dolly & porter



Here's a quick ink sketch I did this morning of Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner. I'm going to draw them properly sometime, but here's a start anyway. I know most people would draw her in her surgically super-enhanced state, but I really like her in the late '60s and it was too early in the morning to think about facelifts and implants.


And breaking news, the second Fat Chunk anthology, edited by our DFC man Jamie Smart comes out, well, it was supposed to be next week, but apparently it's leaking onto shelves already! I had less than a week to turn in my contribution, but I delivered it just under the wire, yessiree.

Jamie says: Fat Chunk Volume Two includes work by over 60 artists crammed into just under 140 pages, all in a tidy digest size. Well known comic artists, new webcomic creators, toy designers and everyone else in between, from every corner of the globe, each contributing their own twisted take on the world of Zombiedom! Published by SLG Publishing, available to buy from your local comic shop (Diamond code APR090632), book shop, or from amazon etc! And lots more details here on its own website.

Oh nice. This is actually the first time I've seen somebody on the internet mention Porter Wagoner. I was a PA on the video in Nashville at the old prison.

Here's my flickr set from the shoot:

It is a nice video.

I must be one of the 12 people in France who've heard of Porter Wagoner...

Oh my goodness, what were the chances of that? :-D Thanks for letting us see the Flickr set!

I could spend a whole day on YouTube watching that duo. I am so willing myself not to right now. They're fabulous.

No problem! This was a couple of months before Porter passed away, but he was pretty active for an old guy. I've got a lot of stories from the couple of days I spent out there. The girl who is reading the book is a pretty interesting folk/country singer who spent the whole time chasing after Porter, making sure his hair was brushed. One of the orderlies who is forcing the suicide guy into the room was Porter's assistant, and he was a doouuuchebaaaaag.

Ooo, I so hope you've drawn Dolly and Porter! I want to see!! :-D

She has great hair and general sassiness, and he has such a wonderfully expressive face, and the hair, and the jackets ... so much fun to be had while drawing to a soundtrack.
