New Perpetuated Generalities

No, I'm never going to get tired of drawing piles of dead beings and busted ass robots.

I spent an insane amount of time on this one, maybe even more than the Yukon flyer. I went the long way around drawing the text by scanning the penciled layouts, typesetting it in Photoshop using a boring font, printing out the text, then light-boxing the text onto the penciled art, giving it a hand lettered look. After that I inked the text and linear parts of the art, then masked off the text and did the splatter effects. Then I scanned it and spent a day coloring.

Anyway, I'm really stoked for this show. Parts & Labor is one of my favorite bands. This is the third time I've done a flyer for them. I'll have to check, but I think I've done more flyers for Self Destruct Button than any other band. And then there's PROLE. I really wanted to use the Gadsden Flag in something and had planned to put it on the cover of the new Caveman Diaries, but when this flyer came up I decided it would work better and be seen by more eye balls here. Color-wise I think it came out pretty good, if not nearly as cheerful as that Yukon flyer. Which, it's not really a cheerful image, so... yeah. Things of note: Skullface, grown up Hello Kitty, the bird guy from last year's Japanther flyer, and a robotic version of myself.

Still pretty thick in the Lone Wolf and Cub movies. I'll write up a longer piece about them all when I've seen all six. Other than that, nothing else yet to report.

Kick ass flyer man, I love your style. BTW the Lone Wolf and Cub books are so much better than the movies, although the first movie was bloody good.
