I just picked up the latest issue of Terrorizer and discovered that my drawing for Darkthrone has been voted #3 in the 2007 Reader's Poll for 'Best Cover Art'! And while we're on the subject, does anyone remember the great Black Uniforms song called 'Fuck Off And Die'??

The February 2008 issue of Metal Maniacs refers to my Darkthrone art as one of three "curveballs" hurled at the band's fans. According to writer Nathan T. Birk, the F.O.A.D. cover art was "released to resounding groans the world over...[with] mid 80's Broken Bones written all over it, which is perhaps being kind" (zing!). He later goes on to say, "...when the F.O.A.D. artwork was revealed...whoa. An even greater avalanche of derision..." (ouch!). This is perhaps the most scathing review of my art since I discovered this little gem on some message board a few months ago:

"Oh Dennis Dread. Interesting that all the gravestones have Hebrew on them."

First of all: the gravestones don't have hebrew on them. Second: I suspect there is an insult here but I can't tell if I've been accused of being a "jew" or a "nazi". I have no idea what this comment means. But it's funny. And it has launched another CONTEST! That's right, jews. Your assignment is to draw your favorite dictator, tyrant, or general enemy of humanity (real or imagined). The best drawing will be displayed in this year's ENTARTETE KUNTS exhibit and the winner will receive their very own DESTROYING ANGELS t-shirt (priceless!). All entries must be received by April 1st, 2008 (April Fool's Day).
