VIDEO: Today I’m drawing my favorite character from the comic and now TV show, Deadly Class. And it’s probably not who you think it is. I know everyone loves the leading ladies– Saya is mysterious and lethal, Maria is dangerous and loyal – but the one I’m always rooting for is Billy. I just like that kid.
So for today’s sketchbook journal entry, let’s head way back to 1996. Just like in issue 9 of the comic when Saya and Marcus go to see The Adolescents at The Fillmore, this is the story of my first punk show.
After my first class at Cyclebar yesterday, I’m reading a new Judy Blume book titled, My Tender Spin Class Bottom.
Just got a text from Rick to say that the Deadly Class TV show was picked up by the SYFY channel. Hell yeah! That’s great news! Happy to see he finally sold a series. I saw the pilot episode in February at the Palm Springs Summit, aka PiSS.
After all the the hard work, shit eating, and so-close-but-no-thank-yous it’s great to see such a rad success. I love the comic and the TV series looks like it’ll be awesome too. Rick was cool enough to name the metalhead character after me. It’s a huge mark in the win column– local boy done good.
The truth is a lion.
This went sideways pretty fast. Shot a video for it but it was dark and slow and boring as hell so I dumped it. I’ll try the idea again with better lighting and a better drawing later.
