The thing about being an art student in the 90s is that you had no shame. You thought you were special because you didn’t go to a ‘traditional’ post-secondary school and you felt that everything you did was creative and amazing.
Well, you were right!
And that’s why you stuck Tic Toc Tom stickers* all over the city of Toronto. To this day we hear comments like:
“Yeah, I have seen your stickers. They were up in the girls washroom at the club we went to once.”
“I saw one of your stickers on a stop sign near Yonge Street.”
“I thought you guys were a band or something.”
Vandals or culture heroes? We’ll let you decide.**
