Killer Cook

This apron is my reaction to the tuxedo shirt, humourously worn by a guy who prefers comfortable clothing over conforming to traditional norms. It demonstrates how I would feel more comfortable defending myself against the assigned female expectation to perform kitchen duties for others. A black, retro style apron was designed to signify rebellion of traditional female gender roles. The stenciling was inspired by Banksy, a politically minded graffiti artist. It implies that I was defensive yet humourously in the mood to hurt anyone who tried to make me conform.
