While Chris Brown may be young, he is certainly no kid… at least when it comes to his musical career. However, his latest artistic endeavor finds the soon-to-be 23 year old channeling his inner child and getting a little playful… literally. Brown is a huge art lover (and an artist himself), and the crooner recently teamed up with contemporary pop culture artist Ron English to create their own Dum English toy line

Breezy and English, who is known for taking pop culture images and portraying them in different lights, launched their line of collectible figurines at the Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles on May 2, 2012, and took the time to sign some autographs for gallery goers. The figurines Brown and English co-designed are a series of skull-faced mini astronauts that come in a variety of colors. They’re cute and creepy all at the same time!

Exchanging jokes and laughs, Brown and English look like old friends at the launch… and that’s because they are! The singer is a huge fan of English’s work, and the artist even designed Brown’s ‘F.A.M.E.’ album cover. At the event, both spoke very highly of each other.

“Hands down right now my guy is Ron English. Ron has to be the more creative, ‘out there’ artist I see. His work is so precise but at the same time so unorthodox,” Brown said (quotes via Rap-Up). “I think it’s incredible to be able to see him do what he does and be a fan.” English later praised Brown, saying, “Chris is one of the sweetest, most talented people I’ve ever met. Working with Chris is like being a kid in a candy store. The ideas we come with are fun and colorful, young, and daring.”
