‘Dirty’ Donny grew up in Ottawa, Canada; he spent his youth skating, drawing and listening to punk and metal. He got his start designing album covers and posters for underground rock’s best, but became most widely known for his work for rock legends Metallica. In the Metallica designs, ‘Dirty’ Donny showed that there wasn’t anything he couldn’t paint on — not only did he create album art, but he also covered their offices in murals and even created a one-of-a-kind pinball machine.

His art embraces the Lowbrow, rock and skate circles with projects ranging from toys, skateboard decks, and guitar picks for companies such as Vans, Fender, Dunlop and Kid Robot, to record cover and poster art for bands like The Groovie Ghoulies and Mudhoney. Experience it all in his first ever monograph, featuring commentary by Metallica and other ‘Dirty’ Donny aficionados.
