Bobo-Bear designer of this years Brighton Bear Weekend (BBW) logo paid a visit to the city last month for the launch of his t-shirt design for the BBW festival in June.
ON a very wet and stormy Saturday night, fans turned up at Prowler in St James Street to meet the man behind the art.
Bobo-Bear, Roberto, was a supermarket worker in Italy when he decided to seek a better life in London. He packed his pencils and moved to the big smoke where his wonderful bear designs quickly took off.
Graham Munday, Chair of Brighton Bear Weekend, said: “It is very hard to go to a single bear event across the world without seeing one of his T-shirts. He is that popular. The whole team was delighted to have Roberto with us this year and we are all looking forward to seeing him throughout the year. We would also like to thank Prowler Brighton and all the staff for their help and continuous support.”
T-shirts and limited edition hoodies are now available in store at Prowler Brighton.
