The Watts Riots

XLarge Spring 2015

Artwork designed for the capsule collected inspired by the 1965 Watts riots. The group is a faux sports team themed after the Watts Riots.

The significance of the phrase “Blood Brother” is in reference to the term used to mark Black owned business in hopes that rioters would leave them unharmed. It could only be a coincidence, but Kendrick Lamar’s Hiii Power use the same hand sign..”put you 3s up”

This is by far my favorite body of work with XLarge.
