Ode to an Unfashionable Pop Song....

'Ode to an Unfashionable Pop Song' is a short comic done for a section called 'Various Artists' on the music section of the website of graphic novel artist Tim Bird. It is a one page comic about the Chris De Burgh song 'Say Goodbye to it All'

'Various Artists' requires creators to produce a short, one page story about a particular song or musician. I figured there are lots of comics about Sonic Youth so thought I would try something different. Here is the comic and accompanying sketches of Chris and his bassist Pino Palladino who played on many of Chris De Burgh's eighties recordings. You can see the other contributions to the section on the link below as well as check out the excellent work of Tim Bird.....
