ILLUSTRATION FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #16

I did this drawing for Chris Nieratko's article on the demise of Big Brother magazine, bogged down in a mire of regret, crying himself a river of tears.

COMIC FOR THE PAT DANDY INTERVIEW IN
THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #16

Jesus - I had fun doing this one! We had spoken since the magazine's inception about doing a comic to accompany the photos in an interview. We actually had totally different styles in mind, but they never really fit any of the interviewees - until Pat Dandy came along...

I've always loved Sergio Aragones' art, I grew up with his doodlings as a kid reading Mad magazine. It was a lot of fun learning to draw (although obviously not as well) in his style, and once I had done about an hour of random test drawings, I really ripped through the comic.

I laugh every time I see this stuff. I especially like the way Lizard King somehow snuck out of my subconscious onto the opening page! Check out the guy in the green smock and you'll know what I mean,

I just wish I had time to colour it all...
