PJ McQuade – LA Weekly

Got an illo in this week’s LA Weekly, out today.  I modeled the surfer after Swayze from Point Break, with lots more tats, couldn’t resist putting a shark on his shoulder.  Anyway, looks like it’s getting hot in Malibu.  Go Surfers!

Sleepy Malibu in Political Upheaval, with surfers out to take power,
Who knew that a green plan to dredge and remake Malibu Lagoon so the listless water would flow better into the Pacific would instead split this environmentally aware town in half, cause a surfer uprising in which a bunch of surf bums decided to run for City Council to stop the dredging, and otherwise roil the ritzy village by the sea..

    Nice one – and you certainly picked the right surfer for inspiration! That movie is a guilty pleasure.
