Interview with Punk Rock Artist Chris Shary

Chris Shary Descendents Art

You've seen his iconic Descendents artwork on limited edition watches and Coachella bags (and even Christmas sweaters), but how well do you know the guy behind the graphics?

Shary, who lives in California, got his start with band t-shirt art during high school in England:

It was pretty good seeing my artwork on people’s bodies, so from there on out, I started contacting bands that I liked. I thought that since I liked them, that maybe I could help them out by doing stuff, if they are into it too.

Interested in a Chris Shary original for your band? It's easier than you might think:

I think that art should be affordable. You should also be getting what you are worth. I have people who are contacting me every week to do t-shirts or album covers or single covers or whatever. It’s very, very easy. I’ll work with virtually anybody. I’m flattered when people want me to do things for them.

 New Noise Magazine calls Chris Shary "one of the most prolific punk rock artists since Raymond Pettibon." Check out the rest of their artist spotlight on Shary here.
