The future of Punker Bob

First off, I would like to thank everyone for reading and supporting this book/blog project. I have enjoyed the discipline of making drawings and posting a new story each week during the past six months.

I do have some big news to share. This project will be turned into a physical book and set to be released in the summer of 2015. Punk historian, professor, and author David Ensminger (Left Of The Dial: Conversations With Punk Icons and Visual Vitriol: The Street Art and Subcultures of the Punk and Hardcore Generation) has tentatively agreed to be the editor. Our very own Sonny Kay (Angel Hair/VSS/GSL Records) has agreed to be the aesthetic director and design the layout. I greatly admire both David’s and Sonny’s work and feel honored by their willingness to be part of this project.   

At the moment, I’m not sure if there will be a fundraiser campaign for the project, that is something to be decided by the end of summer. Here is the timeline.

December 2014: Complete art and writing
Spring 2015: Editing and Layout
Summer 2015: Book release in Denver

I will be returning home to Denver this summer to visit family, reconnect with friends, and conduct interviews and research for this project. If you have some old photographs, fliers or have a story to share, I would very much like to speak with you. You can contact me by clicking here.

With that all said, Punk Bob will be taking a break and will return in early August with a batch of fresh writings and artwork.

See you in Denver.
