Greg Irons

Patrick Rosenkranz joined the inkstuds(for this installment, the Inkstuds consisted of myself and Robin Bougie, author of Cinema Sewer and editor of Sleazy Slice) for a discussion of the work of Greg Irons. Patrick authored the wonderful collection for Fantagraphics, You Call This Art?! A Greg Irons Retrospective. Greg was an accomplished creator in the classic underground scene, whose knack for finding the underlying filth was unmatched by his contemporaries. Greg was a bit of an outsider in the comix scene, and created some masterful work in the process. His psychedelic San Fransisco concert posters have left an emblematic legacy of stepping beyond the standard poster concepts. In his later life, he became a famous tattooist, use his own illustration techniques in this new artistic venture.
