I Wear the Sun

i want to strip
& spread a blanket
on the Boulevard
in Santa Monica
and sip a Coke
and wear Dark Glasses
and bleach the tips
of my hair
and pretend
everyone thinks
i wear the sun

LULU Arrival 2.Lulu’s clumsiness sends the train to 1 million years BC. Art by Rob Goldstein

It’s finally time!  I’ve been promising you a short story with illustrations by Rob Goldstein.  Lulu, Gramps, and Valentino are joined by a couple of unexpected characters in this one episode story.  I call it “One Million Years B-Lulu.”  It’s a little riff on “One Million Years BC,” which featured Raquel Welsh.  Don’t ask me why that particular scenario popped into my head.  I’ve told you that I’m just not wired right. The three random things Rob gave me to drive the story are velociraptor, stone axe, and capacitors.

Rob is featuring the story as a guest post today at Sue Vincent‘s blog, so I hope you’ll click over and visit them.  I’m posting it here as well.  Without further ado…

All aboard!

Hullaba Lulu: One Million Years B-Lulu

Teagan Geneviene and I collaborated on a ‘Lulu’ story for Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo.

My part was making illustrations and a video; for that, I took a break from social media.

Thanks to Sue for being the inspiration for this collaboration with Teagan.

I’m honored to share a guest spot on Sue’s blog.

I learn when I take on a project like this, and it’s fun to illustrate a character as surreal as ‘Lulu’.

I want the graphics to reflect the spirit of Teagan’s story.

I hope I’ve done that with this video.
