The Hundreds is pleased to announce the release of the “The Hundreds by Todd Bratrud” collection, available at The Hundreds’ flagship locations and authorized stockists on Thursday, September 18th, 2014.
As a teenager, Todd Bratrud wanted to be a skateboarder and an artist. He dreamed of passionate romances with exotic, large-breasted women. Now, in varying proportions, he’s doing all of these things. Todd’s artwork is a true and honest reflection of his personality; an extension of his teenage fascination with skateboarding, pin-ball machine art, girls with big boobs, comic books, and all the best youthful vices society would prefer us to grow out of. He has achieved the impossible: the highly elusive balance of being both a freelance artist and a professional teenager.
“This project and these drawings are as simple as what happens when you keep a marker on you at all times, obviously bathroom walls are where the best examples of this style of ‘art’ can be found. Also, I physically (and mentally) can’t stop drawing, so these crude drawings might be the most accurate depiction of how my mind works when it comes to creating art.” – Todd Bratrud
Constantly drawing, Todd Bratrud’s mind rarely takes a break from the Sharpie-doodling inspirations that canvas the bathroom walls of his Grand Forks abode. The “The Hundreds by Todd Bratrud” collection borrows Todd’s seasoned hand to create a limited illustrative line-up, consisting of short and long-sleeve T-shirts, a short-sleeve button-up woven shirt, a pullover hooded sweatshirt, 5-panel cap, and a notebook/sharpie combo pack. In conjunction with the release, Todd Bratrud will be developing a series of differentiated prints and artist proofs, available for viewing on TheHundreds.com.
