“Love me better, kiss me back, listen more.” Hey guys. I’m listening to my Spotify as I finish posting for this Loveless Wednesday. Why not Apple music? Cause I don’t feel like recreating all of these awesome playlists I’ve made. This one is named “Pencil in hand” and has all of this music I can listen to no matter when I’m drawing.
The lyrics from above are from Childish Gambino’s track “Shadows”. Gambino is one of my favorite artists out (Weeknd is probably ahead of him when it comes to drawing Loveless). I will say he had to win me over though. My buddy Sherome, who is my favorite nerdy homie, would tell me I had to listen to “Camp” because Gambino was the perfect mix of our different types of nerdy (his more Japanese flavored one versus my “girls give my comic loving ass a pass because I tattoo” nerdiness). Well I tried and I just couldn’t get with it.
Well one day I gave it a full listen and the song “Heartbeat” was everything I needed. Talk about inspiration for Loveless!!! The feeling in the song was one that I try to embody in what Angel might be feeling in this comic (maybe even Cupid…spoiler alert).
Well it seems that this little meet up is going well. But wait… what did Kirsten just say? I don’t quite think it’s what Angel thought he was gonna hear. Wonder how this will go.
Well that’s it for this week. Go check out more Gambino. Because of the Internet and Kauai are my favorites. Till next week, peace.
PS: Only 5 more pages left in issue 1 (Well 6 if I count the new first page, but you guys won’t be seeing that for awhile anyway lol). I’m promising a cool ending. Okay…too cocky. Mediocre at least tho.
