I went to The Short Stop on Monday night for Motown and Jim Mahfood (AKA Food One). My brother gave me Mahfood’s recent collection of autobio comics, “LA Ink Stains”, a few months back, and I ate it up. The black and white comics read like interesting lists of people, places, and events. Some of the events are live paintings (often on naked ladies) so I was stoked to have the chance to see him in action. It was like looking into the gutters of his comics (technically speaking). He painted as the crowd looked to the ceiling singing Jackson 5 and took turns spilling their drinks while dancing under the moving, blue polka-dotted lights.
I tried to incorporate the text in Food One way.
