New Haven, Connecticut painter, illustrator and designer Sket-One was one of the first artists to customize the Dunny. He became hooked on the medium of designer vinyl toys and has since gone on to create iconic characters of his own including the Eggster and Ripple. The Ripple character was designed as a homage to gas station toys from the 1950s. Sket borrowed the stance of Bob’s Big Boy and drew inspiration from the iconic rotundness of mascots like the Michelin Man and the Pillsbury Doughboy and created a totally unique brand mascot for himself. And he doesn’t mind the comparisons: “That’s exactly what I want you to say. The fact that everyone tries to nail him down to another brand icon… means I’ve done it, I’ve already brought you in!”
