But it's all cool you know 'cause we're like adventurers
As you may all know by now, Be Your Own Pet is breaking up. I am so sad about it. I can honestly say that Jemina is probably my favorite frontgirl among all the current bands I've seen. I love the way she moves like she's possessed, her head banging during the drum part in "Bicycle", her adorable retro side to side bop, jumping on drumsets and on bandmates, bruised up and all over the place. It probably helps that I love their music/sound too. You know how I love energetic effin punk rock. She's the best front girl I've seen live. I remember the first time I heard "Damn Damn Leash", I was like "who is that?!" And how much do I love "Fire Department"? Oh, and the way she plopped that ice cream cone on top of that baby's head. I'm sure they will go on to other bands and endeavors, but I think BYOP was definitely an awesome band.
Finished this illustration today. It took me a long time to figure out every detail because you know I have to do Jemina's cool some justice.
