Skinner Art Book UNLEASHING THIS FRIDAY!
After Skinner, myself and Lamour Supreme blessed San Antonio with a 100-foot long InHuman Centipede , the Dieties have descended down on our eyeballs and have forced The Unspoken darkness to shovel gravel and blood-fire into our sinuses. In other words, unearthly illustrator SKINNER has a new book being released online THIS FRIDAY, FEB 3 at ZEROFRIENDS.com!
And Skinner himself will be on hand, armed, and in person at the ZEROFRIENDS OAKLAND Retail store on Saturday, Feb 4 from 2-3PM for the official release/selling/signing/high fiving event in which anyone who buys the book in person on Saturday will be eligible for a FREE "BUTCHER KINGS" Zine in addition to the free 8"x 10"! Full details at the bottom of this post.
Published by Gingko Press & Zerofriends, the book is completely insane in the best way possible. But don't take MY word for it, because I am biased, as Skinner and I trade illegal skin and stab each other with WarSwords and Ice-Lasers on a regular basis. Instead, see what some kind folks are saying about this mystical new art book:
"Remember that metal-influenced dude that sat next to you in class that, Instead of working on whatever stupid school assignment was handed out for the day, he drew goblins and wizards with snakes for eyes? Well, Skinner is that dude, only he MASTERED that shit." - BRIAN POSEHN
"Skinner's wild world of demonic art reminds me that it's OK to look at scary creatures in a sensual manner. Yumm." - Andy Milanokis
"He's no Picasso!" - Dana "Master Shake" Snyder, Aqua Teen Hunger Force
"I just met Skinner but I have assessed in that brief encounter that he's on the right track. Taking things in stride and going along for the ride. That's the only way to play it." - James "DALEK" Marshall
"Skinner is a psychopathic psycho. That's the worst kind, you know..." - Larry Alberts. High School Art Teacher
"EVERY MAN IS MY ENEMY" The Art Of SKINNER
172 Pages, 250 Illiustrations & Photos.
8.5" x 11". Hardcover.
Each copy is hand-signed by SKINNER
And as BONUS, The first 300 books that are purchased online at ZEROFRIENDS will come shipped with a FREE 8'x10" signed & numbered giclee print from Skinner!
So, just to match Skinner's artwork, I seemed to have jammed way too much awesomeness into this post, so lets sort things out a little bit:
1. SKINNER'S new art book "Every Man Is My Enemy" will be released online at Zerofriends.com starting this Friday, Feb 3.
2. The first 300 people to order his book will receive a FREE signed and numbered print from Skinner.
3. On SATURDAY, Feb 4th, Zerofriends will be celebrating the release of Skinner's new book at the ZEROFRIENDS OAKLAND STORE from 1-5PM and Skinner will be on hand signing and selling his book from 2-3PM.
489A 25th St.
Anyone who buys the book at this in-store event will also get a FREE 'Butcher Kings" zine along with the free 8"x10" Print.
Hopefully this all makes sense, but if not, just BUY THE BOOK IT'S INCREDIBLE!!!!!!
Here is a peek at the inside of the book. See you online this FRIDAY YO!
