The design finally came to life after a mishap when originally designing his logo.

"So I explained it to my buddy Max, who ended up doing Slash's guitar, but when I went down there for the photo shoot, I opened up the case and saw the Bullseye logo. I said, 'Dude, what the fuck?' I had drawn it on a piece of paper and everything, but it was too late anyway. So we did the photo shoot, and the rest is history." Wylde finally got the design done correctly. "It came out cool.
