AlphaBands – I is for Iggy Pop

I is for Iggy Pop One of my fave musicians, but for not one of my fave AlphaBands drawings so far. It lost something in the inking or coloring: ——— AlphaBands is a weekly online collaborative project in which illustrators and cartoonists draw a band or musician for one letter of the alphabet each week …

AlphaBands – G is for Greg Ginn

G is for Greg Ginn Greg Ginn is, of course, the legendary guitarist for Black Flag and founder of SST records. He’s a somewhat controversial figure in music, but here’s one thing there’s really no debate about: he’s an amazing guitarist. This image was done in entirely Manga Studio on a Surface 2 Pro. (And …

AlphaBands – F is for The Flat Duo Jets

F is for The Flat Duo Jets My first encounter with the music of the Flat Duo Jets was via the 1987 documentary, Athens, GA Inside/Out. If I’m remembering correctly, a cassette of the soundtrack started making the rounds at my high school and we were all listening to it before anyone had actually seen …

AlphaBands – E is for The Everly Brothers

E is for The Everly Brothers If there’s anything positive to say about the recent passing of Phil Everly, it’s this: it was accompanied by a surprising amount of well-deserved press. My hunch is that this’d not have occurred fifteen–or maybe even ten–years ago. In the time between then and now, “Americana” seems to have …

AlphaBands – D is for Danzig

D is for Danzig Yes, today’s AlphaBands entry is PURE EVIL: Glenn Danzig! I waffled a bit on whether to draw him under “D” or under “G,” but I consider him to be just plain Danzig–kinda like “Madonna” or “Pink” (but more evil). In addition to being the singer for The Misfits, Samhain and–later–Danzig the …

AlphaBands – C is for Creedence Clearwater Revival

C is for Creedence Clearwater Revival CCR is a band most people know–mainly through the two or three of their songs that are in perpetual rotation on pretty much every “classic rock” station everywhere–but who never seem to get mentioned alongside “A-list” bands like the Stones, Beatles, Beach Boys, etc. They’re for sure one of …

Again With the Lou Reed

Here’s a (second) recent drawing of Lou Reed, this one taken from the picture accompanying his obituary in TIME magazine. I hadn’t really intended to do anything with this one, but it turned out alright and I had some time to fool with it last week. Process: sketched in pencil, inked and colored in Manga …

From the Sketchbook: John Lennon

  I just colored a quick drawing I did in my sketchbook last week of John Lennon. I think the photo I was looking at was from last month’s MOJO Magazine review of the new box set. Process: Drawn in pencil, inked with Pentel brush pen, colored in Photoshop.

Lou Reed – 1942-2013

Here’s a drawing of Lou Reed I started the evening he died and just wrapped up this evening. Since his death, people far more eloquent and far more knowledgeable about music than I have written about Lou Reed’s significance and importance. I’ll just say this: I discovered the Velvet Underground when I was in high …
