“Traveling in his custom self painted leopard coated Cadillac, Howard Teman arrived in Los Angeles to pursue his art career in 1984. He started designing flyers for hometown’s backyard keg parties as early as he could drink and draw. These first designs immediately caught the attention of the Bay Area’s thriving rock music scene, which kick started the young artist’s career.
At a tender age of 23, Howard became the hottest concert tour t-shirt designer under the mega rock and roll merchandising company, Great Southern. During his three year stint with the company, Howard designed t-shirts for such major acts as: Cher, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden, Lynyrd Synyrd, Cypress Hill, including a world tour t-shirt for the group The Scorpions which became the Great Southern’s all-time top seller.
Aside from the famed artist’s ultra-imaginative designs in the art world, Howard is also an accomplished musician. His piano and percussion work can be heard on Gun’s and Roses’ albums “Lies” and “Use Your Illusion II” and has played on many sessions with the rock and roll musician’s A-list.”
