about this art
"There's a few meanings for this one. My ex-boyfriend had two little boys and I would mail them letters and I would put tons of stickers all over them. And he sent me a video of when they open up their letters and the little one was putting the stickers I sent all over his face. I just thought that was really cute.
Then the other meaning for this piece is that a lot of times that my job at Saturday Night Live, it’s a really competitive environment, and it's just hard to squeeze your voice in when there's so many amazing, talented people. I'm pretty sensitive, and I get a little lost and confused, and this is even without the show, this has always been the case with me and the journey. So I felt like I wanted to draw some little kid that kind of looks like a Shel Silverstein cartoon. You know in school they would put stickers on your homework if you did a good job, or if you're special or something. I just said well, what if the kid just puts them all over himself? Like, fuck em, I’m my favorite!” - Melissa Villaseñor
