Paul Stottler

Class today will be about a famous Metal artist who began his career in the 80's. Most of you have heard about Pushead, Metallica's arist. The Bootlegers spawned Paul Stottler, who became Sacred Reich's artist. Who can forget the cover of Surf Nicaraugua?? I still have my shirt!!
I met Paul when he was a teenager, doing a bit of artwork for Sacred Reich--fliers and such. In no time, he was accosted by every local club, concert, or band to design the madness of his fliers. His art was razor sharp!
Paul graduated to tattoo artist and relocated to LA. Before he moved, I got my first tattoo, a demon on a Death Angel flier Paul had drawn. Check it out below! Paul also did some work on Dave Grohl I heard thru the grapevine.
Respect for old school fliers and Mad Hatter artists!!
