Kelly O is My New Favorite Artist

Posted by on Mon, May 6, 2013 at 2:59 PM

APPARENTLY, our very own Kelly O could have had a career in drawing portraits instead of snapping them. Upon learning the news that Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away last Thursday, she posted the sad announcement with a link that went to the best high school rock illustrations ever...

I can't believe I didn't see her illustrated Slayer article when it ran, but HOLY WHOA THOSE DRAWINGS! Kerry King and Tom Araya look pretty babely (as do all those other rock doodles!)—but where is the belated Hanneman?

I say, to commemorate his passing, Kelly O should draw Jeff Hanneman—shading and all—for a proper RIP to one of her favorite bands' guitarists. Do it Kellz! I'll buy you the biggest fro-yo!

Twist my arm! Ha.

Okay, so maybe this early Jeff, to match the other drawings?……
