Recently my brother Matt (Matt Zumbo Illustration) did an interview for radio station WMSE 91.7 MHz in which he discussed his 31 years producing artwork for Koss billboards, his transistion to digital art, and much more. (WMSE is a non-commercial radio station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, playing a wide-ranging eclectic music format run by volunteer DJ's. The station is part of the Milwaukee School of Engineering.)
 
If you are interested click THIS LINK. Matt's interview starts at 1:32:30 and runs for ~20 minutes. 
 
Same interview, edited to Matt's segment and embedded. Thanks Martin!

Thanks gents. I'll pass on your compliments. 
 
Some of his early renditions of "backside" included a tramp stamp. I prefer this version. Sometimes less is more...
