Metallica - Spit out the Bone

50.00

It goes without saying that the art of Metallica and 80's skate culture brought me into this world. I was thrilled to be asked to do a poster for the run of shows on their new tour. 

It's a tumultuous time in our nation right now and throughout their storytelling, Metallica has often written about the divide in power in the world.

This is an 18x24 5-color signed screenprint. The posters at the show were digital prints and my artist copies are the only screenprinted ones.

I've done so many digital illustrations this year, that once I came up with the rough comp, I wanted to roll my sleeves up and ink with a brush. It's been several years since I did that and wanted the mistakes my hand would make instead of just undoing everything when I drew it digitally. 

2.5 hours into this drawing process, I dropped my wet brush and it rolled unto the illustration. 

Instead of starting over, I just kept rolling with it and decided to clean it up in photoshop. 

The original ink and pencils have sold. Reach out if interested in other drawings.
