From hell's heart I stab at thee by scumbugg
From hell's heart I stab at thee
"Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee. Sink all coffins and all hearses to one common pool! and since neither can be mine, let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied to thee, thou damned whale! Thus, I give up the spear!"
Moby Dick, Herman Melville

I just realized that I never posted this screen print I did last year. I've been way too busy with real life obligations. This is available in my store as an awesome screen printed poster. Pearlescent metallic inks! Oh yes.
So, I've made some of my old artworks available as shirts and phone cases over at Design By Humans. Thats right, you can now either use my art to warm and hide your clammy, pale torso flesh, or press it against the side of your head to better communicate with otherworldly entities. Here are some of the designs available. Check out my store when you get a chance!

Matt Verges
United States
Matt Verges (aka Scumbugg) is an illustrator, graphic designer, and printer that has been working in the underground punk and metal music scene for over a decade. In recent years, his clients have included international bands, record labels, and clothing labels, including Fright Rags, Earache Records, Gama Bomb, Double or Nothing Records, DeKay Clothing, The Desecrators, Salvador, Impaled, The Getaway Plan, Oceano, Real Deal, Serial Killer Calendar, and many more.

Taking inspiration from life, death, and the world in between, his artworks find a balance between the natural and surreal. With a dreamy quality equal parts Mucha and Pushead, he creates a world where the stereotypical skulls and gore of Metal album covers become strangely beautiful.

He currently lives with his friends and his cat, above a 30 year old union printshop in Denver, Colorado.
