It was such a treat for me to see works from the legendary designer Jon Van Hamersveld in person at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.  Just to name a few things that have made my world a better place, Van Hamersveld has designed the following album covers:  “Exile On Main St.” by the Rolling Stones, “Magical Mystery Tour” by The Beatles, “Eat to the Beat” by Blondie, “Hotter than Hell” by Kiss and “Skeletons in the Closet” by the Grateful Dead.  In addition, he’s designed the iconic logo for Fatburger and the movie “Endless Summer” and the list of amazing accomplishments goes on and on and on.

Designed by Jon Van Hamersveld.

The exhibition at the Pacific Design Center is a nice overview of his career.  prints, posters and books are for sale.  You won’t want to miss this one!

Harley Davidson presents The Art of Rebellion

Harley Davidson presents The Art of Rebellion

On October 17, 2009, I attended the one-night only Art of Rebellion art show presented by Harley Davidson.  The night featured art by Art Chantry, Brian Ewing, Dirty Donny, Jon Van Hamersveld, Harpoon, Derek Hess, Frank Kozik, Lindsey Kuhn, Tara McPherson, The Pizz, Adam Wright and Steven Stone.  In addition to cool art, free food and wine, we were treated to a DJ mixing classic rock all night long.  Where else on earth would you hear “Five To One” by the Doors mixed into “Waiting for the Sun,” mixed into “Whole Lotta Love,” by Led Zeppelin!  If you become a fan of Dark Custom on Facebook, you could win the Art of Rebellion poster pictured above, signed by artist Frank Kozik.  You can find out more about the show here.

See my (and Gail’s) favorite pieces from the show after the jump.
