Way back as a student – and metaller of course – I used my creative skills to good effect to adorn my own leather jacket. As a budding make-up FX artist – I chose Dick Smith’s beautiful work on young actress Linda Blair, who played the grumpy child in the 1973 comedy classic The Exorcist.
I thought – after all these years – why not stick it on the interweb for others to see.
Who knows – I may be tempted to wield a paintbrush again and dig out my set of Acrylics.
My first ever jacket was for a mate called Adam Bastard – who worked for Kent County Council I think. He was a Megadeth fan and wanted So Far So Good So What – so I duly obliged and a hobby was born!
