I like: Stüssy x Xaime Hernandez

Reading Time: < 1 minute

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.

Stussy x Xaime Hernandez

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.
