I’ve been reading Daron’s Guitar Chronicles for years now, and finally this year for Cecilia Tan’s birthday, Daron got into my head and convinced me to draw a picture of him. It’s not entirely canon-accurate — the shirt with Ziggy’s handprint is supposed to be a different color, with the handprint in black hair dye, but I liked the red. And the guitar has about as much in common with Daron’s actual guitar as stick figures to humans, so, you know. Although, next time I draw a stringed instrument, I’m going to pull out my tiny Micron pens for the strings, brush pens are just not suited, at least in my wobbly fingers.
DGC is a story about being gay and in the closet in the late ’80s and early ’90s – and a rock star. The second big fat omnibus book is coming out via Kickstarter pretty soon, so if that sounds like something you’d enjoy, you can get both books or just go read it online for free.
