Billy Martin is best known as the lead guitarist and keyboard player for Good Charlotte. When he is not watching Good Charlotte's albums going multi-platinum, he spends his time building another career as an artist. Merging the two passions, he contributed to Good Charlotte's stage design, album art and band merchandise.
His artwork is not limited to his band though. He co-wrote and illustrated Vitriol: The Hunter in 2012. It is the story of a hero, fueled by vengeance, in a decomposing city filled with the supernatural. Recently, he has also done work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures and BOOM!’s Adventure Time.
Martin is a versatile, multi-talented artist. He's also a very popular comic con guest. Too bad he couldn't showcase any of his music at the con. That would have been awesome.
I look forward to meeting Martin again and reporting back here. Until then, check out TheBillyMartin.com for updates, info and his convention schedule.
