This poster is divided in half horizontally with a photograph of "Bruce Lee / Martial Artist" in the top half and black and white graffiti text against a gray background in the bottom half. The two halves mirror each other so the bottom half is upside down when the top is right side up. There is a drawing of a man in the bottom right corner. The center of the page is black with two Oak Tree symbols and "Oakland Artistry" mirroring each other.

This was from a series of 10 posters celebrating local "patron saints and sinners" that were wheat-pasted all over town the year Oaklandish was founded as "a covert street art campaign designed to illuminate local history and the unique cultural legacy existing here in 'the Town’ “. [LMC]
