It's been a while since I posted any Secret Stash material, but I have a bumper crop today. Many of the characters in WELCOME TO THE ZONE are based on people I knew in the New York music and poetry scenes during the 80s and 90s. Here are some drawings from my sketchbook of a few of them, paired with panels showing their WELCOME TO THE ZONE equivalents.
Cindy Lee Berryhill is the model for Candy Lou Heatherhock, seen here about to wallop an unfaithful boyfriend. Cindy Lee was one of the few antifolkers who scored an actual record contract, in her case with Rhino/ Capitol, and she continues to perform to this day.
Here is a video of Cindy Lee from 1994: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93rJie0ok88
