New Ninja: Gavriel Discordia

New to the Tenacious Ninja blogger Team we have Gavriel Discordia.

He has his fingers in a lot of pies these days, most of which revolve around Designer Toys and Designer Stickers. Starting with Discordia Culture Shop which houses all of his independent Labels including Psychological Industries, Apology Girl, and his wife, Starr Mignon's Pink Nightmare Squad. They make quite a team taking their operation on the road to various Comicons and Pop-Up Store events where ever they get invited. Mostly across the South & Eastern U.S.

They also operate the sister company Discordia Merchandising producing Exclusive Designer Toy releases, Custom Goods for independent Artists, Musicians, and non-profits. AND they even produce an Artist Series of Button Displays featuring Underground Artists including Mizna Lens, EyeFormation, Neon7, and Monster Little aka ZiQi. They might just email you about their 2016 series next.

Gavriel is also responsible for the resurrection of the Join the Underground sticker campaign started in 1966 by Grove Press. Curating the ongoing Underground Blend Designer Sticker Pack Series, which is currently gathering for Volume 06. And Designer the niche vinyl sticker showcase website. He believes that Designer Stickers, mainly silk-screened vinyl, are a key part of the underground art world by which artists can reach gain crucial exposure through trades, sticker drops and the ever constant stream of international sticker art shows. And he is doing his part to elevate the presence of the movement however possible.

Websites include:
