|"Swans of Black Ash"|
Fair enough! I get called Wichita a lot.
Well first & foremost I'd like to say I'm a huge fan of your work. The "Swans of Black Ash" design you did for Kylesa is one of my favorite band shirts!
Who doesn't love Eddie? haha

Hahahahaha! That's brilliant!!!
Do you have any plans to tour this year?
Red Fang! One of my favorite bands, one of my favorite patches.
I always look forward to getting out on tour.
Other than High on Fire and the bands mentioned above, you've done designs for Yob, Sleep, Torche, Lamb of God and multiple others. What band(s) would you like to work with in the future? Iron Maiden perhaps?
Iron Maiden would be tops, but a close second would be Neurosis. They've been my favorite band since the 80's. Scott told me that I would be doing some art for them soon, so i'm closer to that dream.
That's awesome! Last but not least, what have you been listening to while you illustrate?
That all sounds great! I love Black Math Horsemen. My poor girlfriend, I've been insisting on listing to the Smiths, Wire or Hole while painting. hahahah
Hole fucking rules!
Thank you so much Santos! I really appreciate you taking the time to talk to me.
