ABOUT THE ART
"The Misfits are a punk rock revelation and a band that have mesmerized me from my first introduction to them in 1985. Being asked to do a Misfits 40th anniversary logo recently was a huge honor; The Misfits art is pure alchemy genius and the best example of remixing marginal subculture imagery into a cohesive cult brand in history.
From horror films, comics, serials, and B-movies the Misfits culled, cut, pasted, inked, and crafted possibly the most recognizable and enduring punk iconography ever. The thing that I love about the classic Misfits imagery is that it is well designed, but has a do-it-yourself charm that is organic and unfussy. I tried to channel this history through my artistic sensibility in the 40th logo and accompanying poster, etc poster.
I’ll be seeing you again!"
