Punk Rock & Paintbrushes has announced that Tim Armstrong (Rancid) has been added to the list of talent from the music, art and action sports communities that will be featured in the one-of-a-kind collaboration Punk Rock & Paintbrushes: The Insides of Artists written by OutsidersThe exclusive coffee table art book was co-created by Emily T. Nielsen (Punk Rock & Paintbrushes) and Warren Fitzgerald (The Vandals). It will be released on March 15, 2021 and is available for pre-order now at www.PunkRockArt.com.


Punk Rock & Paintbrushes is a unique arts management company and art show producer that bridges the gap between art and music. The Insides of Artists written by Outsiders features 26 chapters, each showcasing artwork and personal stories from participating artists.


While Armstrong’s legacy is firmly rooted in music via RancidOperation Ivy and Transplants, another side of his work has publicly emerged recently with online showings of the paintings and illustrations he has made over the years. Armstrong’s artwork and direction are on Rancid’s albums as early as the 1992 album Let’s Go.


In the book, Armstrong says, “I don’t take days off. I like to be consistent in what I do. I paint something every morning with my cup of coffee and play music for the rest of the day. These two activities are what I do every day, regardless of my mood or how I’m feeling.”

Nielsen created Punk Rock & Paintbrushes as a platform for artists to showcase their creativity and wildness, their lifestyle, their talents and successes at gallery exhibits and music festivals. As an extension of these exhibitions, The Insides of Artists written by Outsiders represents these sentiments and reminds us that “Punk Rock is not just about music and paintbrushes are not just tethered to the idea of art, but instead the two together are the perfect combination of life in a radical way,” says Nielsen.


The roots of Punk Rock & Paintbrushes reach back to 2007 when Nielsen asked friend Tim McIlrath (Rise Against) to paint a piece of art with the lyrics to the Rise Against song “Survive” for her after overcoming a battle with cancer. The painting has traveled around the world with Emily and is an everyday reminder that “How we survive is what makes us who we are.”


Punk Rock & Paintbrushes: The Insides of Artists written by Outsiders is self-published by Emily T. Nielsen’s company Romantic Rock.
