Guest-Star: Louis Brazil

Long-time reader Louis Brazil features as the guest-star for today’s installment. Louis wrote in:

Hi Krishna,

So besides being a computer consultant to the creative industry (providing training, troubleshooting, and tech support for Macintosh systems to ad agencies, design firms, commercial printers, video houses, and recording studios), I am also a musician. The attached pictures are from a recent performance on a small jazz/pop drum kit I use.

I would love if you could incorporate my drumming into a tech theme… perhaps something with an iPhone or MacBook Air? Maybe something about how addicted we are to technology that even while playing music, we’re checking something on the Internet?

Let me know if you need more pictures, etc.

Thank you again,

Louis

So the challenge for me was to come up with a comic that tied Louis’ two passions: drumming and Macintosh. It was genuinely fun to work on. I love creating guest-star comics because they force me to think in directions I would never have gone before with The PC Weenies. With today’s toon, Louis’s avatar is now emblazed proudly on the Featured Guest Stars page. Will you be next?
