Good Ideas Thru Bad Living - The Art of Billy Perkins

Longtime Austin native Billy Perkins was drawing by age 4, inspired by the comic book art of Buscema, Colan, Kirby, Steranko and more. Other artistic influences are album cover art, 60s psychedelic poster art, and of course from the music itself. Perkins' style is derived equally from these influences, at times combining elements of them all. Perkins has designed for Widespread Panic, Cheech & Chong, Cheap Trick, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, Metallica, Foo Fighters, and many more. His work has been published in Art of Modern Rock, Swag 2, Classic Rock Magazine and others. BFA in Commercial Art 1987, Texas State University Multiple award winner: Austin Music Industry Awards
