Hud’s Artwork

A major feature of Rip It Up at the time, and even to this day, was Hud’s unique artwork.  Only ever happy sat at his drawing board with Rotrng pens and a can of Tennents Super lager, he cranked out sheets of weird drawings whose meaning was only ever really known to him. 

I posted some recent images on the main blog page, and the response was quite startling [people liked the drawings, as opposed to the usual response of wanting to punch him].  So I thought a page should be dedicated to some of the artwork that has graced our pages over the years.  Contact us for any offers [frames can be provided] or commissions.

Above: Cartoon, fuck knows what it means, 3-Dee fanzine, some time on 1992.  Probably the product of Tennents Super lager, mushrooms and some remaining acid tabs……

Above: ‘Undisputed King of the Hipsters’, based on a chap DeHud observed one morning, described by him as:

“As well as the obligatory burgundy – carrot chinos/v neck t-shirt/no socks/moccasins/flicky hair/beard he had a raincoat on – with….wait for it……: METAL STUDS ON THE SHOULDERS!!!!!!”
