When we were compiling our wish list of international artists and agencies, we were hoping to earn the respect of the pioneers that were breaking new ground in their respective industries. Peskimo are the quintessential visionaries that are helping to define the underground art movement in the UK and we were honored by their acceptance to participate. Despite being some 5,500 miles apart, they were amongst the last to receive their tins and first to return them. The attention to detail and color combination is awesome and it is a perfect depiction of the style that earned them their notoriety.

About Peskimo >>
Peskimo’s world is teeming with monsters and bunnies, pattern and texture, combining quirky details and streamlined design with a generous pinch of nostalgia to create art that has won admirers far and wide. Since meeting at university in Leeds, Jodie and David saw eye to eye on robots, kittens and evil monkeys.
They began to work under the name of Peskimo in 2004, and together they have crafted a vast array of characters and creations that have appeared on Tshirts, magazines, newspapers, billboards and nightclub walls. They find inspiration in cartoons, vintage graphic design and overhearing people in the post office queue.
In 2006, they collaborated with Kid Robot to create a mini series of toys which featured 16 unique characters sold as 3 inch vinyl figures. They have since worked with other toy companies including Crazy Label with whom they created the iconic Monster Burp figure in 2008. Since working as Peskimo, the pair has worked with a wide variety of clients including Sony, Barclays, MTV, BBC, Vodafone and AOL.
