These dudes have been on my walls and computer desktop since high school so finally being able to see them live (twice in one year!) has been a dream come true and super inspiring!
I’m going to stop myself before I start blabbing about how I got to meet them (but I totally did, autographs, hugs and all) but I do know that I immediately wanted to draw them when I got home.
I’m in the progress of making fake cartoon screencaps using dialogue from their videos and interviews, simply because I thought it would be fun and great practice for character design and composition.
Maybe my excitement for this stems from my love of Gorillaz, The Mighty Boosh, Flight of the Conchords and The Aquabats (and my deep, deep, burning, gelatinous love for this band) but I need this like oxygen.
