Artist Airic Brumitt, who designed Alice Cooper's stage props, costumes, and more for 20 years, including the famous Alice/Skull design, is in poor health and urgently needs help with medical bills! His friend Hugh Gallagher has organized a GoFundMe campaign to raise fund for his friend so if you can please go look and help. Here's a little more background info about Airic:
"I am a musician and an artist. I did artwork for Alice Cooper for 20 plus years. It took pure dedication and lots of hard work for me to make that happen. It was not handed to me. I designed the Alice Cooper half skull and designed stage sets and props, including the Dirty Diamonds “Angel of Death” guillotine. I designed and oversaw the fabrication of and painted stage clothes for Alice and band members. I consulted during photo and video shoots. I contributed with tour book photography and was an all around graphic artist for Alice. That credit shows up in a few tour books, CDs/LPs and even a 1975 concert DVD from Rhino. My art was requested to be displayed in the Tommy Hilfinger “Rockstyle” show at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York from Fall of 1999 though Spring of 2000. My art currently hangs in the Hardrock in New York. I also have mentions and artwork in a few books; the 2nd Kisstory book and the Kiss Tour magazine. The Treasures of the Hardrock Cafe book as well."
