Ryan August over at I Want Your Skull asked me to take part in IWYS#5. I've been a fan of the zine since the beginning. We worked on a killer interview together and I designed a sweet 2 color pinstripe skull art print to be included with each copy.
I'll have some alternate skull print colorways available for sale soon on my website and on here. So stay tuned.
If you don't know about the I Want Your Skull zine, do yourself and your eyes a favor and go and snag a copy. It's probably the best visual zine out there. Tell Ryan I sent ya. Cheers!

So, I haven't gotten around to posting close-up pics of my Scavenger's box design, well, because I've been just too darn busy to take any pics. Sorry. Jack at Vinyl Pulse has some up in his review of Kathie's new toy. Reposting them here. Enjoy!
It's always nice to find somebody who's willing to adorn their skin with your art.
I happened to find this pic by chance on someone's MySpace profile. I don't know the fella and didn't know he had my piece tattooed on him. One thing I DO know however, he obviously has SUPERIOR taste in art. I look forward to being "befriended" by him and getting to know more about the guy who wears some of my art on his body.
Oh, and just in case you don't remember, it's the art is from my Ol' Nasty bomber panel.
