Bud Larsen Zodiac- Capricorn

In the late 1970s, illustrator Bud Larsen contributed distinctive line-art illustrations to magazines that would go on to become synonymous with the subcultures they documented; forty-plus years later PFIQ and Drummer have become the defacto reference points for folks researching the history of body piercing and gay leather culture respectively. Bud provided cover art for both of their inaugural issues, with interior illustrations that in my mind are as intrinsic to their visual identity as Al Hirschfeld’s similar but decidedly less erotic drawings were to the New Yorker.

While most of Bud’s Drummer work was in their DRUM BEATS section, he also contributed several representatives to their Zodiac series -an S&M sign of the zodiacal times – like this Capricorn 1 Vol1 No4 1976.

Other signs by Bud:

Taurus- Vol1 Issue 2.
Scorpio- Vol1 Issue 3.
Capricorn- Vol1 Issue 4.
Aries- Vol1 Issue 5.
Cancer- Vol1 Issue 7.

 

Notes:

  1. Capricorn Facts: Often calm, to the degree of appearing slightly cold, meticulous and dogged in their persistence for quality and productivity, Capricorn individuals are often a notch above their counterparts. Source – https://www.ganeshaspeaks.com/zodiac-signs/capricorn/facts
