has teamed up with Kidrobot
, to create Kidrobot for Swatch, a collection of eight watches, each accompanied by a complimentary Dunny. Dunny is Kidrobot’s iconic and highly collectible bunny-like vinyl toy, a customizable canvas for artists from widely varying backgrounds. Gary Baseman, Jeremyville, Frank Kozik, Joe Ledbetter, MAD, Tara McPherson, SSUR, and Tilt are the eight extraordinary artists who have contributed to the new collection, each with a characteristic design for a Gent and its accompanying 3-inch (7.6 cm) Dunny.
-It was a great honor to be a part of such an amazing series. I've been a fan of Swatch since I was a kid, and really enjoy working with Kidrobot so the chance to be a part of the collaboration was a no brainer. I submitted several designs, and they came back with the "SHOUT OUT" design as the one they wanted to move forward with. While my first choice wasn't the "pink" one, I am really happy that they picked it. If anything because of how it stands out well within the series.
For the release of the series I was asked to be a part of some of the launch events. I did some live painting on giant Dunny's and "Maxi-Swatches" for different release parties in Shanghai, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, Liverpool, & New York. It was great to see the response to this collaboration first hand on a global level.
