UNARMED is a continuing art project designed to use raise awareness of the epidemic of excessive police force against black and brown people in the United States. I designed the first UNARMED jersey in 2013, and actually produced several in late 2014.

Though UNARMED is concept art for a series of “products”, I do not want to profit in any way from the killings of black and brown people by the police. Rather, the goal is to get this message onto the streets and in the faces of the people who perpetrate this violence against undeserving people every day.
