With posting this the next day after our government decides to shut down, and untimely because both sides are Republican, it continues to justify the meaning behind my artwork. I absolutely love the meaning behind this, and the concept can be change plenty times over. The pattern of course is the outline of the United States – including Alaska and Hawaii. The next level to this is that i decided to put an uneven split inside of the outline, because the other idea would be that it would definitely be in pieces. The other structure is that it was supposed to be a camouflage outline on top of that, but next time I won’t add so many different colors inside of it, keep it a basic three to four color scheme.
Now, there were plenty different colors used, and it was pretty random, I only wanted to make sure that overall they were evenly distributed, and that no particular color was overwhelming the others. The chosen colors were a Crystalline, Violaceous, Pearly Cloud, Sweet Alfalfa, Kel Kel’s Green, Vivid Blush, Inky Onyx, Chocolate, Semiprecious Topaz, Vivid Periwinkle, and Ceramic Ultramarine – all of which can be purchased in our store.
Now, the most controversial area of this custom jacket which sets the tone of the entire concept it that the title is The Divided States of America, Land of the Thieves, Home of the Slaves! The statement that I have made is nothing but the truth, and the whole truth. At this current moment, especially with the president that we have in office now, we are visibly The Divided States of America. Originally, the entire United States was once an entire country that belonged to the Native Americans, incorrectly labeled as Indians because of a preying settler called Christopher Columbus.
Christopher Columbus did not discover land, he plotted on the destruction of the origination of the land, and the demise of the Native Americans, it still breaks my heart til this day. Now, with knowing this, it is absolutely historically the Land of the Thieves, because they wanted a New World, and they took it over by an means necessary. With that destructive mindset, that included them needed people to work the land for free, they were going to rule them with weapons and power, so with that you have Home of the Slaves.
Now, when it comes to the lettering on the jacket, I learned another artistic trial and error, which is why you will see different versions of the exact same jacket. Both times Red was used for the words: Divided, thieves, and slaves – & Silver was used for the words: The, States of America, Land of the, and Home of the. The first time, it was all done in vinyl heat press, but there’s a special type of vinyl to be used when working with nylon. So, to just complete the jacket, I finished the jacket with shimmer, and cured it so it’s even more permanent.
