    John Baizley

    Hey,

    I wanted to share with you this very underground/unknown yet absolutely amazing artist. His name is John Baizley. He hasn't done much work and he doesn't really have much advertisement. I found out about him because he did all of the amazing album covers for the post-metal band Baroness (who I saw open for Opeth last time, I'd recommend them for fans of Mastodon, Isis, Cult of Luna, etc). He's from Savannah Georgia (same place as Baroness) and he works with appears to be inks and watercolors.

    His myspace:

    Baroness' myspace:

    His art:

    Just to let you guys know that this artist John Baizley is actually also the vocalist/guitarist of Baroness, which is why he does all of their artwork. The last image, the blue one Kvick posted, is the album cover art of Baroness' new album due out this October called the 'Blue Record'.

    He also has contributed artwork for quite a few other bands as well including Kylesa (Static Factions, already posted), Pig Destroyer, Darkest Hour, Skeletonwitch, Black Tusk amongst others.

    I found this site as I was looking up more info on him actually, signed up specially to post this, but being a budding artist myself I may just stick around...

    Here's some others of Jon Baizley work;

    Yep I knew that. I had no idea that Baroness was releasing a new album though, I can't wait to hear that!

    They have the first couple of tracks (An intro and then one proper song) up on their Myspace player already. It's pretty cool.

    Well the man is honestly much more artistically talented than musically IMO hahaha. Their bassist Sunny is the most talented member of Baroness, if I must choose.

    I feel fairly silly because when I saw Baroness I didn't know that Baizley was in the band and I gave them my card and said something like "I love your art already but if you ever want a change..."

    I'm going to try to get what ever covers he has done on vinyl so I have big prints of them. I wish there was a list or whatever of album covers he has designed somewhere. I guess I could just send him an email I guess. He needs a website.
