This is a story I wrote and drew for the Image anthology “This is a Souvenir” back in 2008.
It took the same approach that their earlier books based on Tori Amos and Belle & Sebastian songs did, except this time we were influenced by an obscure UK band from the 90’s called Spearmint. I was asked to contribute, but I didn’t know ANYTHING about the band.
After listening to a few tracks I discovered one song, “This is a Souvenir” (which also happened to be the name of the collection) was about their love of the band Pavement, which is my favorite band. I adapted the song, which is about things that trigger memory, and tailored it to my own experiences. Some of this story actually happened, some of it is made up.
The book didn’t do that well, I don’t think, and last month I discovered that all my original files were missing from my hard drive. But then I found proofs that my girlfriend at the time had made for me, so I just spent the last couple hours scanning and cleaning them up. So here they are!
(I would also like to mention that I did use the artwork from the original Pavement 7” - credit goes to guitarist Scott “Spiral Stairs” Kannberg.)
