Beyond impresssed. @_@

I've been meaning to ask: Where are Thistle and the other recurring characters I see you draw/illustrate come from?
Reply
:iconjoey-zero:
Joey-Zero Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
They're part of a story I'm (slowly) working on. It's getting mighty close to finally coming together though.

The Thistle's basically the embodiment of my intolerance for what's been going on in my city for a while now; gentrification. Generations of families and working class people being pushed out and aside to make way for outsiders with bigger wallets and a whole lot less character. Yuppies for the most part. They come here because they read it's trendy and cool, they contribute nothing to the overall culture, they cause rents and property taxes to skyrocket, bleed the place dry and leave when the rest of the herd doesn't think it's hip anymore.

Effin brilliant, mang!

Ever since I noticed these were characters from something and not one-shot illos I've been looking for links or references. The characters seemed to have such vibrant personalities I was interested in the world they might be from. Now that I know a little about the setting I am definitely interested in seeing/reading more!

Here's to a project well worth waiting for. :D

Yeah, the whole group is called the Slumlords (The Thistle, Cadence, Zou, Torch, Pro.Test, Bliss and Eligh). I want to write it so it's similar to the Battle of Wounded Knee. Basically the last stand of the Natives.

Oh man,that sounds like awesomeness incarnate! Can't wait to see it all come to fruition. If there's anything I can do to help make it happen, let me know: Terrorize an editor, break some arms, assassinate Arnold Schwartzenegger, rob a bank, you name it.

Oh wait, that Schwartzenegger thing was on MY list of Things To Do. No rest for the weary, as they say.

Carry on, my friend. Get that badboy out.

Maybe they can be like mini-bombs that do different things (sticky bomb, flash bomb, grenade, etc.). That would make it EXTRA dope! What kind of crazy fool wears explosive shit around his neck?? lol
