On September 17, 2015, Heavy Metal presented the blacklight prints of Barry Geller and Jack Kirby’s Lord of Light at Meltdown Comics on Los Angeles. Those weren’t the only glowing masterpieces on display that night—a selection of images by other three artists made the scene as well.
“Dirty” Donny Gillies was one of the three, and his blacklight posters, paying homage to pinball, hot rods and other cool stuff, are dazzling eye candy suitable for framing. Sharing wall space with Jack “King” Kirby is an honor for any artist, but that’s not the only highlight of Dirty Donny’s year. He also created an official Metallica poster that went on sale earlier this month—and sold out more or less instantly.
Based on the success of his Metallica poster, Donny tells us, he’s taken on another secret project. He continues to create pinball machine art and is putting together his second book for a planned Fall 2016 release.
