We would like to give a big Wonky Welcome new kid on the block and awesome customer Colin at Alternative Aesthetics who got us to custom design the Brutal Bobble. Colin is a super talented illustrator who launched his website last Tuesday which he sells clothing and transferrable tattoo designs through, although he is available for freelance design work such as murals, album artwork, book covers and is experienced in editorial and branding. What a guy! Like the rest of Colin’s designs, the hat is black and white. It features rather more erm… brutal items not seen previously on a Wonky design; knuckle dusters, switchblade knives, nun chucks and diamonds, channelling Colin’s rather horror-punk inspiration he takes from music and art. If you would like to work with us to design your own customised hats, get in touch– we do like a challenge!
