So here’s the progress so far on the Al Columbia sleeve, all together. I gotta choose a couple more pieces, 2-3. One is Knishkekibble The Monkey Boy, likely on my wrist. Then I’m going to search for a few others. I’d like to do something from Biologic Show #0 or so, more in his pen & ink style….but I’m afraid that it wouldn’t look right next to his later, streamlined stuff. We will see. I’m in love with the guy peeking around the corner in the opening pages of Biologic Show #0, opening his mouth so wide that his jaw pretty much unhinges & it’s all tongue & teeth. Also, a clown face from Amnesia is a likely addition. I’d love to add the Hydra from “The Trumpets They Play!” but we will see if there is room. I need something from that story, it’s likely my favorite of his if I HAD to choose.
No matter what, it’s only pretty much outline at this point & I’m already in love with it. I cannot wait to see the finished product, no matter how much more is needed to complete it. Giving it time to heal is the worst, I’m sorta impatient in that regard. But I’m very happy my artist & I came up with this scheme…we went from doing one or a couple Columbia pieces….where I was having trouble choosing….to saying
"eff it" and doing a sleeve. The mottos "If you’re going to do it, do it right" & "all or nothing" definitely apply to this one.
Oh you like that shirt huh? You should let Michel Fiffe know, his handle on Tumblr is Zegas. This is the shirt he made with the cover to COPRA #1. Which is now like…legendary at this point. Maybe if you ask, he will do more. But, I’ve got mine & i must admit… it’s quite stylish.
