Pushead for Altamont

July 23, 2010 by altamont1001

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 1980s 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.

Still, Pushead is more than the iconic artist; in addition to being the singer and songwriter for legendary hardcore thrash pioneers Septic Death, he’s a record label owner and influential writer within the hardcore punk and thrash metal scenes. If there’s a lesson to be found in the trailblazing history and prodigious output of Pushead, it’s this: don't be afraid to reveal your inner person, because we're all made up of the same hardware inside.

For our Fall 2010 collection, Pushead contributed three entirely new and exclusive Altamont t-shirt designs.

"Altamont logo"

"Skull Twin View"

"Specimen"
