I was lucky enough to see ‘About Here to Be Heard: The Story of the Slits’ on Sunday as part of @sufffilmfest and it was stellar 🙌🏽
It made me realise though that I have not posted the finished artwork of the guitarist and my biggest punk rock icon @vivalbertine so here it is friends... maybe I should make some stickers?

One of the fringe benefits of working in film and television has been that I've gotten to meet and/or hang out with a lot of the heroes of my youth. During my first week working as an intern on a small indie film I was given the job of picking up Iggy Pop from NYC and drive him up to the location in Poughkepsie, NY. So for 2 hours I got to basically hang out with one of my favorite rock stars... for money. He couldn't have been a nicer guy. He was funny as Hell, engaging and a great listener as well as a wonderful conversationalist.

Funny thing happened, we got to our production office in Poughkepsie only to find out that they had to push back the dates of his scenes. Unfortunately he was going to be on tour during the dates they rescheduled. So I had to drive him back to his pad in Manhattan for another 2 hours.

I'll take the low pay and long hours working in indie films for the lifetime of stories I have gained by being around people like Iggy Pop.

This is my portrait of Iggy taken from his iconic photo from the lens of Mick Rock. I redrew the image and styled it with a fractal image I created. Like my Rollins portrait, this too is psychedelic even though I wouldn't consider Iggy Pop to be in that genre but the picture looks too good to pass up posting. Hope you dig my work.

‘Humans have a huge capacity to carry pain & sadness. There are things that haunt us our entire lives; we are unable to let them go. The good times seem almost effervescent & dreamlike in comparison with the things that didn’t go so well’ - Henry Rollins. Something extraordinary (but beautiful) happened to me today, which made me think of this quote & the time I met Henry. Funny, I relate more to him now than I ever did as a teenager #tb #henryrollins #punk #punkrock #punkrockicon #blackflag #quote

"Don’t accept what’s been going on beforehand. If you’ve got something to say, try and say it in a constructive way, and get up and have a go." - Paul Thomas 'Cookie' Cook (born 20 July 1956) #paulcook #musician #drummer of #thesexpistols #punklegends #sexpistols #punkrockicon #punkrock #punkmusic #punkrockneverdies #punkislife #punkispassion #musicispassion #musicislife #neverminthebollocks #godsavethequeen #anarchyintheuk #theprofessionals #vicgodardandsubwaysect

6.30.2018 New armor acquired. "The follow your dreams thing is really important because so many people are railroaded into taking other paths by their family, their friends, people who should be supportive going, 'What are you talking about?' Even just seemingly regular career paths, but if it's not what people expect for you they kind of react funny." "I like the way black looks. I think I look better in darker clothes. And maybe the fact that I wear black so much makes me more aware of putting people at ease. The black is sort of the bad-guy guise, so I work overtime to make people comfortable."

6.27.2018 Another capture by myself, #michaelpotoole of the other-worldly performance by miss #joanjettandtheblackhearts at #BlueHillsBankPavilion in #bostonma - seen here with drummer #michaelmcdermott bathed in red. Can confirm superheroes exist as I looked into the eyes of one of mine, who is a champion of DIY persistence with her and keyboardist/producer/manger #KennyLaguna's creation of @blackheartrecords after Joan's rejection from 23 major and minor record labels, of the same songs which went on to all become top ten hits. Use your gifts where and whenever possible, to affirm to both yourself and onlookers that it's worth sticking around to chase the whimsey of dreams in reality. With a #videographer / #photographer 's eye, a trip to even unofficially get to compose half-way decent shots with this someone I admire, who thanks to the power of media, has a voice and vision that echoed across speakers and screens years before I was accidentally conceived. Though my background is in film, music is visceral - how it feels to make this many people this happy on a near nightly basis, I can only imagine! Life is weird. Keep at it. "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you may hit stars." Thanks too, to less-sung heros, #TheBlackHearts road crew @crewicide and their speedy stage setup! Killer lighting by @anniestoic of @jackknifestiletto! In the same indie spirit, I've collected over 100 #podcast interviews with outsider artists, who have overcome their own obstacles, be it distribution or #mentalhealth, in the #newengland area and beyond at http://experimentallyill.com They say you should not meet your heroes, but why not shoot for stars like #joanjett #rocknroll #punkrock #concertphotography #stagevisuals #stagelighting #alternative #lighting #contrast #rockicon #punkrockicon #allblackeverything #mikeotoole #inspiration #motivation #jjlive #crewicide #blackheartrecords

My favorite Adolescents show was this one a few years ago at Alex's Bar in Long Beach. Steve was so into the interaction with the crowd. He was one of my all time favorite punk rock icons. Such a cool cat. Rest Steve, we all love you and will miss you greatly.
