me to keep working on interesting projects in new ways and media.
SP: What are your plans for the future?
AP: I am working on a comic and a related videogame that I will finish and release in 2017, so please come and check on me next year to see what I have finished- it will be super fun! It will be full of adventure, humour and existential cosiness.
SP: What is your favorite app or game?
AP: My favourite app is a pixel art app so I can make tiny art on the tube that I can keep in my pocket!
