I’ve spent many mornings before and nights after work to complete my first typeface. From what I can gather from internet searches (so take it with a grain of salt) there was a tee shirt shop in Brooklyn in the 70’s and 80’s where this typeface orginated. The legend goes that an Old English / Blackletter typeface was simplified enough so it could be cut out of felt letters and ironed on to shirts and jackets of many a rapper and b-boy crew. From Grandmaster Flash to the Rocksteady Crew, Biz Markee and Joe Strummer visiting on tour with the Clash. I couldn’t find a digital version of this font anywhere so I decided to make one. With a focus on making similar replica shirts of that era - I didn’t include much for extra characters but I did throw in some alternate Y’s and T’s based on different versions I’ve seen (Do you LikeBig Audio Dynamite's “Y” or the version on Joe Strummmer' s “C. City Rockers” shirt?). Either way I hope you like the font.CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE PURCHASE PAGE

Takashi Murakami is an internationally prolific contemporary Japanese artist. He works in fine arts media—such as painting and sculpture—as well as what is conventionally considered commercial media —fashion, merchandise, and animation— and is known for blurring the line between high and low arts. He coined the term superflat, which describes both the aesthetic characteristics of the Japanese artistic tradition and the nature of post-war Japanese culture and society. Superflat is also used as a moniker to describe Murakami’s own artistic style and that of other Japanese artists he has influenced.
Whenever You Leave The Room
You gotta keep the step. You gotta limber up. You gotta loosen what you bolted down. You gotta use all you got. We know you’re tired, tired and scared. Happens to everyone, okay? Just don’t let your feet stop.
