Interview with Moncho Massé

The creator of the Moncho the Unicorn sticker pack
Sticker.Place: Where are you from and where do you live now?
Moncho Massé: I’m from Spain, and I’ve been living in sunny Barcelona for the last 5 years, but I love travelling and living in different cities. In the last year I’ve spent long periods of time in Berlin, London and Lisbon, all of them awesome places and also great for digital freelancers.
SP: Tell us about your stickers – characters.
MM: Creating stickers is really funny, people want to see something fresh that makes them laugh. When I create stickers’ characters I’m thinking on that, create a character that people would like to share with friends because it’s funny and because it can convey an emotion in an original way. Working on the Unicorn stickers pack was a great experience!
SP: Tell us about your first illustration.
MM: Wow, my first illustration… actually, I can’t remember haha!
SP: Tell us about your background and experience.
MM: At college I studied to become an editor, but once I made it, I discovered animation and realized that a carrera in motion design was something possible, so decided to put all my efforts on it. Cartoons have been very important in my life, I grow with Akira Toriyama, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Cartoon Network, Disney, Nintendo & Sega videogames… and still today I’m a big fan of shows like ‘Adventure Time’ or ‘The amazing world of Gumball’. I spent most of my childhood drawing, telling stories, and animating was like a dream, at that time I couldn’t imagine that becoming an illustrator and animator could be possible, no one would have told you that in the 90s, but nowadays there are lots of new jobs that we couldn’t have imagine 20 years ago. That’s fascinating!
SP: What are your plans for the future?
MM: My head is full of ideas that would like to start, but I have to say that creating more content for kids would be something I would love to do in the future.
SP: What is your favorite app or game?
MM: The first game I played on my iPad was Lost Winds, and I have a really good time playing it. Reminded me to some of my favourite videogames from my childhood, like ‘Little Big Adventure’ or ‘The legend of Zelda’.
