"Master of Puppets" by Richard Villa III
Richard Villa III considers his inclusion in the "Obey Your Master" exhibition one of his proudest moments as a metal fan, gallerist, and artist. Villa's Exhibit A Gallery in Los Angeles has represented artists like Shepard Fairey, Shawn Barber, Sylvia Ji, and Glen E. Friedman. Villa has created art for clients like Disney, Hollywood Records, Universal Republic, Black Veil Brides, Misfits, Sebastian Bach, and Alva Skates.
His "Master of Puppets" art has echoes of the original album cover illustration by Don Brautigam with female hands holding puppet strings.
