The logo above was created for the Dead Kennedys by Winston Smith, who also did much of the best of that bands album art. The Supreme skatewear company is debuting a new line of clothes featuring Smith’s art, without Smith’s permission. Yesterday, Bryan Ray Turcotte, author and publisher of the classic punk poster art book Fucked Up and Photocopied, posted this message on Facebook:
"Dear Supreme Skateboard Company …. FUCK YOU you fucking thieving motherfuckers."
Turcotte went on to add, “ This shit makes me sick…they Used Winston Smith art without his permission. They did the same fucking bullshit with my buddy Glen E. Friedman…SICK OF IT !!! it makes me sick to think that a SKATEBOARD company could become the fucking enemy!! They need to be stopped.”
Still wanna wear your cool Supreme togs now?
