“SHE SLAPS!” featured artist: Orble (Germany)

Please provide a brief description of your work.

Orbles are turquoise creatures based on a cat, I grew up with. Originally named Max, me and my brother created silly names for him all the time ( things like “Worble,” “Reble,” “Knorble”) until the Nickname Orble was born in the early 90s. I always drew him as a kid and 15 years later on a party, my brother asked me to draw the” fat cat “again. I promised that I still can do it..even drunk and with closed eyes. The wobbly creatures that came out of this experiment cracked us all up.

(I still love to find the shape with closed eyes) It’s not only cats anymore..It’s every kind of animals and also weird mixtures.

They all have stripes just like Max had and they are turquoise

because this is my favourite color since my very beginnings as a human being.

Does being a female artist, or identifying as a female artist, influence your work, and if so, how?

Nope. I just don’t want my characters to be just sweet or corny ..They all have some edgy eeriness under their surface. And I refuse sexual content…it’s too much sexual content everywhere, this bores me.

What’s the best thing about being a female artist in the sticker world?

The surprised faces on meetups that I’m a sis and not a bro.

Is there anything else you’d like to share?

A kiss to all my sticky bros and sisters ?
