I draw lyric portraits of some of my favourite musicians, and this here is one of my favourites. It is also the one that gets the most attention at shows and conventions, either because peopel know Slayer and this song, or because they don’t and are taken aback by the controversial lyrics on display.
I’ve been a big Slayer fan for years, so Kerry King was an obvious choice for a portrait. It was this piece that caught the attention of Life Of Agony vocalist Mina Caputo when I tweeted about it. She got in touch and commissioned a lyric portrait of her, featuring lyrics from Life Of Agony song ‘No One Survives’. Life Of Agony are one of my all time favourite bands, so to have Mina ask me for a portrait was a great honour.
