Webuyyourkids

Part of

The Perch

Webuyyourkids is Sonny Day & Biddy Maroney, from Sydney. Webuyyourkids is a conversation between two individuals played out in colour, shape, texture and drawing from shared influences of comic books, skateboarding, music and film.

Sonny and Biddy’s commercial experience goes back over fifteen years, but they began working together in 2006 creating screen-printed posters for Popfrenzy tours, and have been working as a team ever since. Today much of their work is still for the music industry, as well as commercial clients across the globe.

They have been commissioned by publications including Business Week, Rolling Stone Australia, Wired USA, The New York Times, Little White Lies and Huck and have also illustrated and designed for clients and brands including Pitchfork.com, Sydney Opera House, Adidas, Sneaker Freaker, XXXX, Tourism Victoria, Qantas, Urban Outfitters, Mountain Dew, MTV, Skateboarding Australia, St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, and a long list of local and international bands.
