Produced in the late 2000s when KAWS was experimenting with incorporating television into his artworks, Outlines is a collection of prints by the critically acclaimed American artist and designer which each take the outline of a recognisable cartoon character which KAWS then fills with his own graphic designs.

The prints in the Outlines collection showcase KAWS’ unique visual language and artistic style. KAWS’ artworks can be characterized by their emphasis on colour, bold gestural lines and incorporation of a set of repeated motifs, cartoon characters and distinctive graphics. The Snoopy Portfolio, 2015, for example, features KAWS’ signature crossed out eyes which have become synonymous with the artist’s name. The collection reflects how, through his art, KAWS enjoys appropriating iconic cartoon characters, such as Snoopy, and deconstructing them, making them into abstract paintings.

KAWS frequently takes universally recognisable cartoon characters and appropriates them by adding skull and crossbone heads, crossed out eyes and Mickey Mouse gloves. Alongside the cartoon characters featured in Outlines, KAWS has adapted other popular cartoon characters such as SpongeBob Square Pants, the Smurfs and the Simpsons.
