R.I.P. Kurt Cro-bain

Today marks the 18th anniversary of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s death.

As an angst-filled teen I was a fan of both his music and lifestyle, so when a customer commissioned me to make a Kurt Cobain figure a few months ago I was pleased to do it.

 My first reaction naturally was,  “You want him to be dead, right?”, but the buyer assured me she preferred him alive.

Creepiest. Safety eyes. Ever.

That’s Flipper the San Francisco punk band. Not the dolphin.

Yes, Kurt was left handed. Sinister.

It just wouldn’t be 90’s grunge without holey jeans and Chuck Taylors.

“And I swear that I don’t have a gun / No I don’t have a gun.”

Sure you don’t, Kurt.

If only he could have picked up a better hobby than gun collecting…

R.I.P. 1967-1994
