Riverdale Hardcore started as a tribute to two of our favourite things – golden age comic books and punk music. We think that the clean-cut style of 1940’s comics works so well when illustrated and juxtaposed with our punk and hardcore aesthetic – and the tens of thousands of likes, comments and shares shows we’re not alone.
We’re always looking for ways to bring humour and message to our illustration and design work – and we love that our loving digs at a scene we’ve grown up in has really resonated with the rest of our community. It’s been especially amazing receiving love and kudos from the very bands we’ve immortalised and referenced in the illustrations!
