Recorded finally:


Probably should have recorded with banjo, or guitar, instead of the tenor. Seems too thin... Oh well, save it for the record!

Kids of Widney High launch party/signing/performance [May. 28th, 2009|06:36 pm]
Faded, Jaded Mandarin
FRIDAY, JUNE 5th from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at The Comic Bug, 1807 Manhattan Beach Blvd. Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

Be there or be square! Live art, signings, and a performance from the Kids themselves!

(I'm quite proud of my work on this book, and will be there repping in full force.) Press release below--



World Premiere of THE KIDS OF WIDNEY HIGH comic book!

Live Performance by The Kids of Widney High

All of the artists of the comic will be signing along with the band!

FRIDAY, JUNE 5th from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at The Comic Bug, 1807 Manhattan Beach Blvd. Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

After months of anticipation, The Kids of Widney High comic is finally hitting the streets! Written entirely by the members of The Kids of Widney High and illustrated by some of the comic book industry's top talent, this gorgeous 36 page book is a milestone event in both rock n' roll history and comic book history!

"This wasn't some occasion where a celebrity rock band casually said 'oh, we'd like you to make a comic book," said editor/publisher Mike Wellman. "The Kids of Widney High were hands on from the very beginning, telling the stories they wanted to tell." Every word of dialogue in the book was taken from extensive interview sessions with the eight members of the rock band and then compiled into a story of adventure and triumph.

A handful of very talented artists contributed to the book including: Robbi (Maintenance) Rodriguez, Rafael (Sonambulo) Navarro, Rikki (The Monacle and Jimmy Specs) Niehaus, Chuck (Black Metal) B.B., Neal (Negative Burn) Von Flue, Chris (Bainst) Brandt, and cover art by Jim Mahfood.

All of the artists will be present for Friday's signing and some of them will participate in a live art show during the performance by The Kids of Widney High.

"Comic books are the only print media capable of capturing the energy of rock n' roll outside of a gig poster," said Wellman. "This event is going to bring it all to life for the folks to see!"

The signing/performance is free for all ages. Refreshments will be served and the artists will be selling select pieces of original artwork.
