The Faro's Lounge American Safari continues all the way back to the Left Coast as I entice you with stories from my days combing up and down the Pacific Coast Highway in an adventure I can only describe and title as,

CALI-PORNIA

Putting out the best covers and commissions in the business requires more then simple cash and comics.

It needs imagination, which can only be brought on by inspiration, which can only be brought on by adventure.

Right after 9/11 left New York in shambles, I took some modeling money and took off for what I hoped would be my own writer's adventure along the lines of Raymond Chandler and Charles Bukowski.

Somehow in the process, I became a porn star.

The story of how and why will unfold in this latest sketchbook, so whether you're a fan of our women or our words we are happily honored to welcome you into our cult of comics, comedy and commissions converted into cash.

I didn't get into adult films for the cash, which was awesome, I did it for the story,

I was looking to write a murder mystery set in the porno industry, I truly believed a writer must immerse himself in his character, otherwise you're just a glorified journalist.

TIMOAX & XAOMIT -- The Wolf Twins -- Soon to be making their debut in the Faro Series
TIMOAX & XAOMIT -- The Wolf Twins -- Soon to be making their debut in the Faro Series

The  concept of Faro's Lounge started because we've had so many requests to turn our past commissions into posters and other assorted forms of art.

While I always love new posters, when it comes to private commissions, I truly believe the honor of the colored version, especially when it is watercolor painted as opposed to digital, then I feel the person who purchased the original should be the only one to have access to the color.

Our sketchbooks feature the Black & White versions, enhanced with some topical and sometimes dirty humor,

Comics are about escapism, as is any form of good writing,

When I entered the adult industry, I wanted to go through the daily chores and rewards, I wanted to see the downside, the risks, the fear, and sometimes, even among a pile of naughty and nimble sexual conquests in a city filled with silicone,

The loneliness,

Out of all the stops I've taken on this magical American Safari, California is the one of the top 5 in terms of memories and melons.

The women are as amazing as David Lee Roth claims, and I'm talking about the ones who were born and bred there, as opposed to the actress plane that arrives and departs daily out of Burbank Airport, another treasure trove in itself if you ever worked the Vegas-LA run on no sleep and full testosterone.

It's been a writer's life, thanks for making it to the halfway point, it only gets better,

One day you're a college kid whacking off to a Chasey Lain scene,

Next thing, you're fucking Chasey Lain in a hotel in Beverly Hills,

And she's a birthday present from your wife,

Like I said, the stories from my scars are real,

But by all means, go check out the other guys,

If you're going to have Variant Covers, I believe a good writer should have Variant Interiors,

Being on Kickstarter and studying a million other Kickstarter campaigns and comic books, it's hard not to develop a chip on your shoulder when regarding all the competition for your dollars,

The guarantee we offer here is authenticity behind even the most outlandish of stories,

Because as a writer, I threw out all logic and hope of a normal life the day I picked up my first Batman comic book and decided that was going to be my life obsession.

TO BE THE REAL BRUCE WAYNE

OR PERHAPS THE FIRST FARO KANE :)

Whether you come for the art or the stories, we've got your entertainment fetish covered,

And as always I promise to blow every ounce of profit on enough excess to inspire the next adventure in the next sketchbook,

We have some crazy Wonderfully Wild Covers Coming Up as this American Safari Continues,

Slave Leia Betty & Veronica coming soon --

Popeye Chicken Ranch coming soon --

Gwen & Mary Jane ESU Dorm Room Pajama Party coming soon --

You have marveled at the artistic wonders of Jose Varese and Emil Cabaltierra,

Now welcome back our man from Brazil -- HIQUE -- who first joined up with us to do some Dragoncon Variant Covers, then stuck around to deliver this Spider Chopper Masterpiece that is still one of our best sellers,

The new FRENCH VARIANT COVER -- In Production
The new FRENCH VARIANT COVER -- In Production

Never to rest on our laurels, its time to get the next duo of topless tango when Gwen & Felicia go joy riding on a VENOM CHOPPER,

Only here folks, we pride ourselves in making the old dusty mainstream crap that much better,

At least until they hire us, or kill us, or shut us down,

When you're riding on the wave of eternity,

What's the difference????

 You've made it to the end, and you're still looking for more art,

Take a hike you high maintenance fuck :)

Cheers my friend, and welcome to or welcome back,

To the Ultimate Cult in Comics,

Risks and challenges

25 Projects Strong -- we have survived mainstream shutdowns, unruly disgruntled former artists, two ex wives, a government intervention and an alien invasion. The only thing we haven't mastered is the art of the deadline, but our stuff is so fuckin worth it.
