Jaime Hernandez (yes it is also spelt with an X) is the artist behind the famous comic series Love & Rockets which catalogued the lives of a mostly latina cast as teenagers involved in the American punk scene through to the present day. I liked the earlier issues which also interlaced a modicum of science fiction into the stories. The art is reminiscent of pop art.
Given Shawn Stüssy‘s long association with music and California, it made sense that his original label Stüssy should reach out to Mr Hernandez to collaborate on t-shirt designs. Hernandez’ work moves well from paper to t-shirts. Its only a shame that Stüssy’s site still has mad hate for European customers.
