First teased at Online Sideshow New York Con was Giraffe and Ram of the Guerilla Squadron. The anticipated release has finally come and both making the grade as top gun. Like we said previously, Over the years Gary Lockwood aka Freehand Profit the Artist/designer/illustrator/ Hip Hop/ sneakerhead has heavily established himself as the king of Mask Makers @sneakermasks. Freehand Profit sees him work his magic turning sneakers into jaw-dropping masks! Freehand Profit it’s not the first time Freehand Profit has released designer art collectables but NOW, linking up with the folks at Unruly Industries to present to you, not one, but TWO designer art collectable toys in true Freehand Profit signature style!
Welcome to the Guerrilla Art Squadron. An eclectic pack of stylish animal survivalists. The first pair of creatures we come across in this post-apocalyptic petting zoo is the Giraffe and the Ram. How’d we get here? I’m not sure but you better grab a mask quick if you wish to survive! At some point, we forgot we’re not the only species on this planet. Despite an effort to reverse our Kamikaze run of war, consumption and pollution; our time as the dominant species came to an end. It wasn’t the end for the rest of the planet though, evolution continued to push forward. Beasts of all types developed amongst an ever-changing world, constantly engineering new ways to survive the hostile environment humans left behind – namely gas masks that allow them to breath in a now toxic atmosphere.
Embrace the urban jungle and squad up with the Ram and Giraffe: Guerilla Squadron Designer Collectible Toy Set by artist Freehand Profit. Inspired by the artist’s traditional sneaker canvas combined with a vintage gas mask aesthetic, these wildly imaginative collectable creatures can be displayed on a shelf or mounted on your wall with an ambigram that reads “PROFIT” in either direction.
Turned out great right? Nice transition Unruly x Sideshow has done.
