A brief brand history

I created the original digital drawing that would become "Dismantle" in June, 2020 on a digital app called AutoDesk Sketchbook. I had just bought my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 2 as in investment in myself. I made this drawing sitting on the couch in the living room of a my 3 bedroom apartment on Fairbun Rd. on the Westside of Atlanta, GA. It was on the heels of the murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, but before the murder of Rayshard Brooks, which occurred in the A, not far from where that apartment was....

I was feeling “black power-ish” and I wanted to make the iconic Black Power Fist my own🏽. At the time I was studying George Bridgman, an artist specializing in anatomy so the drawing is actually a "study"of my own hand. After I finished the drawing I scribbled “Dismantle white supremacy” on the side. It was the first thing that came to mind.
