"I love working in old school New York signpainter lettering style. This poster take things a step further by focusing on vandalism, in a classic signpainter style and comes with matching stickers! What’s a vandal without a surface to mark? Both the print and sticker are super crisp and the colors are bold and vibrant. We all know that graffiti is daring and dangerous and I somehow wanted to capture this in a typography work. “The Vandal, Too Hot to Handle” is a lyric from ‘Protect Ya Neck’ by the Wu-tang Clan. My signpainter style lettering has a New York City flavor and the usage of a bold, hot red color just pops and is really loud. I wanted to create a piece that would shout! While I’m not a dedicated bomber these days, unlike some of my friends, I’m a notable piecer with great handstyles. This poster is dedicated to all the hardcore vandals in my life. It’s meant to celebrate their hardcore struggles and triumphs as mysterious, rebellious vandals who are truly “too hot to handle”. Their marks own the streets." - Queen Andrea
