Weird Art Month: Justin Bartlett

By Sam Reeve

I hope everyone is having a very metal Christmas! I’m sitting in my dark house listening to Ulver. ‘Tis the season!

Justin Bartlett’s art is completely appropriate for this blackest of days and I just can’t get enough of it. His style is inspired by that of Nick Blinko of Rudimentary Peni (an equally amazing artist that you should totally check out). Justin has done work for bands like SUNN O))), Gorgoroth, Job For A Cowboy and Earache Records, and has appeared in publications like Vice Magazine and Adbusters Norway. See more of his work here.

Day 23: Toshihiro Egawa

By Sam Reeve

Christmas draws nearer. With baby Jesus in mind, I give you the very brutal art of Toshihiro Egawa. Born in Osaka Japan in 1973, Toshihiro has done cover work for numerous metal bands, as well as designed shirts, shoes and other products. He’s one of the most influential cover artists in the world of heavy metal and it’s easy to see why: This guy’s stuff is totally awesome!
