Boneface. The name fits the art its maker creates. The illustrations of Boneface are bold and rebellious — the nihilistic spittle of a fun-loving vagrant. Boneface’s drawings are bright and detailed in mischievous gore. The attitude of underground skate videos mixed with the winks and shock of an eighth-grader’s homemade comic book. The artist behind the Boneface moniker hides within the alias and that’s just fine. Who needs a real name in an industry of hype and reputation. Bonface isn’t going for sentimental honesty, but the buzzsaw shriek of punk rock and comic books, videogames and low-rent horror flicks.
Boneface was picked to create the cover artwork and collateral art for the band Queens of Stone Age album ‘…Like Clockwork.’ He brought in an element of fright and mystery to his already mischievously mannered paintings striking a direct hit on the tone of the album.
Boneface is an artist working within the major advertising complex, creating innovative pieces for brands, bands, and videogames. His aesthetic is that of the detailed harbinger of a drunken apocalyptic rave.
His own biography sums up his approach to a creative career-best —
‘The things that make me right for this job…maybe they’re the same things that make me wrong for everything else.’
