Chronicling the creative process for Pop Zeus, the forthcoming Guided By Voices/Bob Pollard tribute comic- including sketches, concepts, finished art and whatever else is in my brain at the moment.

Original Robert Pollard "Mag Earwhig" Art On Ebay!



Apart from being the genius singer-songwriter behind Guided By Voices, Robert Pollard has also created most of the bands brilliant album cover collages. And not too long ago, Bob decided to put some of the pieces up for sale- an unprecedented move in the history of rock, dubbed "The Dazzling Year End Soul Sale". And the venerable Rich T has finally put the first piece up for grabs on eBay and it's a doozy!

The piece is called The Astral City Slickers but it is better known as the cover to 1997's awesome Mag Earwhig! The collage is a mere 5 1/8" X 5 1/8". But it is one of Bob's favorites and one of mine too (featured in my GBV mega-collage for Pop Zeus). It was displayed in the Rock And/Or Roll Hall Of Fame for a time and would look lovely on the Phil Szostak Wall Of Fame, heh.

Anyway, the auction is open to all right here. Five big ones is the opening bid (gentlemen, start your aholinrakes). I may be too broke for this amazing art but perhaps some lucky and spendy fan will get their claws on this!
