The above BG has a little inside story to it, back in high school, I was in a lot of bands, and when touring acts come through they would often stay at my parent’s house. And because Utah is a damned desert, they would often show up in near-broken-down vans and campers. I thought I would memorialize those experiences of taking bands to auto shops early in the morning in hopes that they wouldn’t miss their next tour date by putting a broken down trailer in this BG.
While it may not be obvious to most, the drawing above is a loving tribute to one of America’s greatest film treasures: Tremors. The sunken car, the lighter, the homemade bombs… the big hole on the side of the cliff. How could I draw a desert scene with a cliff face and not include some Tremors references?! I could not, obviously!
