We would love to see Astro One design a series of toys based on the awesome characters we’re showcasing below. The Montreal-based, Canadian artist has a wide range expertise in graffiti, painting, illustration, design and merchandising.

His work reminds us of tokidoki‘s Cactus Pups as well as Frank Kozik‘s Labbits since many of his creatures have bunny-ears… Astro also plays around with hooded hybrid characters, but his ideas are mostly centered around humans and monsters.

Astro uses a unique selection of burgundy hues and incorporates a Gothic rawness in his work. In addition, he also incorporates an awareness of urban life, with some of his character designs adorned in streetwear and gold chains – a nice eclectic style that we’d love to have in the toy market.
