Marcel, from the Zazzle store mzobcn, talks with us about his hopes of fame and his dream world of color. Check out the interview below and don’t forget to check out his store mzobcn!
Zazzle: Firstly, when and how did you first become interested in art? How long have you been making art?
Marcel: I grew up next to a tattoo studio and traced the designs as a child. At age 12, I began to design my own designs. Get ready for me. Ed Hardy’s was yesterday’s news! I was born to paint and 2012 is the year of chance! MZO-BCN stands for MAZO from Barcelona.
Zazzle: How would you describe your style?
Marcel: Graffiti, tattoo , old school, and not conventional.
Zazzle: When you’re not designing, what do you do for fun?
Marcel: Family, friends, good food, long sleep, and parties.
Zazzle: What got you interested in selling your art on Zazzle?
Marcel: Zazzle is one of the best sites on the net with a lot of products that work with street art designs very well. People from all over the world can design their own products. Unfortunately, they only print in the US, which unfortunately creates high delivery costs in Switzerland. I hope that Zazzle prints in Europe soon!
Zazzle: What tips can you give someone who is just starting out on Zazzle?
Marcel: Stay true to your style and try to create recognizable features in all your designs. Have patience. Take time each day to develop your own style.
Zazzle: Do you have any fun stories about being a seller on Zazzle?
Marcel: No, not yet. Lots of people have visited my shop, but only 2 people have purchased a product. But all beginnings are hard, so thanks to everyone for visiting my shop!
Zazzle: And lastly, on a very serious note, if you could be a superhero, what would be your super power?
Marcel: The whole world is painted by telepathy. I could live paint with my mind. I could make every day a new, positive world of color. I’d create MAZO planet!
Zazzle: How creative! Thanks for sharing Marcel!
