Daron’s Guitar Chronicles is continuing its summer of fanworks, and I’m easily led, so when someone asked me to draw Colin I couldn’t resist giving him a rock star on each arm. I love how this really shows how short Daron and Ziggy are, but my favorite detail is the little hole in Ziggy’s fishnet shirt, though Daron’s adorable blush is a close second.

This summer, Daron’s Guitar Chronicles is only posting once a week (woe!) while Cecilia writes a bunch of other things she’s likely being paid better for. So, her fans are stepping up to the plate and taking over the other posting day!
After a bit of discussion in the comments, it was decided the rest of Moondog 3 needed to take the spotlight. On the left we have Bart, the bassist, with his red bow tie and angelic curls. On the left is Christian, the drummer, tall and skinny with the kind of hair you’d expect from a drummer in an ’80s band.

I’m finishing out my week of Valentines with a couple of literal (if fictional) rock stars!
I’ve done art for Daron’s Guitar Chronicles before, and this time I decided to echo (though not copy) a famous David Bowie pose for my two favorite on-again, off-again rock stars. They’re definitely on again here, with Ziggy firmly ensconced between and wrapped around Daron’s legs.

Now that Ziggy’s finally back in Daron’s Guitar Chronicles, I couldn’t resist drawing him, too! Everything’s a performance for Ziggy, so I drew him onstage much like Daron, half out of his frilly shirt and looking emo about whatever power ballad they’re about to sing. No telling if this is a glimpse of the real him, or just another performance, but it’s Ziggy all over, either way.
When asked for comment, Daron just said Ziggy’s nipples were cute, so go figure.
I decided to put Daron & Ziggy together in my Etsy shop, so if you want adorable male nipples on a greeting card, now’s your chance! If you want to get your grabby hands on the originals, they’ll be in July’s Floating Gallery. Just try not to make Daron too jealous.

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.
