artist spotlight: [ hello, brute ]

jon knox makes guys. the guys you see on the street. the guys in your math class. quiet guys. the quiet guys are hello, brute. just regular, quiet guys with dog noses. mr. knox is the creator. he designs, sculpts, molds, casts and paints each guy by hand. he's brought an entire little world to life in portland. a low-key neighborhood with big trees, cool sneakers and a bitchin deli.

i found waldo. he was a dick.

the resin wave keeps growing and hello, brute is riding on top of it. but jon's got more plates in the air than that. visit his shop and check out the wares. relax, maybe have a beer. you'll see why everything he does is snatched up so quickly.
get the latest at the blog. twitter. facebook.
