The late Kurt Cobain’s death was a mystery by all accounts. He was found with a gunshot wound administered through the roof of his mouth. Very little blood was visible, and his system contained massive amounts of cocaine. A fairly lengthy suicide note was left behind explaining his disappointment with his career, etc.
But Eldon ‘El Duce’ Hoke, singer of an L.A. punk band called “The Mentors”. Claims Courtney Love offered him $50,000 to kill Kurt in December 1993. Hoke was administered a polygraph test by Dr. Edward Gelb, who was one of the country’s leading polygraph experts. Hoke passed with 99.7% certainty that he was telling the truth. Hoke was also later found dead on April 19, 1997 after friends say he went for a walk with someone they’ve never seen before. He was found on a railway track having been hit by a train while intoxicated. All very suspicious.

This image was completed in charcoal and pastels. Framed and poster prints, also canvas wraps available from on request.

I’m a self-taught artist from the North of England and I like to inject a bit of humour wherever possible, whether it’s in my writing (see my poems), or my artwork.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave comments on any pieces you like.

    this is a great picture, but he did not die of drug overdose. he commited suicide with a shotgun.

  • Thanks for that Dan. I was incorrectly informed. I shall make the correction. By the way, anyone who works with autistic children deserves praise in my book. My eleven-year-old son has autism and we are eternally grateful to people such a you.
