Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night

faked by Friday, July 18th, 2008

This charming recipe comes courtesy of the soon-to-be-released Sandusky Review, entitled “Chopping Tulips,” which is about punk rock, fruity drinks soaked in Everclear, making out, tattoos, revival girl groups from the 70’s, disgruntled artists, and leaving New Orleans for the last time.

I just finished portions of the cover last night—it’s a cassette tape—and I did the flier for the back cover last week, so it’s marching along in due course. There’s five of these drink recipes, each for a legendary New Orleans drink, and each with an anecdote from the narrator of the story. I’ve pencilled and inked all the images, but still have to letter the written bits.

It’s going to be rad. This is the best one yet. I’m not sure what the next one is going to be like, but it might be a story about a guy from Dora, Alabama meeting Elvis in 1955. Not sure yet, but that feels good—especially if you figure that he meets him in Shreveport, at the Louisiana Hayride. Getting to draw all those old outfits sounds like a hoot.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the Sandusky Review minisite, crafted by our own Dave Ashes, and download the first three artifacts.
