Walkman Sin City
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! A quick post. Work continues on projects as I progressively focus to improve in multiple areas, specifically INKING. Over the weeks I was reminded of this project I did way back in 1988 for a Hunter College student Newspaper called The Shield. My editors, starting with Mary Kay Penn, and Carol Webster, allowed me to do my thing in a project titled “WALKMAN”. I tackled the ideas of race and misrepresentation in the late 80s NYC. I wanted to do something cool visually and thought of this art style that would be a blend between Bourne Hogarth’s silhouette ink style, Wally Wood, Spain Rodriguez and R Crumb. After 4 episodes of Walkman I moved on to other things but always felt I would use that art style again.
But then Frank Miller did Sin City. It’s not who does i first. It’s who delivers to market first. HA!
Or at least that was my thought as a younger dude. Now, I wear Dad jeans without shame (I think I own Dad jeans:-) So decided to take a stab in a bit of reverse engineering…with MARV
Back To It!
