INKtober Day 13 – Charmy as Keith Richard
The Rolling Stones is such an iconic band. The fact that they have remained a band for six decades is crazy. The fact that they are still performing is insane. Right behind the Rolling Stones, we have bands like The Who still going… and just behind them you have TWO Yes incarnations touring. When you compare relevancy though, The Rolling Stones are the only band that matters when you look at longevity. The Who is still living on their Tommy fame. Yes is not Yes without the late Chris Squire.
Though of you who know me are wondering why I did not mention Cheap Trick in the conversation. Yes, they started in 1969 as the band Fuse… for one album… but they did not take flight until 1976. The Rolling Stones where already a multi generation band by the time MY favorite band recorded that amazing self-titled debut album.
For day thirteen of INKtober, we get Charmy as Keith Richards. Charmy is the only character from my comic strip who can pull off this mashup. This will look much more compelling once I get my Copic Markers to it. Charmy needs some dark shading around his eyes. I cannot replicate that with just pen and ink.
INKtober has been fun so far. I lost a day of cartoon work yesterday when I was called into work. I had so much planned before I had to race out the door. I left so quickly that I forgot to clean my awesome brush. I used it with some gouache paint when I patched up a spot on my strip that smeared. The paint brush was a goner by the time I got back home. I am going to try taking off next Friday again. Hopefully this time I can take the day to create a ton of art. We shall see!
As soon as the Astros game is over, I am hitting the hay. Toon in tomorrow for more INKtober madness.
