This cozy hoodie is a limited-edition collaboration between Technically Speaking and artist Dakarai Akil. Dakarai is a Los Angeles-based collage artist and illustrator from Cleveland, OH. Primarily working in collage and design, he has self-published three art books that catalog works created between the span of 2014 to 2021. When we got together on this project, we envisioned to have a composition that represents community and the importance of a foundation lifting each other up or collaborating as a collective. It illustrates a little bit of my story and not forgetting where I've come from. This product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making products on demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making thoughtful purchasing decisions!
