John Paul Jones Phone Cases
Inspired by the lyrics of Gil Scott-Heron's stunning tribute song 'Lady Day and John Coltrane' I transferred the immortal Jazz legends here into a comic style super hero duo and hopefully tipped my hat to three of my favourite musicians in the process.

A portrait of Jim Jones, leader of The Peoples Temple church who famously committed mass suicide in the Guyana compound. This was feared by the families of the members of Jones' church, and they reported it to congressman Leo Ryan who went out to visit the compund on a mission of mercy. This kicked off a series of events which culminatd in Jones and his followers drinking the cyanide laced Flavour-Aid. Almost a thousand men women and children died and the conspiracy surrounding CIA involvment still raises questions today.

"Hello, my name is Paul. Do you have anything giant you'd like chopped down?" I love Paul Bunyan, even though I barely remember anything about him. What I remember: he's a enormous lumberjack who has a giant blue Ox named Babe as a pet. I think maybe one of his stories involved sweating so much he created the great lakes. Or maybe it was crying, but I don't get the feeling Paul really cried a lot. I also get the impression that Paul loves roadside attractions and breakfast. Maybe I'm projecting, though, as I also love roadside attractions and breakfast. Maybe Paul and I have a lot in common! Probably this is all we really have in common. I wonder if Paul was delivered by that drunk stork from Looney Tunes that brought a giant baby to a normal-sized couple that one time (HA HA - I love it when he teethes on the tire!). I also love that Babe isn't just a giant Ox, as if that wouldn't be outlandish enough. No, he is a giant BLUE Ox. Was he born blue? Is he from Monster Island like Godzilla (and in case that gets your gears turning, I call dibs on drawing a comic about Paul Bunyan fighting Godzilla! DIBS! I'm gonna do it!)? I suppose instead of endlessly speculating about Paul Bunyan I could probably go read something about him instead. Maybe I'll go do that in a bit. Until then, maybe baby Paul Bunyan made the Hoover Damn out of baby blocks! Maybe Paul Bunyan dug the Grand Canyon to poop in! Maybe Paul Bunyan invented the Big Gulp!
