In the early '90s he had a drinking problem, exacerbated when he bought a Des Moines bar. Frustrated by the lack of success, he says he would have killed himself if he hadn't met his wife Chantal. "My saviour, my hero," he says. "She saved my life." - Q Magazine.

Shawn also is the founder of Big Orange Clown Records, an imprint of Sanctuary Records, and signed mallcore/metalcore act, *Gizmachi.

Creating Clown's Subliminal Mask

Purchase any clown mask. Cut out all the hair. You may also need to cut out hole for your lips if needed. Next, grab a lighter and slightly melt the nose to give it a beat up look. Second, adjust the mask to fit your head if needed. Third, fill in around the eyes and the mouth with black and red spray paint. Also, you may spray paint the head red. When dry, wrap the mask with bandages or something similar. Now, add blood around the eyes, the mouth, and anywhere where you would like preferably using a red sharpie. There you go!
