Text reads: Volume One Intro by Sway Calloway. Do it for the culture. URBANIME Mixtape. Chris and Timbuk2’s resident “make it happen guy”, Steven Fisher, started collaborating and integrating URBANIME and Timbuk2, based on a shared commitment to furthering culture and community.  

So, we did what we are good at–we threw a party (back when we could safely do so). We turned our Manhattan Shop into a comic book signing party and gave glimpses into URBANIME’s first comic book.

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, URBANIME has only sped up. Last month, they launched their latest release, which is a comics & culture zine called Mixtape Volume 1. They celebrated the launch with a Twitch live stream party, featuring the Bay’s own Sway Calloway. The mixtape is more than just a comic book. It’s an experience that expresses black and brown culture within the comic book experience. It’s influenced by hip-hop, fashion, and the best black and brown creators around.

In celebration of Black History Month, we are proud to introduce URBANIME to the Timbuk2 community and give a shout out to this collective that is building a legacy around the intersection of culture and comics. We are honored to continue working with this crew of creatives that think big and lift people up.

While Black History Month ends on February 28, the journey is just beginning. Keep an eye out for more drops coming your way. Follow Timbuk2 and URBANIME on Instagram to stay up to date.
