I worked on a stamp.
The United States Postal Service stamp program has been honoring and celebrating the people, events and cultural milestones unique to the history of the United States since 1847. That’s 173 years worth of history. And I couldn’t be more honored – or school-kid excited – to be a part of it. There are few more iconic or far-reaching ways to deliver an image –a holiday card delivered to San Francisco from Omaha, a congratulatory graduation card sent from Washington DC to Santa Fe.
The 2020 class of USPS Forever stamps includes 4 hip hop stamps, honoring the contribution of this musical genre to our collective American culture. I worked on these motion-filled images with outstanding art director, Antonio Alcalá who highlighted them with bright colors, each representing a pillar of hip hop, MCing, b-boying, DJing and graffiti.
I worked on a stamp *4 stamps – and it’s a pretty cool feeling.
