Description
This collection comprises stickers created by an anonymous student, known as "Petr the Anteatr" or "Original Petr", as well as stickers created using his original template and distributed by another anonymous student known as "Petr the Planteatr" or "Community Petr". The collection includes 5 stickers from the original artist and 7 from "Community Petr" which were created in 2018 and 2019.
Background
Petr (pronounced "Pet-urr") the Anteatr stickers were created by an anonymous student and started appearing around the University of California, Irvine campus in September 2018. The stickers are an homage to the UCI mascot, Peter the Anteater, and intended as a gift to enhance the school's culture and to help bring students together. The original artist, known as Petr the Anteatr on social media or "Original Petr", created 13 sticker designs between September 2018 and his graduation in June 2019. He finally revealed his identity and first name, Qasim, on the @petr_the_anteatr Instagram with the release of Grad Petr, his final sticker.
