HUF Collaborates With American Artist Mark Bodé
HUF proudly partners with American artist Mark Bodé—son of the late, legendary cartoonist, Vaughn Bodé—on a collaborative collection celebrating the family’s visual legacy.
Born in New York and based in San Francisco, Mark Bodé is best known for his work on the science fiction comic series Cobalt 60 and as the creator of the hit comic Miami Mice. His father, Vaughn Bodé, was a pioneer of underground comics that heavily influenced the 1980s hip hop and street art movements, with graffiti writers such as “Seen” and “Dondi” integrating Bodé characters into their pieces. Since his father’s passing, Mark has made it his mission to keep the Bodé style alive.
The collaborative collection includes original illustrations across a range of jackets, fleece, tees, hats, socks, and accessories, honoring the Bodé’s distinct vision. The collaboration retails from $10-120 and is set to release June 20th at HUF’s flagship stores, online shop, and finer retailers worldwide.
In addition to the collection, Mark Bodé has customized 12 limited-edition canvas ‘Painter’s Jackets’ with iconic Bodé artwork. The jackets will be available exclusively at HUF’s Los Angeles, New York City, and Tokyo flagship stores, as well as online.
