“Cliff Mott's visual style is such a joy to behold. Clean bold lines brimming with energy. An economy
of style that never fails to defintively capture the subject. The fun leaps off the page. Cliff carries the torch
of great American illustration. Plus I like the way he draws the monsters and the pretty girls.”
Jon Spencer, Blues Explosion

“Mott’s cover art for bands, as well as his many concert posters put him in the modern DNA of the
proto-human species known as the “original punk rock cartoonists.” The illustrations for the Punk Rock
Book of Lists are the best reason to buy that product, but the sheer talent evident in every brush-stroke is
the reason any sane art-collector should buy a piece of his original artwork.”
John Holmstrom, Punk Magazine

“F#@%&ing Genius.”
Handsome Dick Manitoba
