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.

Guided By Voices Minipop From Flip Flop Flyin'

Flip Flop Flyin' is the odd and extremely awesome home of Craig Robinson, English artist and animator. I first stumbled upon the site and Robinson's Minipops, tiny pixelated drawings of rock/rap bands and pop culture figures, a few years back. One of the primary linking themes of Robinson's work are characters drawn in an 8-bit video game style. Lo and behold, Guided By Voices were represented by this minipop...

Cool, huh? Definitely GBV circa 1995, what with the Alien Lanes drumhead, Mitch Mitchell, Jim Greer and Tobin Sprout minipops. And you gotta love the animated everlasting big kick Bob!

Please surf around the rest of Flip Flop Flyin' for more good clean fun including Pete and Bob (two owls who like to dance), Mapping Bruce (maps of places sung about by Bruce Springsteen, including many locales near my New Jersey hometown), 30 Ballparks (silhouettes of baseball parks), and photos of things stuck in trees.
