“What is it about a black girl doing the same shit white men do that makes them feel like it is too much? How am I the only one being labelled as too aggressive in a genre that is all about aggression?”

I forgot to post these, but here’s a project I did a few weeks ago for Tools of the Trade. We were supposed to design three outfits for a musician, in watercolor. I chose Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex because she was super awesome and wore funky stuff.

Also I totally stole some ideas from diys that I thought she would have done, like the tie-dyed tights and a rookie flower crown with firecrackers.

Day 53: Continuing from yesterday, X-ray Spex were also on this mysterious punk mix. Fronted by Poly Styrene, the band also had a sax player! Up Yours Bondage is probably their best known song.
