Grew up in the Bay Area, went to loads of punk and thrash metal shows, and have been fortunate beyond belief, to have the legion of friends who have been so supportive of me since day one. Started my *ahem* art career by painting the logos of my fave bands all over my bedroom walls (and ceiling), then onto my friends army jackets. Grew it into logos and show flyers, then got a gig painting backdrops for bands (like Primus, Laaz Rockit, Legacy/Testament, Paris,Ruffians, etc...), which allowed me to learn new techniques, and hopefully, was a help for local bands. Whatever project they needed, I always said, "Sure, no problem"....then I would quickly try to learn how to do whatever it was. Purely design based on theft and fear...get motivation wherever you can find it. Found my way into shirt design, then pre-production, color seps, etc...can't stop learning. Working for bands like Metallica, Exodus, Ruffians, Motorhead, Slipknot, Green Day, Heaven and Hell, Black Label Society, etc....uh yeah, I'm a lucky guy, that's for sure. Armed with the best friends, the most patient clients, a mighty metal motivation...and with my lovely wife and 2 awesome kids at my side, I AM the luckiest guy on the planet. Hope you enjoy the site!
