Okay, so I am sorry for taking so long to get this comic up. I wanted to give it more effort than I usually would, not just to make it look nice, but also because it is the 100th page I have uploaded since I started uploading these comics in the online format. It’s a nice milestone to reach, here’s to the next 100 updates!
A couple of Saturdays ago now, I awoke to the sad news that Adam Yauch (MCA of the Beastie Boys) had passed away. It really hit me hard, and it was hard to sort of come to grips with. The Beastie Boys have been not just a great soundtrack to my life, but a great influence over what I do artistically. Their humour and outlook always inspired. It’s fair to say that if there is ever a song in my head I use continuously for Adam it would be “Hey Ladies” from Paul’s Boutique. I was lucky enough to see the Beastie Boys in 2005, and I got a great shot of MCA that I thought I would share.
Also, you might notice I have implemented Disqus for the comments on the site now. This is to make it easier for people to comment on the site. Now if you wish, you can comment with a Twitter or Facebook account as a profile. Neat, huh?
Thanks for reading,
Just dropped off the custom cover to the guy who purchased it off me. It was really cool catching up with him. Plus he worked in the city, and I rarely visit inner Auckland these days. Looking around there were some changes. Including a whole new skyscraper that apparently came out of nowhere? I should have taken a photo of it, now that I am mentioning it. Sorry for my spectacular fail there!
In any case. Now that he has it, I can post the progression of how the custom cover came together. Obviously I was selling something physical, so I went old school on this one. Pencils, inks, and the colour markers to finish it off. The “Hey Ladies” is really me just thinking that, if Adam were to have a song that would represent him “Hey Ladies” by the Beastie Boys always comes to mind. It’s such a good banging track.
Now I’m back in the house. I have a cold Mac’s Gold beer in hand. The weekend has begun.
Don’t forget, I only have limited stock of the custom covers at present. If you would like one, you can hit up the store.
