Gabba Gabba... Hey

 Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier!

I'm trying to get a sketchbook together at the last minute for SDCC...

 This was a sketch of Dee Dee for a proposed cover for 'Tank Girl - Skidmarks'.

  There'd have have been a Tank and VW fling along in the foreground if it'd been commissioned...

 Barbara Zampini was kind enough to let us use Dee Dee as a character.. which as definitely a thrill for me... I couldn't be in the Ramones, so I drew them instead... 

  I've been a Ramones fan since I could stand. My Dad's responsible for a lot of my musical taste.... and my rapidly disappearing hearing!
