Seething through his youth, a Ritalin prescribed ADHD, latchkey, Catholic Altar Boy in the Carolinas, "Dave Glass" Riddick knelt at the altar of fear and lies, and rang the sanctus bells, tolling for the black sheep of broken homes. 

    Raised in the 1970's young Glass was immersed in pop culture, collecting puffy monster stickers, Evel Kenievel, staging mock battles with Star Wars and GI joe action figures, and building hot rod and war machine models in the haze of testors glue fumes. Un-tuned to the world he found an escape discovering sub-cultures in the 1980's. Igniting his journey, teenage Glass began scribbling on school desks, skateboards, brown paper bag book covers, making homemade punk rock stencil spray painted and sharpee pen T-shirts, as well as painting leather, army and denim jackets.

    Dave Glass has since illustrated, designed album covers and posters for numerous bands, from GBH to Soundgarden, and/or hand screen printed licensed clothing and merchandise for boundless bands, ranging from AC/DC to GG Allin. Not to mention creating art for anything else subversive, from the adult industry to burlesque troupes, to roller derby and tattoo conventions, around the globe. His work has been featured in books such as The Art Of Modern Rock, Electric Frankenstein High Energy Rock N Roll Poster Art, Aphrodisia II Art Of The Female Form, and numerous international publications such as Numinous Magazine, Tattoo Mania Magazine, Carbon 14, and Devolution Magazine.

    In addition to creating art for bands over the past 3 decades, Mr. Glass has held the throne as drummer for many musical endeavors including The Strychnine Babies, Dead Empty, and Doomed To Obscurity.

   in 2017 After screen printing as a full time job since 2003, Glass has launched Seduce And Destroy, a small clothing line, initially conceived in 2005. Follow on Instagram @seduceanddestroythreads.

Currently living and working at Villain Arts compound, screen printing and illustrating in Fishtown, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, US.
