For those that don’t know, I am the lead graphic designer for the kid’s streetwear line “Leaders of the New“, started by my good friend Chuck-Oliver Lapus. Together, we developed the main “Astro” space helmet logo and launched our Season 1 collection last fall. We are currently in Season 2 so keep checking out the site for the newest releases for your kids and babies. Along the way, we developed a robot version of Astro and styled him in Voltron colors for one of our stickers.
In any case, this robot Astro version was another great opportunity to create a toy for the #weeklytoyproject. Standing at about 4,5″ tall, Astro Robot is laser cut out of wood, then hand painted and assembled, in a slightly different style than ones from before.
