I’ve recently been sucked into watching Sons of Anarchy (which, if you’re unaware, is a series about gun-running biker gangs in California) and got to thinking about their club logo which consists of a reaper character wielding a gun with a scythe mounted on it who is clutching a bomb emblazoned with the anarchy logo. It’s a bit overkill but it’s still a strong logo.
I’ve decided that if I had a biker gang we’d be in the illegal art game – counterfeits, art thefts, black market sales, demanding protection money from galleries and street artists and that kind of thing. Obviously we’d need a crest for paint splattered biker jackets and this bad lad would be it. I’m still working on the name of my biker gang. I quite like Wu Tag clan but feel that Rza and Gza would probably have something to say about that…
