Rohan Harrison

Besides their music, I've always been impressed by Extortion cover artworks and T shirts, every single one of them. All those designs are done by Rohan Harrison, the singer of this angry Aussie band.
Strongly influenced by work of legendary Raymond Pettibone, Rohan Harrison developed recognizable  brutal and sick style which you just have to love. As he said in one interview that he "ends up carried away and drawing chainsaws and axes into everything". It's surely more than that.

Anyway, he hadn't been posting any new works on his blogs until recently, which reminded me of Extortion again and of course, to post some of artwork he did for the band here...

Here are some of Extortion artwork, the rest of the artwork he did for this one and another bands be sure to check out on his blog:

Chris Bavaria photography

I posted before some posters done by Evan Wivell from Mindset and now it's time for another guy from this great hardcore band, Chris Bavaria, who is a photographer.
Check out this new interview with him on ArtHash blog: ArtHash: Interview with Chris Bavaria

An of course his website:

There are many great pics from different shows and bands, but don't stop there, there are a lot of photos of places and people that are totally worth your time.

Bill Hauser

Bill Hauser is the guy who made my all time favorite T shirt design:
so I although I plan to interview him, I just couldn't wait to at least mention him here...

He also did the cover art for Catch Your Breath 7" by Our Turn, one of my favorite hardcore bands...

Of course, these are only my personal favorites. Looking generally at his artwork, there is a lot of truly amazing and unique stuff.
Here are some examples of his work, posters, covers, shirts...  but be sure to check out the rest of his works on these pages:
