Phil Ferguson has posted 80 pictures on Instagram and has 140,00 followers. That isn’t normal, but neither is Phil. Better known by his Instagram persona ChiliPhilly, the Melbourne, Australia-based artist has been busy with his crochet hooks, making a growing number of absolutely bizarre (and absolutely wonderful) hats.
ChiliPhilly’s deadpan expression is the ultimate contrast to his wacky hats. In one he wears a full face-wrapping pizza slice and a completely straight face. In another he dons a croissant and a slightly sad expression (or is that the pastry’s down-turned ends having an influence?). While he primarily crochets yarn-based food, ChiliPhilly also delves into other oddities—like a giant yarn ball or a hat featuring his own face. (Yep, it’s weird.)
Want to learn more about this cool guy? Find out how the hat idea was inspired by the character Finn from Adventure Time and how he’s been direct messaged by Miley Cyrus in his recent interview with the excellent Design Files.
