New Sticker

Okay, so I'm not a fancy face graphic designer. But I try. Here is a new design I did this week for some Trust Your Struggle stickers. I haven't made home style stickers in a cool minute, but it's about time we start up again with spreading our message. Recently we've been finding people online getting tattoos of the words Trust Your Struggle and seeing our "expressive hand writings" on walls etc. and people having great reactions to the expression. I'm not saying we're the first to put those words together, but....

Either way, TYS is for the people and its way bigger than all of us. We're honored that people would find those words as inspiration and when nothing else, you gotta trust your struggle.

Also, image originally photographed by Susan Meiselas during the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua. Hand styles by Miguel Bounce Perez. Get your read on gangsta.

Recent Sketch 2, "Grandota"

This is another sketch that I did while out of the country. I've had these characters in my head for a while (maybe a year), but haven't done much with them. "Grandota" in Spanish means large lady. This one is wearing a typical Salvadorian apron that many women wear as they cook, and work selling food or other goods. I hope to one day paint one of these grandotas as a mural. Imagine seeing this on a wall? A great way to give honor to all the women that put in hella work to feed and keep a family together.

Recent Sketch 1, "Tierra"

Drew this sketch the other month while me and the lady were in Jamaica. The object in the middle is a Mexica shield, the feathers are not finished. Think I might redo it as a poster, would also look good as a tattoo, but don't bite without asking. Buy me dinner first, then go in for the kill.
