My Friends Are Djs "Vegas Job" Arc

Well this sotry was planned to be the first actual multi-panel story line but was delayed in respect to the shootings in Vegas. Since it was the first try at long format story arc...it's simply Breezey going for a vacation in Vegas.

Now I did actually go to Vegas in the summer for a weekend vacation and was able to take photos for all the comic backgrounds. Yep all of the backgrounds are Vegas for real! The chase starts on the south end of the strip (near Luxor) then ends at Bellagio (roof of the gardens + foot bridge on the property). The pool party rest/ending is Flamingo Go Pool...which was taken in the early hours of a real pool party! Breezey is also sporting a new "hair-do" of "fans" to keep her cool...Vegas in the summer is very hot! As bit of world building...Vegas of the comic's world is home to the Martian, "luck" powered Jon-Tin family. Major power players in Vegas...their super powers being luck the reason..do I have to explain why? They are allied with another major power in the area...Tiempo, the very persona of time. Guess why it's a major power in Vegas?!

What is in that box? Hmmmm


My Friends Are Djs #142 - "Blue Plunge"

Steamed from a brainstorming/poetry session and wanted to portray some Martian landscape. Mars does have high mountain ranges in real life but not mysterious blue energy dripping down from certain cliff sides...or is it? Combination of watercolour washes to portray the weird Martian sky and earth.


My Friends Are Djs #135-141 "Ethereal's Flight"

Well...tried to go for complex story arc and to explain one of the most mysterious and enigmatic djs in the coop...Ethereal the Stern Silence. The "wrap around" story is her attending one of Inkwell's workshops to "let it out". I just decided to focus on the "characters" rather then any scenery to keep it simple and write off the simplicity (which actually works better that way) as Ethereal not willing to admit the full carnage/details of what happened just yet. Art-style I went water colour wash surrealism, I usually do with Ethereal's segments..edged with softer "edge" within Ethereal's recollections at times to highlight it;s dream quality. Explored in addition the sisterly bond between Ethereal and Telu. Together as sisters but completely different in personalities. Went for a more emotional imagery poetry to match Ethereal's surreal-dreamy style.

The monster which causes the collapses is Lucid who has appeared (Here) before in panels and basically a living warning against/represents psychedelic drugs/vices, and dangerous overt romanticism of psychedelic/dreams. I've seen alot in clubs! Lucid the Lazy is considered very dangerous despite it's lazy nature, because of its nightmarish nature/effects of it's hallucinogenic gas. In the comic world..."stuff" derived from Lucid's gas (or bodily fluids) are extremely potent to nightmare levels.

We also get to meet the Lasher siblings, Needlepoint and Pincushion Lasher, when they were guns for hire "blood mashers". They are clients of Telu's black market data paddling. Needlepoint uses a rig with holographic energy (she can form any tool with blue energy) as her "arms" when "blood mashing". The Data in question...coordinates+directions to the Junk Planet and friend thing between Telu + Needlepoint. It's called the Junk Planet (+ the Moon) due to the sheer number of alien species/beings going there for various reasons. As some sentients would put it "The unwanted "trash" of the universe gather here"..."trash" like two alien mercenaries, and Neptunian siblings escaping peril.

See what esle is on the horizon


My Friends Are Djs #132-134 "Earworm Incident"

Just playing around and experimenting more with the multi-installment story telling...plus yes wanted to make an ear worm literally deadly for fun and to show the weird physics of this new world, the heroes inhabit. Showing off a bit of Etheral's offensive powers too...she may be the resident Trance Dj and the definition of airy "peace" and calm to her fans but she can pack a whaloop when push comes to shove!


My Friends Are Djs #131 - "Halloween Scares"

The mice (which is a parody of crazed-superficial fans) went up the rigging! Based on a real incident that did happen last weekend during Alan Walker's set at Escape. Some person did climb up the rigging with security in hot pursuit and music had to stop with the DJ telling the person to get down! People...don't do it...a broken leg and that kind of attention is not worth it! Enough said!


My Friends Are Djs #130 - "Still Hate Pomps"

Yep I just wanted to randomly again put Needlepoint in a pompom dress...and she still hates the dresses on the count it's painful-hard to move in for her...but she doesn't mind looking good. So it's kind of a running gag for her.


My Friends Are Djs #129 - "Worlds Swirled"

In my journeys meeting different djs, I discovered that basically each dj is like portal into another world, which becomes apparent when one travels across musical genres. So here we have Breezey and the Tv Heads traveling across a field of portals. Breezey is riding (via gravity manipulation) her beloved and handmade with love (by her mom, Seagull from scraps of fabric) plush whale, Mr. Splish-Splash.
