Are you labled "Different?"
Good. Us too. Let's form a band... or a skate crew! Maybe a cooking circle? Book club? Ok let's think on it and regroup later.
Some think labeling a person "weird" is a negative. Whatever. Just because you may have purple hair, or like anime, or have 3 fingers on your right hand, or love chips mashed into your PB&J, maybe you talk with a lisp, or have a sweet sweet full back tattoo of a desert sunset. That doesn't make you LESS than. It makes you freegin RULE! You pop! You are that sparkle horse that's not scared to stand out.
The Weirds are a toy line and brand that rep and celebrate those differences with a set of original characters that are anything but normal. The Weirds world is simple - be unique, be different, be you...be Weird!
Their body shape and eyes, along with the weird thing, are all that unites the characters. From mega-bright colors and random patterns to horns, fins or even Mexican wrestling masks, they all have their own weirdnesses, likes and dislikes.
And remember, weird people are the risk takers, the explorers and the innovators! Weird is a GOOD thing! Let it roam the countryside and crazy dance when your favorite song comes on... let it make odd faces in the mirror while fixing your hair...set it free! So join forces with these characters...and let's ALL get WEIRD!

Then there's this guy, the creator dood.
Chris Hawley is an award-winning designer/illustrator from Houston, Texas. He's done all kinds of cool projects from the global rebrand of Bruce Lee to working at various levels of the ad agency world from designer to art director, as well as creative director and part of the launch team of The Anime Network, America’s first network dedicated to Japanese animation.
His early influences come from his brother Mike who would draw with him for hours and taught him to look at things differently. “Just because the sky is blue, doesn’t mean you have to color it blue”.
His current influences come from his surroundings, friends, family, music, art, design from around the globe, fashion, wandering, coffee, junk piles and more coffee... plus another cup of coffee.
Weird Fun Facts: Chris was called "weird" because he loved to draw all the time, liked playing chess (city chess champ no less!) and his nose was pretty dang crooked as a kid thanks to a dog claiming it as a snack...
