I have a new print! It’s a mole who has burrowed out of the ground to stare at the cosmos. It may or may not have been inspired by various Carl Saganisms. Available to buy from my etsy shop - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/171514228/illustration-print-of-a-mole-staring-at

As You Were #2 got a positive review in the new MRR! But, don’t worry, they did single my comic out as not so great.
all i took from this is that i am awesome. thanks again, MRR, for always dissing Mitch, but making sure to point out i’m great.
(even though i never read you.)
Yeah, that’s right, my comics are FUCKING GREAT! Thanks Maximum RocknRoll
But if you want to see what all the hubbub is about, order a copy of AS YOU WERE #2 from Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club!
Interior illustration for the Copyscams 10” record. The brief was ‘draw band members thinking of themselves as cats’.
"The Copy Scams are a the band equivalent to a 24 hour zine!
Steve was visiting Portland from the UK and thought it might be fun to start a band while he was in the US. While he was in Portland he lived in a closet in the basement of the Spiral house and tricked housemates Alex, Paul and Marc to form a band in three weeks before the 2010 Portland Zine Symposium.
The decided to be a zine themed bank and In those three weeks they wrote 4 songs about zines, practiced, made a lo-fi recording, then played a show to end the Portland Zine Symposium weekend.
Giz missed the show because he had to fly back to France so he convinced them they needed him as a second guitarist and that they needed to do a UK tour.
Steve wrote more riffs and 3 more songs were written with the help of the internet. In the autumn of 2012 Alex, Paul, and Marc flew over to the UK from the US and Giz came over from France where they sorted out the new songs and recorded them and re-recorded the old ones then played a couple shows before going their separate ways again.
What you have here is 7 fun pop-punk songs about zines by folks who make and love zines.”
