'GUESS WHO' RODNIK X DISNEY
The Rodnik Band have teamed up with Disney to create the 'GUESS WHO' collection featuring Mickey Mouse as you have never seen him before. Known for thier bold POP style The Rodnik Band have created a collection that features the fun and bright attitude we associate with Mickey.
"Mickey Mouse is the ultimate playful, pop culture icon - his silhouette instantly recognisable - and as an artist I was very excited to creatively engage with his image. I wanted to play with people's perceptions, by hiding Mickey Mouse behind my pop icons and create a humorous creative dialogue between us, entertaining the viewer and making them think twice. Said THE RODNIK BAND founder Philip Colbert.
The collection will launch worldwide in spring next year.

Their biggest collaberation project to date Lazy Oaf have created some great Disney inspired peices with their own original twist.
