Statement

I've created a fictional Skinhead subculture (Candy Skins!) that subscribe only to thier abilities behind the sewing machines. They make all thier own clothing and mix all thier own drinks...which drink depends on which outfit! There are three different kinds of Candy Skins: "Fresh Wraps" have not made a perfect uniform yet. "Candy Skins" Have, "Hard Candys" are the elders of the subcult and decide the next seasons colors and exceptable details.

I make and show the residue of thie subculture: Quilts, Uniforms, Badges, Croquis, Gifts, etc
