The Eyesores

When they’re not offered as the coolest icon pack in the hood (Download here), the Eyesores are unique, creative and funny characters that live inside a popular Facebook application with over 740,000 users. They are virtual gifts, ready to be sent around the world to places as far flung as Indonesia, Colombia and the USA. Each Eyesore carries a quirky message and the unique hand-drawn style of Xavier, making the Eyesores application one of the most loved virtual gift platforms on Facebook.

Xavier Gallego

“I live, eat, and fall in love in Barcelona. I’ve wanted to be an illustrator my whole life (as well as a Ninja Turtle), and hold degrees in Publicity and Graphic Design. Being a Ninja Turtle didn’t work out, and whilst thinking what to do next I began to keep an illustrated diary of funny characters I saw in the world around me which I called Eyesores. After my friends and family encouraged me to create more, I decided to share my Eyesores with the world. So I built a Facebook application.

In 2007 the Eyesores application was launched and I haven’t looked back since. The application lets people send my little creations to each other as virtual gifts with a message, and express the same feelings I feel when I create each character. I now have over 740,000 people from all around the world using the application, and more and more people join the Eyesores World every day. The future of Eyesores looks really exciting, with comics, animations and clothing all in development – the sky is the limit!”

So make sure you download the icon pack, install the Facebook app, check out Xavier’s portfolio, connect with him on Twitter + Facebook and tell us what you think of them all. Cheers!
