A Musical Monday Bonus: Requests/Suggestions
Dragon*Con is coming up soon, and while I'm not totally sure whether I'll be able to make it, I do have some "musical sketchbook" ideas in mind for some of the artists who'll be attending. (There is also the question of how much I'll be able to afford, and whether the artists will have time to do sketches...but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.)
The guest I most want a sketch from is Steve Dillon...but while I'm sure most people will be asking him for Punisher sketches, I'd love to get a drawing of one of his earliest creations: Mysta Mystralis, Laser Eraser. And the lyric to accompany the character: "Gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam," from Queen's Killer Queen.
(Mind you, I would someday like to get a Punisher sketch in this book, just so I can have Frank Castle saying "I hate people when they're not polite.")
I also want to get a Karl Kesel sketch of Jimmy Olsen, with the warning "Be careful, his bowtie is really a camera."
And if possible, I'd like getting Jim Starlin to do a drawing of the In-Betweener, captioned with the line from "Accentuate the Positive": "Don't mess with Mr. In-Between!" (Alternately, Ian Dury's "Inbetweenies" could also work...)
And now, I'd like to open the floor for suggestions for other "musical sketches." Not necessarily specific to the artists attending DragonCon (since I doubt I'd be able to afford that many sketches), but just ideas of other comic characters and song lyrics that could go with them. Does anybody have any "musical sketch" ideas of their own?
