The Art / Artist:
When considering the question "What does it mean to be an Outlaw" Francesco was immediately transported into the world of old Hollywood Westerns. In true cinematic style, iconic images of desert vistas and a starlit sky provide the backdrop for his design.

A lonesome highway splits the cactus-laden landscape, bringing Francesco's vision into the present day where cars and motorcycles have replaced horses. His modern Outlaw is at home an the open road, surrounded by nature, barreling toward the horizon unbound by convention. The Outlaw mentality of today isn't about breaking the law or committing crimes, it's about connecting with the natural world and appreciating the beauty of our few remaining wide open spaces. It's about getting out there, and feeling... free.

Francesco Colombo (aka IVO Works) is an illustrator and graphic designer from Milan, Italy. A graduate of the Art Institute of Monza (Milan), Francesco's unique style places a heavy emphasis on hand-drawn black lines, detail, and simplicity. He describes hisself as an "Illustrator of Speed," with an aesthetic influenced by fuel, grease, and iron. In Francesco's words, his style is "An infinite road trip drawn on paper."

Bandits bandanas don't just look Great, they do good across the globe! For every bandana we sell, BANDITS DONATES 10% of the sales proceeds TO different charities chosen by each design's artist.

The Charity:
Greenpeace is an international non-profit organization that advocates for non-violent creative action to pave the way towards a greener, more peaceful world, and to confront the systems that threaten our environment. Through creative communication, independent campaigning, and peaceful protest, they work to protect natural spaces like the one depicted in Francesco's design, promoting solutions for a greener and more peaceful future.

Founded over 40 years ago, it has grown from a small group of dedicated activists to an international organization with offices in more than 50 countries. Their spirit and mission, however, remain the same as they continue to fight the most serious threats to our environment and planet.
