Farron Loathing – Profile of an artist

In my last post, you may have noticed the overwhelmingly rad cover art for Lightning Swords of Death and Valdur’s split, pictured below.



The man responsible for this monstrosity also handles vocals for LSOD and as far as I’m concerned, he’s the best brutal artist around. He is also pictured below.


i know, right?


This is the art of Farron Loathing. Please enjoy.













































To see larger images (which is highly recommended) head over to his website or his myspace page. Hire him, work with him, worship him. But he’ll only work with your band if they are truly grim and brutal. Wait, maybe that’s not true…



Farron is king.

This stuff is absolutely great, especially the unearthing of the giant skeleton by the cultists.

agreed, that one's my fave. he drew that one up for pro skater ethan fowler, who owns a skateboard company called bummer high. ethan also sings and plays guitar for the doom band green and wood, who's album cover is also pictured. another rad dude to profile.

Beautiful illustrator, really classical style. That skeleton one caught my eye too. I'd love a poster of it. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, agreed, this is truly excellent work. Thank you for posting this; it's nice to see a freakish talent rear its rotten head into the light from time to time. Even the many beardophobes amongst you must wipe the drool from your baby-smooth chins and laugh at that Nachtmystium drawing.

Worthy as this work is, it won't hold up well as a tattoo. All the fine lines in there will blur into blobby, amorphous smudge. Great, great artwork, though.
