Gary Baseman x Flat Bonnie Presents Flat Ahwroo

AHWROO like you have never seen before! That’s right, living legend Gary Baseman links up with our plush friends at Flat Bonnie to give “AHWROO” that Flat Bonnie signature look and it FREAKING WORKS!

The name Ahwroo sounds like a howl, and comes directly from Baseman’s fascination with the Wolf
Man, one of the Universal Classic Monsters: “I was attracted to all the monsters, but I was drawn to
the Wolf Man because he was human and imperfect and misunderstood. When the moon is full, he
loses control. That’s Ahwroo.”

This new collaboration follows Baseman and Flat Bonnie’s projects that including Flat Toby (2021) and special editions of Ahwroo as a designer toy (Goth Ahwroo, Glam Ahwroo, Groucho Ahwroo, and
Sprite Ahwroo–from 2021 to 2022). Yukari Fujimoto of Flat Bonnie has also contributed to the design
and fabrication of Baseman’s plush figures of Blackie the Cat and Manny Moa, as well as large-scale
plush versions of Baseman’s characters displayed in the USA, Aotearoa New Zealand, and China.

Ahwroo was created in 2012. This role is similar to a monkey and also a monster. The cute and scary character, Ahwroo, bears his snaggle-toothed grin to express his want of attention. If he doesn’t get it, he just might scratch and draw some blood. He not only needs a lot of attention but also hides the complex and contradictory aspects of human nature. Needless to say, the creation of Ahwroo is definitely one of a kind. The meticulous details of the painting and the natural form of the first-class engraving technology feel like Ahwroo is in front of us!!

Ahwroo is one of the characters inspired by the late Blackie the
Cat (2003–2020), who drew blood when he needed affection.
Transformed as 3D figures by 3DRetro and APPortfolio,
Ahwroo is among Baseman’s popular characters, alongside his classic, iconic characters Toby,
Dumb Luck, and Hotchachacha, among others.

An edition of 50, FLAT AHWROO is exquisitely and individually handmade
in vegan pleather by Yukari Fujimoto of Flat Bonnie.

Each 11-inch Flat Ahwroo is numbered and signed by both artists, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
