Red face Ray Fillet song

Besides being a cartoonist, I also write goofy songs. This month, I embarked on a "February Album Writing Month" challenge to write 14 songs in the month of February! The very last one I finished (and the first one I started) was an homage to Ray Fillet/Man Ray from which I come at it in the comic-book-nerdiest way possible.

You can check it out here: http://fawm.org/songs/17056/
I'm gonna release a more-properly-mixed version on an album (also called "Ray Fillet") next month. I hope y'all like it!

Ray Fillet will save the day
Until they cancel his comic book
But I'll always have the action figure
Oh my gosh... this is awesome! You are awesome! Ray Fillet is awesome!!!

Do more! Assuming those are your vocals, you've got a real Weird Al Yankovich vibe!

Also, I absolutely need to see your drawing of Ray published in issue #5 (assuming it's real, of course)!

Thanks a lot! Yep, that's me singing.
Let me see if I can find that issue 5 somewhere.
I also had a drawing of Jagwar printed in issue 16! Lol.
Mind you, these are awful drawings...

But issue 5 was the intro to Ray Fillet...so that can't be right....

Great song.

Catskill, NY? That's gotta be one of the best names for a hometown ever! Right up there with Skullbone, TN and Bucksnort, TN.

You drew him pretty good! Very few kids tried to employ shading in those fan art submissions, and you actually used it quite effectively!

Aw, well, thanks for defending my young self.
I do kinda hope I'm doing a little better now, though:

Hey, I always liked how the Fan Art staff planned that showcase of art in Issue #14! It was really cool to see each character represented by a different artist and superimposed onto a custom designed background. Rarely did a fan art page leave me so impressed as that one!

Also, do you have a link where I could download your song (assuming you want people to do that, of course)?

You better believe it! It's a bit reminiscent of John K (which, I'd rather not get into how greatly that disturbs me), but not so much that I can't appreciate it. This would make great art for a MM parody comic (ala Hedden & McWeeney's TMNT comics). ^_^ Might that have been your intention?

Wow, I agree. I didn't recognize you at first, but your Mutanimals portrait is one of my favorite pieces of TMNT fan art! You've got a whole bunch of great art on your site! I think you've got the talent to make your song into an epic music video showcasing some of your art!

Naw, I was just drawing what it would look like if I got to design a MM animated series (which is why they look like their proposed saturday morning incarnation with Ninjara and the wrist communicators and such). I didn't think it looked any more crazy than Ken Mitchroney and Mike Kazalah's stuff (though Ken's got more action cred).

Aw, thanks! I wish I had time to get such a music video together, but between my job and my webcomic, it's hard to squeeze in time to make animated music videos.
