Pop-Art for the Instant Generation!  Featuring bits of vintage advertising images, off-kilter humor, words, and phrases, and a pop-art & culture sensibility, Unkie Monkie Studios has been an online repository for all things retro for more than a decade.  Form Function Style is happy to represent the studio’s recent expansion into surface design on a wide variety of products.

Form Function Style

Form Function Style assists both developing and established artists in the creation, development, and promotion of their surface design brand.  We are proud to be representing artist Susan C. Price’s new surface design brand, as well as Morton Design House, Unkie Monkie Studios, and Beautiful Surfaces brands.  We are constantly on the lookout for artists whose work will translate to surface design, and look forward to representing new talent.  Pattern your world!

Bunnys Waffle Shops throw pillow from Unkie Monkie Studios

We’ve always gotten a kick out of this logo since Unkie Monkie Studios found it on a matchbook cover years ago.  There isn’t much available on the history of the Bunnys Waffle Shops chain beyond the fact that there were at least 3 locations in San Francisco, California: 1102 Market Street, 964 Market Street, and 11 McAllister Street.  An internet image search reveals several pieces of dishware originally manufactured by Tepco China for the restaurant.  An Unkie Monkie Studios fan contacted us who’s parents frequented Bunnys during the early 1940s, and who visited Bunnys regularly as an adult in the 1960s.  We who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s and 1980s never ran across any of the Bunnys locations, unfortunately.

Unkie Monkie Studios offers this great illustration on apparel and home accessories at their Zazzle and Cafepress stores.  Find it on gift wrap, and fabric at Unkie Monkie Studios Spoonflower store, and on napkins, placemats, dish towels, throw pillows, and even furniture at their Roostery Home Decor store!
