Michael Murphy
Having worked in the poster art scene for nearly a decade, Michael Murphy has made a name for himself in the world of rock; creating promotional works for a variety of bands and shows, from no-names to big names. His love of the kind of heavy metal and punk rock music that sends Televangelists into a frothing frenzy provides the perfect inspiration for the art that he creates. He has created limited-run, one-of-a-kind works for Kyuss, the Forgotten, 22 Jacks, High on Fire, Swingin' Utters, Youth Brigade, Nashville Pussy, the Golden Gods and Halford to name but a few. Besides working for individual bands, Michael has also built a strong clientele with a number of clubs and record labels, including Goldenvoice, Straight Up Productions, and SideOne Dummy! and BYO Records.
Michael still draws, separates and prints all of his works by hand in the same spider infested shop where he began so many years ago. While the subject matter of his works vary, the themes remain consistent: Danger; booze, voodoo, evil, buxom women who could kick your ass, the triumph of the underdog (a turkey attacking a housewife with a turkey baster for a Thanksgiving show!?!), and a foreboding that could only be compared to the first day of elementary school.

The themes are dangerous, the designs are scandalous, and your mother would NOT approve. But, hey, that's really what rock and roll is all about, ain't it?
