I always thought if I traveled to enough parts of the world and hunted down enough exotic females and rare art pieces worth flipping to obsessive collectors, that, that kind of action would be enough to warrant enough tolerance for being a teacher by day.
It's not, I met up with Brian Pulido at Albuquerque Comic Con and while he nicely and respectively said he is in this comics to write great stories and make enough money to feed his family, I replied that I was in this business to crush the Big Two, or at least provide them with some minor discomfort. It's like Dusty Rhodes said,
"If you're not going for the title, then what's the fucking point?"
This literary sojourn to The Land of Enchantment aka New Mexico will mark our third chapter in The American Safari, as more and more past, present and future commissions will be promoted, over inflated and eventually flipped to a man sitting in a hotel room surrounded by cash, drugs, sushi and a bunch of women who he doesn't love.
Life is grand at Faro's Lounge.
Traveling to a lot of different events and comic conventions you always end up at some point at some major chain branded restaurant paying way too much money for glorified school lunch fingers and mash.
And yet I watched people endlessly walking in and out of the Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant like zombies carrying stacks of those bland Hard Rock shirts that just have different cities on them so all of your asshole friends know which Hard Rock Cafe you've been to.
Faro's Lounge is your getaway from all of that. Our sketchbooks come with anecdotes when other companies use filler. Our comics are 32 pages of action when other companies give you 24 pages, some of which are ads or cheesy splash pages because of their weak writing.
Comics are at a premium price these days, especially the Mature Collector Covers, so with so many of us after that dirty green paper you worked so hard for, don't you want to make sure the relationship you build with an art broker is one that will inspire you to chase and construct real live fantasies, as well as having the perfect addition to your wall of treasures.
New Mexico resident Franchesco is hanging out in Faro's Lounge again for this latest Kickstarter, which will be for a new 24 page Sketchbook done up in the theme of a TATTOWINE TOUR GUIDE.
The inspiration, besides all the rumored UFO and Alien activity always rumored to exist in the Southwest of this country, along with all of the fascinating stories of The Wild West, is my many cross country drives through The Painted Desert and how the latest chapter in the Faro Saga railroads right through New Mexico.
Now what do I mean by Tattowine Tour Guide, well I'm glad you asked.
Our first Faro's Lounge Book -- Winterfell (Alaska) had a mixed theme of mature humor and the occasional anecdote and fan fiction foray.
Our second Faro's Lounge Book -- Mojo & The Dazzler (Florida) had a full on SLAVE LEIA STEEL BIKINI THEME thanks to all of the successful Slave Leia Themed Commissions we have been selling for the past year and a half.
This third sketchbook will be a mix of both, Slave Leia pieces mixed in with Strip Poker pieces, mixed in with stories, mixed in with Pixi Dust, as we will be going with a CLOAK & DAGGER THEME for this cover, which will have our STEEL BIKINI COVER along with TOPLESS VARIANT POSTER & CENTERPIECE SHOT in the SKETCHBOOK.
And with all the recent headaches, heartaches, and haterade being directed towards everything and everyone Star Wars, perhaps our Faro's Lounge Tattowine Tour Guide will be the one to help light the spark that will God willingly save The Star Wars Franchise.
Everyone has a dream my friends, I've already lived mine and have started the next one, you're currently looking at it.
This is the greatest job in the world, and its because of you that I get to keep doing it.........so from me and my boss (A Bulldog) we salute you,
Thanks for getting this far down the column, now buy yourself a sketchbook and let me take you on a ride.
Risks and challenges
We got this my friends. Two sketchbooks already in the can and we are developing the new Slave Leia shots and other inked pics from Jose Varese's archives.
Then of course its about harassing Franchesco until he delivers another lovely cover. That is once he comes out of his Jedi cave :).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
