ARTISTS, ART GALLERIES AND WEBSITES CERTIFIED AS COOL BY DEATHWISH INDUSTRIES!!!!
Pushead- Pushead is the most important artist in the life of Uncle Jack!!! As a young lad, Uncle Jack spent much time admiring Pushead art on skateboards and album covers for bands such as Metallica!!!! Back in the good old days when every skateboard had to have a skull on it!!!! Before most skateboard art started to suck!!!! Pushead is hands down the most radical artist of skulls!!!!!
Usugrow- Usugrow is Uncle Jack's second favorite artist of skulls!!! Like Pushead Usugrow does a lot of art for skateboards and album covers!!!!
ELECTRIC COFFIN- Uncle Jack highly endorses the Seattle based artist Duffy and his Electric Coffin Supply Company!!!! Duffy's collage based art is full of guns and old pulp art!!!- "Electric Coffin Supply Co. is an art based creative firm. Our slogan "Built from Death" embraces the notion of using salvaged materials and reworking old imagery to create something new. Everything we create is handmade and one of a kind."

This dude makes some of the coolest shit Uncle Jack has seen!!!!

W3 Collective- The W3 Collective are three dudes with mad stenciling skills from West Seattle!!! Their love of Rainier Beer is often evident in their work!!!!
