David Mann, Art Hero

I've been way over due to post some of Dave's stuff.

Summing it up. This ran in the "In the Wind "section preceding the center spread.

I'd been digging Dave's stuff since I first saw those tiny images of posters in the Roth ads. Choppers were mysterious machines so, I used to squint at those ads, trying to figure out just what the hell was going on.

In the Wind On Friday Night. This classic art was in the same issue (8/72), as the Bandit post below. Could be up the coast by Malibu or Ventura.

I like his early works the best. While not as detailed as his later work, there's a feeling and directness to them that just nails it.

When David Mann Passed away it was a very sad day. Hot only will his family and friends miss him all of the art world will too his work will be greatley missed. there are many who try to fill the void but sadley as good an artist as they are its not the same. I hope his work will continue to be shown ny who controls it. Jake Deviles Diciples Motorcycle Club So Cal
