Jim Blanchard's Graphic Art 1982-2002 intersected with punk rock, grunge, psychedelia, alternative comics, “zine” culture, portraiture, and “girlie” art. The book gathers Blanchard’s art into a cohesive whole; one section assembles the best of Blanchard’s LP covers, posters and flyers from the hardcore punk era through grunge, including iconic Black Flag, Nirvana, and Soundgarden posters. Born in Texas, Jim Blanchard has lived all across the U.S.A. and in Norway. From 1982 1988, he was the editor and publisher of the punk rock/graphics zine Blatch. In 1987, he moved to Seattle, Washington, where he s been an illustrator, designer, and comic book artist, as well as an art director for Fantagraphics Books.
