Oh, boy...

After saying how I probably wouldn't post anything new for a while, here it is... a post created especially for the blog.

When I was in my late teens and early twenties I'd create comic strips and stories that would reflect what was going on in my life. Both the realistic and the exaggerated. Usually on a daily basis.
For the first time in a long, long time I felt the need to re-visit that approach. I hope you enjoy it. At the time I first started exploring this type of storytelling I was very much influenced by Robert Crumb. I still am.

This is "Classic Musacchia". Perhaps a "Mu-classica"
I was gonna tell you to come out of blog retirement anytime you like. Glad you decided to so soon!

PWAAHAHAH What about the guy in the jacket?? Erronious! I loved it.
A Mu-classica indeed.... I might even say Vin-tacular!?
Well done, make more! xxoo

Thank you, D!

Nice Vinnie, start collecting more of these to put into a book. Great piece.

Vince M said...

Thanks, Ed. I kinda think I will. Although it might seem like I'm copying Harvey Pekar. Then again Pekar copied Crumb, so who shives a git?

I think it's a guy named 'Sonny Belagos'. I'm gonna kick his ass if he shows up again. Mark my words.

Thanks, B. What did you think of my old-fashioned 'Iron Man' sketch?
