Another ‘When You Awake’Â illustration. My friend Jody has a country music blog called When You Awake and she releases mixtapes every so often. This one was for the Halloween mixtape, Cold Blooded Country featuring murder ballads and general lunacy.
“Cause there’s nothin’ strange about an axe with bloodstains in the barn
There’s always some killin’ you got to do around the farm.”
Murder in the Red Barn by Tom Waits
A hard type of man, livin the rough n’ tumble life.
Another illustration for my friend Jody’s country music blog, When You Awake. [link] It’s the cover for a mixtape of country songs about men leading hard lives.
I was thinking of country stars in jail and so the character is loosely based on a young Merle Haggard and I was thinking of Mayberry for the jail cell.

This was a really fun one. Sopelana on deviant art posted a drawing of someone in a spacesuit standing on a little moon. He left the helmet empty so that people could go in and draw whatever they liked inside. I decided to make mine a little fish-man astronaut. The other little fish swims around in there and gives him grief.
Here is the blank drawing in case you want to do your own.
