CCR en Espanol, Urdu, and Arabic

Two years ago I illustrated the “If an agent knocks” booklet for the Center for Constitutional Rights in NYC. It’s a historic document meant for activists, cultural workers, and regular citizens standing up for their rights. Because the US government and intelligence agencies often watch, surveille, arrest, torture, and even kill folks who step out of line, documents like these are important. In January they asked me to redo the cover which was translated into Arabic, Urdu, and Spanish. This was challenging because of the language barrier, but a very rewarding process. I worked with art director Qa’id Jacobs again who is an incredible artist/dj in his own right. We also worked with graphic designer Ahmed Foula who checked the word translation and they all did an incredible job. If you want a book, comment or email me and i’ll send you one.

If an Agent Knocks – Center For Constitutional Rights

A project for the Center For Constitutional Rights. As I write this, im slappin’ (listening to) that Zion-I & Grouch-Heroes in the City of Dope.Listen to the song, that should give you an idea to the feeling behind the artwork here. I started this project about a year ago after I came off the TYS mural tour. I was blessed to work with a great art director Mr. Qa’id Jacobs. Listen, this is the first time i had to go through hella (many good) changes in order to finish a project.I thought I would show you some of the process. The first image you see is one of the original posters, my job was to take the idea and remix it.The finished product can be seen with the CCR logo hereIf you or someone you know has been or is being harrased by Federal agents, please refer them to this list as it contains some useful information about your rights and how to condcut yourself if that situation arises…..Trust Your Struggle!Also, I want to give a shout out to my homie Tiffany Eng who took photos of the final piece for me. Much love Tee feezy!….
