Panel from Marc Ellerby’s ‘I Went Away’
A couple of friends have pieces in the new Spearmint anthology from Image Comics, well worth checking out, but mention it as I’m very amused by this on Marc Ellerby’s lj:
…not that many people have actually heard of Spearmint and I must admit to being one of them. I popped into Gosh! yesterday and chatted to a clerk and they’re all convinced that Spearmint don’t actually exist and they’re made up. Which, sounds like something Matt Sheret would put together – an anthology based on song lyrics by a band that doesn’t actually exist.
See, the thing is, I actually have a whole folder of those. I wrote lyrics for band called onemillionjones for a couple of years, and have since kept them, edited them and added to them, building up a store of material I can dip in and out of when I’m writing.
On top of that something I’d love to do in the future is run a record label without any actual music, just beautiful sleeve designs, posters and t-shirts and some amazing press releases.
