Beasts and Priests collects for the first time more than ten years' worth of pointillist portraiture of the world's most legendary scene-makers as rendered by HATE collaborator and Glam Warp creator Jim Blanchard. Much of the black-and-white ink work here has previously seen print in some of the world's better alternative magazines and news weeklies, and the large colour portraits made with brightly coloured industrial stickers have appeared in the more popular art galleries of North America, such as Seattle's critically important Roq La Rue gallery.
Portrait subjects include: Duke Ellington, Redd Foxx, Frances Farmer, Patti Page, Shane MacGowan, Lemmy Kilmister, Ron Jeremy, Marcel Proust, Frank Sinatra, Nell Carter, Dean Martin, Tom Jones, Curtis Mayfield, Terry Southern, Jackie Gleason, Amos Milburn, Willie Nelson, Henry Kissinger, Courtney Love, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot, Mil Mascaras, Andy Warhol, Lee Marvin, Isaac Hayes, Johnny Cash, Bon Scott, Lee Hazlewood, Raymond Chandler, Ennio Morricone, Bill Hicks, Lenny Bruce and Jim Goad.
