Swackett salutes Uma Thurman, an American actress and model. She has performed in a variety of films, from romantic comedies and dramas to science fiction and action films. (born April 29)
Thurman is peeped here in her roll from Pulp Fiction, a 1994 American neo-noir dark comedy crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. It stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman.
Swackett salutes Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan brand. Air Jordan is brand of basketball shoes, athletic, casual, and style clothing produced by Nike. The original Air Jordan sneakers were produced exclusively for Michael Jordan in early 1984, and released to the public in late 1984
The silhouette of Michael Jordan served as inspiration to create the “Jumpman” logo — which became the inspiration for one of our very first Swackett Easter eggs.
