Shawn Kerri

Shawn Kerri is an artist who is mostly recognizable by her Circle Jerks and Germs stuff, and of course, Kit Colson comics in CARtoons magazine.
Here is some of her work I find the most interesting...

Also, I bumped into this cool drawing and the story behind it on some forum.

She was living in PB at the time I had this done . She was the one who basically created the skanking man for the Circle Jerks . In the 70's she was one of the main artists for the magazine " Cartoons" as well as a bunch of other mags that featured muscle cars and customs .

I don't know the details of her life at the time but she was pretty big in the punk scene as well drawing flyers and cartoon art for bands and the like .

I met her one day while she was wandering around the beach and recognized her from some tattoos she had . We started talking and she said that she had old original art she was liquidating due to not working for a while or something . I instantly bought a few pieces and asked her if she did requests . . . yep she did . I had her do a few and then it struck me , have her paint me , tattooing on the circle jerks guy . Sweet idea , and even sweeter end result .

That's me tattooing the circle jerks guy , talking shit about punk rock and stuff as if we're tight bros . . .

classic .
