Some really cool news has broke about a dream come true for me. As some may know, and certainly close friends do, I’m a huge Blondie fan and always have been. Last year Wendy and I actually got the opportunity to meet the band, it was astounding for me, and that is an understatement. However, certain things developed which allowed me to stay in touch with Chris Stein from the band. It was mutually decided to work together. First discussion was doing cover art for them on their next project following the current release of Panic of Girls. I really didn’t want to post this info until the band brought it up publicly themselves, which they’ve now done. I’m excited beyond words to work with them. Haden Blackman and I also developed a video concept for one of the new songs late last year. They seemed to really like the concept, but don’t know if the video will get done because of budgets and such. Thats how it goes sometimes, but there is gratification just getting the chance to present them with ideas. Seeing a published confirmation from them about doing the cover work on the next thing is just damn cool, I’m over the moon.
I of course let friends know. Who wouldn’t, right? And my good friend, James Sime of San Francisco’s Isotope Comics Lounge, has truly humbled me by this very sweet article he has posted about the night we hung out with Blondie. He’s the most awesomest! He describes it by far better than I can, so here is the link…
