“Kilroy Was Here” is an American symbol that became popular during World War II. Originally manifesting as graffiti, Kilroy continuted to live as various pop-culture forms throughout the rest of the century. Eric Elms became a longtime collector of vintage Kilroy emphemera and published a Kilroy themed book “Wish You Were Here” in 2009. He was drawn to the image as a version of what he referred to as “pre-graffiti, graffiti”; a collectively anonymous signature. Over the years the character has become almost a mascot for the studio. By nature a perfect vehicle for collaborations, it has been used for numerous projects, products and artworks.
