Hello, Brute

Published May 28, 2009 by Graham



Hello, Brute is the brainchild of Portland-based designer Jon Knox. Employing a cast of adorably droopy-eyed pseudo-anthropomorphic fashion-forward young fellas, Knox has constructed a veritable universe of saccharine saturated sherbet-colored cuteness. Through pencil drawings, paintings, skate decks, t-shirts and limited edition toys, Knox’s characters are poised to take over the world, Takashi Murakami-style. Hello, Brute is like the hipster Precious Moments, minus the greeting card platitudes and creationist undertones. Check out this rad recent Hello, Brute release: a pair of wild thing-esque custom toys sculpted by Toronto creature-makers We Kill You.
