Obits: Marc “Mad Marc Rude” Hoffman

1954-2002

Marc’s amazing artwork has been published in the past issues of Dert!, the “hip-pocket” size magazine started in 1991. In the first issue of Dert! Marc gave me an india ink drawing of a pierced penis. I wasn’t too sure about how Dert! readers would respond to his artistic expression. I ran it, and everyone loved it. Marc was also involved with charity causes. He contributed an india ink drawing of an angel with a broken wing for the Hollygrove Orphanage Roxy Benefit show where the late River Phoenix performed his last acoustic performanceMarc is now with the tatooed angels.
