Riot On The Dragstrip!
Here's my cover for issue #4 of cool Edmonton garage zine Dragstrip Riot! from back in 1996. The '90s surf revival was picking up speed at the time so I thought I would offer a depiction of Canadian surfin' culture for this cover. Editors Allan and Jeff asked me to contribute a comic strip to future issues of the mag so I conceptualized a serialized epic about the adventures of Tot McFarlane, the spoiled rotten ultra-rich preteen tyrant of the comic book and collectible toy industry, but sadly issue 4 was the finalé for DR and I never actually got a chance to draw any of the strips. Oh well. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
