MADGODS X NEKO
(Proposed Product Line)
It's a hot afternoon at a dive cuban sandwich shop. Chris of Madgods fame is sitting there waiting for me to show up.
Someone delivers a package that says TOP SECRET hands it to Chris then walks out.
The note says "Look under the table and you will know what to do" There is an old vintage handcuff key taped to the bottom of the table he is sitting at.
I walk in with a 80's briefcase handcuffed to my wrist. He looks up at me and smiles.
This was a project that I had in my head for many years. A study on power. Powerful symbology that is in society today.
What makes a symbol powerful? The group its connected to? The respect of all who see them and know the meaning behind them.
We took various groups and looked at the symbology behind them and in total respect paid omage to them through the artwork on these shirts.
Yakuza, Gangster Desciples, Bandidos, Anon, Branch Davidians, the NSA.
All respected organizations with powerful symbols.
We we ultimately decided not to do the line as we never wanted anyone to get hurt becasue of our art, but the idea is out of my head and it was a fun project. Could be done as a print series in the future.
