Justin Bartlett has created artwork for bands like Sunn O))), Hooded Menace, Trap Them, and much more (alongside tons of layout and design work). Unfortunately Bartlett has just been diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer and needs your help. Justin's sister has organized a GoFundMe to help pay for his medical bills, and so far has raised nearly $30,000 of the $60,000 needed.

"As I dropped him off at his Oncology appointment, I looked at my brother and I said, 'Justin, this sucks so much." With pain and exhaustion in his eyes, he replied, 'And… this is just the beginning." Shortly after that conversation, it was confirmed that my brother, Justin Bartlett, has Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer. We had our suspicions based on his symptoms, and the cryptic scan results that had been sent home with him from his latest Emergency Room stay. Since then he’s already had three surgeries, and is due to start chemotherapy soon.
"Justin is one of my best friends. He’s funny, intelligent, generous, and extremely talented. He has his own business working as a graphic designer & gallery artist — most famously in the heavy metal music genre. If you’re a metal fan, you’ve seen some of his album cover work and merchandise designs. He’s got a LONG road ahead of him, and needs help with medical and living expenses because he’s too exhausted and in pain to work."
