Rocking Out

July 21, 2012

Here’s a flyer for a local visit by one of the original ‘punk poets’ Patrik Fitzgerald, with the Astronauts and Lee Clayden  – no specific influence on this drawing, just a generic rebellious punk character and a rocking horse I found in an old sketchbook, which seemed to fit the bill.

In fact the original drawing had Kim Deal on a horse and Frank Black as a jack-in the-box, which later became an Alternative Sam comic strip.

I tried some different textures and outlines on this one, which I’m quite pleased with; I also added some colour before deciding it was better off in simple black and white…I should remember the words of Neil Young, “What you do first is the right f-in’ thing and just move on”!
