REBEL 8 founder Joshy D. met Mike Giant in the late 1990’s in San Francisco’s then bustling graffiti scene. Joshy ran the popular graffiti website, HiFiArt, and Giant was one of the city’s most notorious writers. Years later, after an organic friendship developed between the two, Joshy approached Giant about creating a handful of t-shirt graphics. In 2003, with just $500, Joshy printed a small run of tees and sold them out of a messenger bag around the city. REBEL 8 was born.

Many graphics within the REGEL 8 product line are hand illustrated, with no computer generated enhancements or manipulations. The man behind this original artwork at REBEL 8 is the legendary tattoo and graffiti artist Mike Giant.
