  Oh man...thanks for saying all the nice stuff you guys.

This is probably more background than anyone asked for, but the drawing is of a rollercoaster that used to be in Ohio. I'd heard about this amusement park that went out of business in the 70's, and I guess they just fenced it up and forgot about it...so I did a bunch of internet research to figure out where it was so I could break in and see it, but apparently a ton of other people had the same idea waaay before me. I found a bunch of local news articles and tons of photos...this drawing is pretty heavily based on one of those photos with a few variations for composition. Hope that's ok. The place is completely overgrown and really amazing in a kind of weird post-apocalyptic way.

The heartbreaking part was that for whatever reason, I kinda stumbled across all the information about this park in chronological order...first there's people breaking in and taking photos (so now I'm excited about getting out there), then it hits the internet and everyone finds out about it and it becomes "totally not cool," neighbors get pissed and complain to the city (which means I don't have a lot of time), some dude decides to make a probably-terrible horror movie in it (gross, but whatever...I'm still totally into it), and then finally, just as I've all but packed up the car for a weekend trip, I find out that the whole place got bulldozed so some company could put in a health spa. Apparently it happened at the beginning of spring, pretty much at the same time I was finding out about it.

Uh, so yeah, the short version of all that is that it's not the Valleyfair one.

Also, I guess the secret's out: I live with DNML and enjoy the Coke Zero.

  I saw the thumbnail for this and thought "Yeah, that looks about right for a Sissy Spacek poster" and then investigated further. Figures.

Good to see you on here Mr. John Wiese.

  This was a sort-of blind collaboration with a friend who works at a place called The MVA. I did the white part, he did the silver part. There's a weird gloss varnish flat on top of pretty much the whole thing.

Vast Aire played a bunch of CannOx songs at this show, which I wasn't really expecting. It was rad.

  Thanks everyone! There's another version (on brown paper) that's on the Landland site, but this one turned out better.

  Thanks! I've been sitting on a lot of this stuff for a while, going back and forth about good ways to shoot or scan it. I think I've finally got it...good enough anyway, so hopefully I'll have stuff on here with a bit more regularity.
