Drummer: Mastodon

Friday, January 21

American drummer and vocalist Brann Dailor is best known as a member of heavy metal band Mastodon, but his talents go far beyond what he’s capable of behind a drum kit: he’s also quite impressive with a sketchbook. Growing up, his parents thought he was on track to become a visual artist, but he ended up going full bore into the drums at age 15. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the self-proclaimed clown enthusiast rediscovered his love of drawing through his daily clown sketches. Each day during lockdown, Brann illustrated his mood that day in clown form.

 

Self-proclaimed clown enthusiast Brann Dailor's COVID-19 pasttime comes to life on this Candy Apple Red lighter. Dailor expressed his mood through daily clown sketches during lockdown, and this particular moment in time is captured with our Color Image process.

Her artwork has also graced the cover of iconic Heavy Metal Magazine and an issue of Famous Monsters Magazine.
