Jacob Bannon

You all know Jacob Bannon  from Converge, Deathwish Inc, Supermachiner and Irons, so there's absolutely no need to bother people with introducing him. Besides all his music projects, he's been doing art and design work for the bands since 1997 on his own or in the name of his art company Atomic! ID.
As Fight! magazine described, Jacob Bannon "is often credited with inventing the so-called skull with wings aesthetic that became so popular in the punk underground and mixed martial arts scenes that today knockoffs are available in stores like Target and Marshalls".

His unique style became truly recognized in the scene after he did legendary Jane Doe cover design for Converge.

Of dozens of album covers which Bannon did, you can see some I find the most interesting here, and for others, visit his website:
