Butts, baths and vampire bats: The adorable, slightly dirty illustrations of Cute Brute

Cute Brute is a Brooklyn-based illustrator creating unusual, adorable, slightly dirty images that feature odd characters and a whole lot of butts.

As It’s Nice That point out, Cute Brute’s work – which can be seen in full via their Instagram feed – is mainly male-focused, with colourful, clean cut figures that navigate a world that’s both familiar and surreal.

Butts, baths and vampire bats. Check out the the adorable, slightly dirty illustrations of Brooklyn artist Cute Brute.

The central character in Cute Brute’s work is a burly man (perhaps Cute Brute himself?) engaged in a variety of eccentric activities, including taking a blood bath, doing the laundry in only his socks, and riding strange, mythical creatures.

The colours throughout the body or work are bold and vibrant, further contributing to a underlying sense of surrealism. But never do the images dip into the dark side. Cute Brute’s work is quirky and fun, and if you’re feeling a little blue, they’ll most definitely cheer you up.
