tomer :: the concept for this URB cover was to combine the Wu-Tang Clan with the Birth of America. the group was at the origin of hip-hop and since "defined itself by brilliantly conjured and successfully united mythology". (B. Perkins, from the article).
looking at the iconic paintings that celebrated the union wasn't doing it for me, but I was inspired by these old envelopes designs with modest two color printing and millage of pathos.
