Help Artist Airic Brumitt

$1,365 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 12 days
I have started this campaign to help raise money to assist my friend Airic Brumitt who has fallen on hard times, which has taken its toll on his health. One of the best artists I have ever seen, his work best known by Alice Cooper fans, his life has taken a downward spiral which I have personally witnessed and felt I needed to do something to help him turn it around. Unable to get the medical attention he needs, he is barely existing financially trying to meet rent, food, and basic needs. Past tax and medical bills keeps him from getting the medical attention he desperately needs. My goal is to raise enough money to get him caught up on his bills, reinstate the prescriptions he can no longer can afford to fill, and get him to the doctor to get the medical attention he so sorely needs to get him healthy again. After that he can get back to work and start taking care of himself and hopefully get back to where he once was.

I approached Airic about doing this fund, something he was resistant to in the past, but having exhausted all avenues finally gave in. I asked him to write on overview of his situation. He has no computer access, no internet, and operates on a prepaid flip phone. He handed me this overview of his situation hand written on a legal pad:

A friend approached me about trying to do this. It's difficult for me, a 57 year old man that has worked hard to be independent. I had stocks, retirement and some savings but it all gone. Not because of myself but from a relationship I had been in. In that relationship, I slowly developed health issues. I had a job for ten years and was a stellar employee. I quit the job to help my mate and after the relationship ended, my job position had been filled.

I am a musician and an artist. I did artwork for Alice Cooper for 20 plus years. It took pure dedication and lots of hard work for me to make that happen. It was not handed to me. I designed the Alice Cooper half skull and designed stage sets and props, including the Dirty Diamonds “Angel of Death” guillotine. I designed and oversaw the fabrication of and painted stage clothes for Alice and band members. I consulted during photo and video shoots. I contributed with tour book photography and was an all around graphic artist for Alice. That credit shows up in a few tour books, CDs/LPs and even a 1975 concert DVD from Rhino. My art was requested to be displayed in the Tommy Hilfinger “Rockstyle” show at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York from Fall of 1999 though Spring of 2000. My art currently hangs in the Hardrock in New York. I also have mentions and artwork in a few books; the 2nd Kisstory book and the Kiss Tour magazine. The Treasures of the Hardrock Cafe book as well.

I stepped away from the Alice Cooper camp after we lost Brian “Renfield” Nelson. The dynamic had changed but not between Alice and I. The ideas continue to come to me on a daily basis for Alice. It's not transferable to any other artist, nor would I want it to be.

In the interim I had worked a job that eventually was too demanding for my health. Bills have stacked up and because of the kindness of my dad, he has helped as best as he can. It is humiliating to be in such a circumstance for me personally. I would prefer to be of use and have a purpose. To contribute and avoid this type of situation.

Not sure what will happen, just need a break that could sustain me and allow me to pay for the bills that I owe.

Airic's current health issues is his body develops blood clots, one making it to his right lung 13 years ago and later to his legs.

Several years ago he went to specialists to address his leg issues, multiple tests were ran and the diagnosis was “abnormal nerve damage”, why they did not know. Surgery was given as an option but it was not guaranteed this would solve the problem.

In the last year he was told he had type 2 diabetes and he was developing kidney problems.

He has two diseases in his eyes; macular fibroplasia and vitreous synersesis. Both have leveled off but he was told at some point he would see a black curtain and lose his vision.

His health issues have been mostly ignored, and medication he should be taking has not been filled due to lack of funds. Not getting any medical attention and not taking medicines that were already prescribed has taken a major toll on his overall health, I feel if something is not done soon to turn his life around the situation may be beyond fixing.
So, please share this story and help me raise the money needed to turn this situation around. If for any reason you wish to contact Airic, or looking to hire a talented artist, please send me your information to me  and I will get the message to him. But remember, he has no computer access so he will need to respond with a phone call, text or letter.

Thanks for your help.
