Turn It Up!

July 25, 2008

This one’s inspired by a Bruce Springsteen song, which was in turn inspired by a Sam Cooke song:

Meet me at Mary’s Place.


Suffer in Silence

July 20, 2008

Yup…taking way too long to post these.  No doubt about it.

Wow…I was a little tardy getting this one posted.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been using song lyrics for inspiration lately.  I usually like to keep the references subtle, but I don’t want anybody thinking I want to take credit for great lines like “I had too much to dream last night” (the Electric Prunes) or “I Know I lost, please let me suffer in silence” (Apoptygma Berzerk; drawing to come soon).  Sometimes I’ll even reference two outside sources.  Google ’em.

Anyway…inspired by Steve Earle:

I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night

Be careful about dreaming too much on a Sunday, ok?

Summertime Blues

July 5, 2008

Ain’t no cure for the summertime blues!

Note: This may come as a shock to some, but I usually do these drawings spontaniously, in one shot.  Such was not the case with this one.  I went through about 100 drafts, and I still don’t think I got it right.  The kid on the top left is having serious trouble with his right eye.

Is there no better way to celebrate this country than by doing really, really stupid things?

No, I s’pose not.

Nothing Much Makes Sense

July 1, 2008

I think this picture is completely ruined by my ridiculously cascading handwritten title.   It’s a shame that I can’t write.  Or draw.
