Lance "Link" Montoya, accomplished artist and sculptor, was born and raised in Alameda, CA. As a young teen Lance worked with Les Claypool, of Primus fame, at a Bay Area pro audio company. Amused by Link's unique art style, Claypool asked him to come up with something for the premier Primus album Suck on This. Influenced by his older brother's collection of Creepy and Eerie magazines, Lance's oddball art style almost landed him in the psychiatry couch in middle school. School officials concerned about an early cartoon character, a chain saw wielding maniac called "Gut Man", contacted his mother to schedule a session. His older brother was able to convince their mother that he wasn't mentally twisted, just creative. One of only two album cover artists to have more than one album cover, three to be exact, featured in "Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine" magazines "Top 500 Album Covers" the other being Roger Dean of Yes fame. Still a Bay Area fixture, he occasionally produces commercial sculpts, but the majority are for his personal collection. Recently Link was commissioned to create sculpts for "The Hundreds" urban clothing line based out of Los Angeles, CA.
