The name Pushead is synonymous with the macabre, but it's not a death thing for the San Francisco-based illustrator - 'I see skulls as your inner person, as everyone has one.' His intricate and intense artwork first exploded in the early '80s on toxic, genre-defining album covers and t-shirts for bands like The Misfits, Metallica, Prong, Cavity, Rush, Soundgarden, Dr. Dre, Cocobat and Dr. Octagon, as well as skateboard brands Zorlac, Conspiracy, Zero skateboards, and Thrasher magazine, to name but a few. On top of that he's a record label owner and influential writer within the hardcore punk and thrash metal scenes. Teaming up with Altamont on three t-shirt designs for their Fall 2010 collection was a no-brainer given the apparel line is all about boundary-free expression! Read below for more.
