The Misfits are a punk rock revelation and a band that have mesmerized me from my first introduction to them in 1985. The Misfits art is pure alchemy genius and the best example of remixing marginal subculture imagery into a cohesive cult brand in history. I remember making my first homemade stencil of the Misfits fiend skull back in the mid ‘80s and how proud I was of how it looked sprayed on a t-shirt. It was fun to revisit stenciling the Misfits imagery and is a reminder that my entire career is built on do-it-yourself empowerment! – Shepard
