The May/June 2000 Issue of Juxtapoz featured a Pushead cover/article by CR Stecyk III.

The eight page article gives a basic rundown of Pushead’s early years and features color and b&w art; all stuff that you’ve seen before/since but a nice little primer for folks who may not be familiar with Pus’s bio.

“One night, Rick Griffin and Stanley Mouse came by my house and made the request to take a look at my originals. When I pulled them out, the were in excited shock. I was dumbfounded by this and asked them why. They explained to me that they were surprised tat there was no white out/white paint on any of them. I told them that when I saw artwork like theirs, I saw how it was reproduced, not how it originated.
And that I taught myself to draw it like that. If I ever made a mistake, I would start all over just to retain that look”- Pushead.

One thought on “Juxtapoz

  1. That Juxtapoz could be my favourite magazine all time. I love it.

    I’m just discovering your blog, seems great: thanks!
    Keep the post coming. Is hard to find good images & texts of Pushead.

    Greetings from Caracas,
