Record Comics #9: Ben Vaughn Combo Beautiful Things
The ninth of my series of OUBAPO comics with the following constraints:
I must draw the entire comic within the space of time I spend listening to one record. (Sides A & B)
I must draw each individual panel within the space of a single song.
I must draw with a cheap black pen. No pencil or erasing.
The record has to be one that I haven't listened to "in a while."
I can't use the lyrical content of the record in the text of my comic.
I must use the half sheets left over from printing shipping labels.
Page 1: Totally broke the rule about not using song lyrics (The 1st track on this record is "Just Like Jerry Lewis In France") but I wasn't coming up with anything else. Pleased that my Uncle Sam looks like Uncle Sam.
Page 2: Came pretty close to spelling synesthesia correctly off the top of my head. wasn't as successful remembering my High School and college German. I think $10,000 is about the correct current price for shipping anything out of the US.
Page 3: I'm proud of myself for not trying to wrap up a story those year and pretty much just drawing panels as new songs started without looking back at the turntable. That said, I think i was about dumb riffing on this stupid theme.
