RD Mauzy's 7" "Oppols Ond Bononos" is OUT NOW!

Been meaning to post about this for a couple of weeks - RD Mauzy's 7" "Oppols Ond Bononos" is out now, featuring artwork by the awesome and talented Jon Macy, Brian Andersen and Justin Hall, as well as yours truly! Can you tell how much I love it?!
My image for the back cover - a drawing of a teenage gay indie-boy eating a banana suggestively, was actually based on an art project I did at 16 which included photos of me doing the same, and the surrounding, sexually charged yearning scribblings from his diary, are lifted almost verbatim from my own teenage diaries. That was actually kind of painful to do but seemed to match the vibe RD wanted for the 7" so well.
I also did artwork for one of 4 interior illustrations. Mine was for the song "Apologetic Bananas", and was inspired by a line from the song, "I was grounded in the sand, I was blinded by the rain, I was shaken in the air, I was captured by the flame." And you know how I feel about the four Classical elements ;o)

I loved the diary entries. They were really honest and powerful.

Thanks, Jon! It was kind of weird and emotional - and even a bit upsetting - going back and reading those diary entries and copying them for this project!
