Deltron 3030: Collector's Card Deck for Dan The Automator, San Diego Comic Con

Dan Nakamura, a.k.a. Dan The Automater is one of the most influential music producers of today. He has produced Gorillaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Lovage, pizzicato five, Cibo Matto and Pillowfight among many others. He is having a panel at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con and a group of comic artist got together to make a collector's card deck depicting each stage of Dan's career and the musicians he's helped to create. I got the section about Del the Funkee Homosapien and his epic dystopian hip hop space opera album, Deltron 3030 and about DJ, Kid Koala (who is in the background on the top left). I normally don't listen to hip hop or turn-table genre and I got to discover a lot of great new music by doing this project which was awesome. 

The panel will be held at July 19th Saturday at 7 pm. The lucky attendees will take home the hot-off-the-press color card deck with awesome illustrations including mine above, so if you are gonna be at SDCC, check out the panel!
