And one day we will die and our ashes will fly

I'm on a comic kick lately....I bought Charles Burns' Black Hole (apparently David Fincher is directing an adaptation??) and Clowes' "Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron" (my favorite comic of all time). I've read them both before but it's the type of thing where you need to own them, I think. Eventually I went to get a Daniel Clowes' sleeve done, but that's way in the future. Thinking of comics though because I had to get a cover-up on my airplane/GBM tattoo, since I let some drunk chick I met on a subway convince me to go to her studio and get these ghetto blue trail lines drawn off of them about two months ago.
They were gross looking. I don't even have a picture of them since I didn't like them.
So I went to my buddy Nick at Flyrite (who did the mermaid tv-face) with the idea of clouds and an eventual comic book theme for a sleeve, and he came up with this panel art that looks AWESOME (though I am the worst at pictures):



Tonight I am stoked to go see My Winnipeg at IFC and then go to Chief Magazine/Bodega space downstairs to hear Boyfriends/Titus Andronicus. Look at the Chief Mag site next week for my interview with comedian and fart-joker, Bobby Tisdale.
