Childhood is Like a Punk Rock Song

When I drew this comic last year, I ditched my trusty Rapidograph for more expressive brush pen lines and pencil scratches. I recently went back and colored it. Hopefully the results are somewhere between a Xeroxed punk zine and a coloring book. Or like a guest appearance by The Clash on Sesame Street.  

Would you like an 11"x17" print of this or any other comic on the blog? Click here for details on ordering.

  5. Congratulations on the blog of note. This is so true and I like the concept of a child growing up can be compared to a punk band. Pretty good stuff !
