Hailing from Los Angeles - by way of France, by way of San Francisco, by way of Colorado, by way of Maryland (we’re probably missing some other places), Bunnie Reiss draws inspiration from her Eastern European background, with its traditions in folk art and bright, vibrant colors.
Magic, mysticism and the stars have made their way into her consciousness and out through her art, which can be found all around the world in galleries, bookstores, abandoned buildings, forests, fields, or anywhere that needs a little extra magic!
Our collaboration with Bunnie has finally made it possible to wear her special brand of magic, and walk through her mystical world.
One of the most recognizable and celebrated counter-culture artists, Divine (Harris Glenn Milstead) appeared in numerous films, most notably those of John Waters (including Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Hairspray)... and now appearing on these Gumball Poodle exclusive socks!
She is widely viewed as a hero in both gay and punk culture, as well as one of the most significant drag queens of all time.
Based in Boise, ID, Dreyfus takes inspiration from the likes of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Peter Max… (you can see how we make the perfect pair)
The colorful characters she calls Alter Egos navigate their special world in their own special way, and now, for the first time, you can step into that world - literally!
Hailing from the immaculate sunny streets of San Diego, California, Thomas Fernandez was raised in the sun's favorite city. Influenced by the world of skateparks, vintage monster toys and masks, and psychedelic posters, from an early age, Thomas was born in the soup he would soon ladle out to the masses.
Touko Laaksonen, better known to friends and fans simply as “Tom” was an uncompromising artist that drew as he fantasized, and in so doing, created a fantastic collection of erotic illustrations.
Today, Tom’s collection of illustrations continue to serve as an unabashed depiction of queer fantasy, which has paved the way for erotic artists to showcase their work and be proud of it.
