Years trying to get music in the narrative of a comic. I remember spending days trying to put a fandango I heard in Niño de la Rubita originally sung by Paco Toronjo into panels. Hours of counting notes, rhythm and frustration.
At last, I finally think I am getting close. This is the beginning of Blitzkrieg Bop. What do you think? Can you hear it too?

Candy Karaoke opened yesterday in the Munster Truck Gallery in Francis Street, Dublin. It is an amazing exhibition. 70 creatives reinterpreting their favourite record covers. Some fantastic concepts.
It's going to be up for two weeks so I really recommend you try and see it.

Well, the exhibition is up and running.
The official opening was last Friday. We had a fantastic crowd and the place was buzzing with energy. All works look fantastic.
So I am delighted with it.
Hope some of you can make to it.

This is my entry for CandyKaraoke show. Basically we had to pick one of our all time favourite records and re-create it (at the same size.) I wasn't allowed to use digital techniques so I decided to go completely traditional: canvas, water, brushes, acrilics and a lot of patience...
Making a choice of record wasn't easy. The last five with this one were: Release by Cop Shoot Cop, Unnatural History II by Coil, Notes From Thee Underground by Pigface, Cool Struttin' by Sonny Clark and Échate Un Cantecito by Kiko Veneno.
