The Damned: The Graveyard Chronicles

Well, this is exciting!

A few months ago, Plastic Head Music contacted me, asking if they could use my Bride of Frankenstein illustration for a "punk album" they were putting out. I said sure, not thinking much about it after that. Little did I know that the band was The Damned, a legendary group that has been around since the 70s, and were contemporaries of The Sex Pistols and The Clash!

Not being familiar with them (totally squaresville, Daddy-O), I posted this graphic on my Facebook page, not guessing it would explode with comments from friends who count The Damned as one of their favorite bands, in disbelief that someone they know did the art for one of their albums.

Needless to say, I'm proud of the piece, and how it was used here. Plastic Head was great to deal with, and my only hope is they release this on vinyl so I can see my work all nice and big. I don't think there's a release date yet, but I will definitely announce it once there is.
