UPDATE: This Friday morning, KAWS took to Instagram to unveil a new plush collectible featuring Bert from Sesame Street with the artist’s signature “XX” motif embellished on the eyes of the art object. We can assume the plush will release alongside the recently-revealed Ernie version. Check out both plushes below and stay tuned for further details.

The artist took a snapshot of a plush Ernie figure, complete with KAWS’ signature X motif replacing the character’s eyes.
