My Friends Are Djs #26 - "Better with Time"

Well I wanted to introduce a "veteran" dj to the cast and so here he is....Meet Komodo, Sandstorm's older brother. Komodo was inspired by veteran djs Mauro Picotto and Tiesto. Like his younger brother, Komodo's is a former military Martian, whose shell shape is based off a highly stylized lizard in this case a Komodo Dragon alluding to Mauro Picotto's old track "Komodo" but unlike his brother....he is has a very solemn, sully but fatherly deposition. He is Bitz the Cat's mentor. In addition, I wanted to highlight just how long good djs play the music biz game after reading an article Signor Picotto posted about old veteran djs in the biz getting better with time. The one regret I have is...I couldn't think of anything esle to draw in that shows Komodo's age.

My Friends Are Djs #25 - Comebacks!

The main inspiration behind this panel was certain tracks but in particular ONE track from my early teens and dance days which has returned bigger then ever I might say....Darude's Sandstorm. I was very amused that it returned suddenly out of the blue after 16 years of first hearing when it first burst on to the dance airways. Man that track and Darude were very much on fire at the time and I still remember watching Darude perform on the old "Electric Circus" program. I also remember being poked fun by the "in-crowd" for my love of dance music...being seen as "uncool" with Sandstorm being used as an example. Now I giggle in amusement cause it seems the "in-crowd" finds tracks like Sandstorm are "cool".

I just handled this panel like a simple physical, gag comedy.....you make a hit....BOOM it comes back bigger then ever. Plus meet a new character...Sandstorm. He is named after the track "Sandstorm" obviously and a Martian in a robotic, military shell. His shell colours is meant to resemble a highly stylized desert reptile. He and and his older brother (soon to make a debut) are meant to represent veteran djs who have been around in the music scene for a very long time. Enjoy!

My Friends Are Djs #24 - Friendship

With the last week of voting for DJ Mag top 100 left...I thought it would be a good time to put up this panel. I do love my DJ friends for the people they are and I was just purely thankful we're similar in personality and get along very well....them being the top DJs in the world was just a "side" bonus. So this is my artistic idea of that feeling. Went for the straight to the point approach for this one. AT first I wanted to have them hugging....then I realized how can they hug without looking silly...if they have no actual arms. So went for the TV Heads giving Breezey anti-gravity ride through the clouds. She looks happy.

My Friends Are Djs #23 - Humble Gifts

Now on occasion djs do give away gifts mostly in the form of mp3s.....if that does happen remember to thank the dj for it....this is the inspiration behind this panel and my thanks to all those many djs were nice enough to give gifts to their fans, which include real life djs which partly served as the inspiration for Rocket Twins, TV Heads, and Bitz....Blasterjaxx, Djs From Mars, and Martin Garrix respectively....Grazies.
