narum’s began his professional career with sleek pen-and-inks of Houston’s sixties counterculture, where his album covers, poster art, T-shirts and political cartooning became synonymous with it’s counter culture movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He later co-founded radio station KLOL. narum’s trade mark signature is recognized world wide for the artwork and staging he created for “that little ol’ band from Texas” – ZZ Top.

In the early 1970s, narum returned to Austin to join with fellow Sheauxnough Studio artists in creating artwork for the underground press and various music venues, including the famous concert hall Armadillo World Headquarters. narum opened GOGO Studios in the 1980s to service Austin’s burgeoning music industry producing album covers, posters and logo designs for Stevie Ray Vaughan and many local musicians, clubs and record labels.

In 1988, narum was voted Austin Poster Artist of the Year in the Austin Chronicle’s People’s Choice Awards for his Continental Club poster series.

In 1993, narum was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the City of Austin for providing a valued and distinguished service to the public through his artwork. narum’s artwork has been acquired by City and State historical preservation archives and private collectors world wide.

narum began experimenting with computer graphics in the mid-1980s and was also involved with several innovative multimedia and Internet related projects, as well as producing artwork for the music industry.

To everyone’s shock and sorrow, narum died on Wednesday, November 18, 2009. His passing leaves the art and music communities of Texas poorer, as the rich palette of his work that spanned decades and mediums is unparalleled.
