  Sean Wyett - Art & Design

Not one to refer to himself as an "artist", Sean’s work speaks for itself. He has been drawing since he was a kid, and doing it for a living for over 20 years.

He started out doing flyers for punk bands, then moved on to album covers and T-shirt designs. He also brought some of the first punk/alternative music to Boise with his Mutant Pop show KBSU in the early 80’s. From there he freelanced in San Francisco, honing his individual, highly disturbed, graphic style while working at Thrasher Magazine (there is an old issue of Thrasher floating around with a feature on him – if you can find it, you won’t believe the bad hair!!). He eventually found himself at the famous worldwide merchandising company, Winterland.

His list of clients includes some of the biggest names in the music and entertainment industry, such as The Misfits (the legendary back cover of Legacy of Brutality), Ozzy Osbourne, Disney, Madonna, Primus and Kiss. In addition to tattooing, he currently does logo design, T-shirts, and other art for bands and various northwest companies and charities.
