Marilyn Manson

Originally was doing this sketch for another blog post. Decided to let this sketch stand on it’s own. It was intended to get the full ink and watercolor treatment, but the weather was too hot. Instead, I got a little lazy, sticking only with pencil. The thing is, many ‘traditional’ Goths from the ’80s and…

Poly Styrene (1957 – 2011)

Been on a kick lately. Listening to music from the late ’70s and early ’80s. Which means lots of classic New Wave and Punk Rock. Due to this, it was time for a portrait of Poly Styrene. For those who don’t know, Poly Styrene is best known as the lead vocalist for the seminal British…

In the U.S., Rammstein is known for one song, Du Hast. Personally, I’m sick of Du Hast, and the other single Engel, from…

Gary Numan

It’s an album I still play to this day. Mixing dystoptian influences with new wave sounds, Numan had an international hit with the…

Throbbing Gristle

  The last of a three post tribute to Genesis P-Orridge, who passed away on March 14th, 2020. P–Orridge had been battling leukemia for two years, so the passing wasn’t a surprise. S/he was 70 years old. As stated in previous posts, Genesis P-Orridge was many things. Among them, a poet, an artist in both…
