CMYK Designer Dictators: Frank Kozik’s Goon Squad
I once asked Frank Kozik if he gets bored designing Labbits, and he said no. He loves making Labbits, and besides, every batch of Smorkin’ bunnies paves the way for something like this. I mean, can you imagine the pitch meeting?
Kozik: “I’d like to design vinyl toy busts of Ayatollah Khomeini, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Il, Ronald Reagan and Vladimir Ilyich Lenin dressed from the shoulders up like frat boys who read Hypebeast and sell them blind-boxed in CMYK colorways.”
“Designer Dictators” Lil Ilych, The Gipper, The Pyong Yang Player, The Havana Slammer and DJ Aya-Hollah are each 4 inches tall. They’re available as a blind assortment in cyan (blue), magenta (pink), yellow (yellow), black and white colors for $9.95 here.
Frank Kozik is appearing at Kidrobot New York for the next two hours (6-8PM EST) to sign toys and talk politics. More info here.
