I'm stranded at LAX en route to Kirk Hammett's Fear FestEVIL in San Francisco, where we are showing off the paintings of Clive Barker amidst Kirk's museum of horror memorabilia.
Clive has a lot of musicians who appreciate him, and top of the list has to be Adam Jones of the band TOOL.
Adam is a collector of Clive's work- and even better, an incredibly nice guy. He's a rare blend of talent, brilliance, enthusiasm, and gentle insight, and hearing him talk about art reveals why his own success as an artist isn't an accident.
Adam is a massive creative force himself, and in addition to his musical talents is a gifted artist in multiple mediums.
These tour posters were illustrated and designed by Adam, and to make them even more special they were autographed by all four band members.
And is if that wasn't enough, Adam took some time yesterday to draw on each poster to make it something absolutely unique to this campaign to raise funds for archiving and sharing Clive's inspirational artwork.
We're floored by this gift, and hope these beautiful Adam Jones artworks excite you as much as they do us!!!
Thank you, Adam, for a very personal and thoughtful contribution.
