The ‘Henry & Glenn Forever’ Art Show Deepens Our Love of Rock Bromance
Further proof that neither rock nor love ever truly fade away, Los Angeles curators La Luz de Jesus Gallery hosted Igloo Tornado members Tom Neely, Gin Stevens, Scot Nobles and Levon Jihanian this past Friday in conjunction with an art exhibit and book signing for Henry & Glenn Forever, the satirical comic that centers around an imaginary romantic relationship between Henry Rollins (Black Flag) and Glenn Danzig (Misfits).
The exhibit featured pieces from the original creative team, as well as other notable artists like Coop, Johnny Ryan, and more. Check out some of our favorites after the jump, which range from parodies of Batman and Star Wars to photo-realistic depictions of the infamous rockstars.
