Angryblue (one word) is Justin Kamerer.
Being an artist for a living always seemed like one of those daunting and impossible things …like being a rock star. Despite that, through a ridiculous amount of work, I’m able to combine my love for punk rock, iconography, teeth, branding, illustration, design and all-around jackassery into what I love to do.
To date, I’ve had the opportunity to create album art, posters, identity design and various merchandise for The Acacia Strain, Facebook, Paul McCartney, Invisible Creature, Guns ‘N’ Roses, J!NX Clothing, Faith No More, Melvins, Slayer, Danzig, Pearl Jam and a handful of other great experiences along the way.
In 2005, Jeral Tidwell and I created Crackhead Press where the majority of the prints on this website were produced.
Because I’m a huge fan of profitless ventures, on April 1, 2012, I started Ouisch Clothing with Will Ragland; another sucker addicted to making ugly happen.
Coffins is a musical project you should look out for. We know there’s a significantly more popular Japanese band with the same name. We’re not really trying to compete with them. We just need an excuse to create.
In 2012, I had the opportunity to design and do the layout for a book titled, “Amigos de los Muertos” which was published byLast Gasp and features illustrations by David Lozeau, Jeral Tidwell, Roberto Jaras-Lira and myself.
Each day is a new opportunity. I love to work. I appreciate and lust for clever. [From angryblue.com]
Check out some of our personal favourites from Justin’s amazing portfolio.
We asked Justin a few questions about his work.
In middle school. being an introverted asthmatic kid will do that. once i started tying it together with a love for music, it grew from there.
I’m usually pretty bored with my most recent piece after a few days of finishing it. Though, popular ones are my ‘Faun’ and ‘Mother Earth’ pieces.
This can change depending on the day of the week. I think Aliens and Gremlins played a strong hand in my interest in the grimey. The most recent favorite is probably Cabin in the Woods. I thought it was really clever.
Probably do what i do on a weekly basis: Draw holed-up in my basement.
