Well, 2014 turned out to be a pretty busy year! so busy that this post is several months late now, let's play catch up! Early last year Kidrobot asked me to be a part of their annual Dunny series, which is always an honor!
Aside from being one of the artist in the Art of War series, I was also asked to design the packaging for it. They asked for the Dunny to be the primary focus of course, and to add their logos, I had total free range on everything else! It's always dope when a company just asks you to do your thing, much respects KR!
The series showcased a variety of artist featuring - Colus, Devious, Frank Kozik, ilovedust, Igor Ventura, Kano, Luihz Unreal, Huck Gee, DrilOne, Sergio Mancini, Patricio Oliver, JPK, Sam Fout and Shok1
Just when I thought my part was over with, Kidrobot called me up and offered to fly me out to Boulder, CO to do a signing at their flagship store for the release of the series. You know your boy likes the rock star treatment so of course I was with it!
They put me up in a super fancy Hotel in downtown Boulder called the St Julien Hotel & Spa, it was pretty baller so I made myself at home! I work hard for mine, so these perks are always appreciated.
I was in town for a couple of days, so I checked out some spots, my favorite place to eat at was the Dushanbe Tea House. I had the hummus, followed by Persian chickpea Kufteh. It was slammin!
Before the launch event I met up with the KR crew at the Kidrobot headquarters, it's always dope to see the creative folks that pull it all together, KR has always been one of my favorite brands.
After the Meet & greet with the KR crew I head down to the store to check things out. I finally get to hold my dunny design in my hand, last time I saw this little guy he was a flat vector image, now look at him... all 3-dimensional and what not, lol. Here's some pics from the event!
The event was a big success and I had fun talking and signing stuff for fans, looking forward to future projects with Kidrobot.
