Juggernaut String Band played five sets a day at the Garlic Festival this weekend, totaling 4 stage sets, 4 strolling sets, and two parades led by the Garlic King or Queen, winner of the daily garlic eating contest. We had the honor and delight of sharing the venue of this festival with some other really excellent musicians and bands, including the Christian Porter Band (aka christianporter on tumblr), The Pfeiffer Twins, and The Lost Ramblers!

Since I’m posting one of Juggernaut String Band's publicity shots, let's call this Music Monday!

The featured artist August gallery show has my pieces hanging on four walls. This wall includes Juggernaut String Band’s album cover lineart and a print of Neon Gumbo as well as the final and alternate cover for the June 2014 “Rivals” issue of 225. That’s a real (and my only) copy of the magazine hanging in the top frame, with its “about the cover artist” blurb photocopied from the interior.
Earned my first sunburn at Rehoboth Beach last Wednesday (which makes this a fitting Watercolor Wednesday) while I painted this study of the family at the beach in front of my own blanket. Since I traveled home on Thursday, this means I failed to resist drawing literally every day I was on vacation.
Yesterday was a good day for me and comics. Among other events, I hung out with and got a critique from a pro! Of course my work is clumsy next to the portfolio of someone who’s worked in the industry longer than I’ve been alive, but I’m highly inspired and looking for opportunities to practice and apply what I learned. My next steps on the path to improvement are illuminated through his advice, and I’m eager to get working.
The Juggernaut String Band WNTI Stage set on Saturday went well. We even got some time in the air-conditioned van that WNTI was broadcasting out of, and our band leader did an interview with the host.
Here’s another reason to "like" Juggernaut String Band on facebook for more updates and information—aside from our awesome music—half our band is female! Cat Burbage plays drums, bass, and sings (sometimes all at once!) and I play trombone, bass, and sing. Lady power!
