This ‘one strip a week’ thing is not the norm I swear! It’s just been a busy couple of weeks, what with the end of my kids school year, commissions to work on and musical heroes of mine playing shows nearby! All going to plan, I’ll have another strip live on friday, with tuesday and friday being my regular ‘Slackman’ days.
What can I say about Sage Francis live? I spent the whole set singing along and grinning like an idiot! It was everything I love about Sage’s music turned up to eleven. I had no idea what to expect from the opening act but ‘Alphabethead’ was bloody brilliant. I’ve always been scathing of ‘deejays’ in the past, but this dude was the Kerry King of the decks. (If you don’t know who Kerry King is you probably have no business being on the internet). I think everybody at our table was expecting a 2nd opening act when Sage burst on stage. I’m not gonna say it was ‘hit after hit’, because I don’t think Sage has any hits as such, but I found myself shouting along to every track! I know I have said that I would probably cry, but in the moment I was too busy grinning from ear to ear. He had a cape, he was throwing glitter (or possibly shiny powder), he had a big bushy beard and I’m pretty sure he was wearing a kaftan (although I’m not 100% sure what a kaftan is)… it was the best gig I’ve ever seen!
Did I mention the Kaftan?
Anyway, back to the comic… the original art for this one is approximately 63% liquid paper but I’m pretty happy with it nonetheless. What do you think?
It’s late, I’ve had a couple wines so I think I’ll shut up now. Have a great week, see you back here later on and always, ALWAYS wash your hands after dicing chilli!
