If the name is familiar or you know who he is, chances are you were either (A) a Ray Gun magazine (founded by Marvin Scott Jarett) subscriber (B) a graphic designer in the ’90s (C) you ARE David Carson! 🙂 For those who don’t know, he was Ray Gun’s Art Director. Here are some issues I poured over ’til they were falling apart, not only because I was totally into the music scene, but because the entire design of the magazine not only reflected the mood of the time, but it was unlike anything seen before. Isn’t it sad though that print magazines seem to be the first to go any time there is an economic crisis? 😦
