    SPREAD THE WORD!!! - JANUARY
    January 09, 2013

     

    Congratulations to Brandatello who won last months "Spread The Word Contest" chosen by Mike Dirnt!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I was super flipping impressed with the response to getting the word out about Dos! The Green Day Army are very artistic, talented, funny, and strange!  "My favorite kind of people" Alas, I must choose a winner, but before I do, I will say  my choice is based on the over all theme. There were many very creative, talented and funny entries, and yes, "I did view every one of them".

    The person I'm gonna follow is.......


    "Drum roll Tre"


    christycakes!  By  literally taking Dos to the streets and bringing a little joy to an area ravaged by Hurricane Sandy your entry showed a ton of heart! Congrats!

    Anyway that's it, but fear not, I will pick a new person to follow each month, so keep on being your bad ass, creative selves!
    See you soon!
    Mike

Greetings from the Jersey Shore, Mike! :) To spread the word about Dos, I figured it would be a good idea to draw the album art in the middle of the street in my neighborhood. Due to the intense damage from Hurricane Sandy, our neighborhood receives a lot of visitors, so everyone will see the drawing :)

Here is a picture of the drawing:
http://i50.tinypic.com/2la69ec.jpg

I made a poster, which I hung up in the center of my town in a popular shopping plaza where everyone will see. I also bought a few copies of Dos and donated them to local shelters to make people affected by the hurricane happy! I figured I'd pay it forward for a band who has made such a big impact on my life!

Here is a picture of the poster:

Here is a close up of the drawing (after 2 hours of drawing, it started smudging, I'm sorry!) :

Greetings from the Jersey Shore, Mike! :) I figured I'd draw the Dos album art in the street in the middle of my neighborhood. A lot of people come down here to see the destruction from Hurricane Sandy, so a lot of people will see the album art! I figured it would be a good way to promote your new album!

I also made a poster and hung it up at the center of our town in a shopping plaza, where people will see it. I also bought a few copies of Dos and donated them to our local shelter to make all the hurricane victims happy :) I figured I'd pay it forward for a band who has had such an impact on my life!

Ok, here's my video! Maybe isn't "Awesome as Fuck" but I hope you will appreciate my effort and you'll like it!
I also appear in this video but, y'know, sing is not my strong point (I prefer playing my guitar xD) so... Ok, just watch it!
Love from Italy,
Eleonora.

I made a Dos Bass!

I thought it was pretty apt, as we're both bassists, and I couldnt resist making my old p-bass a bit more dirnty! its all hand painted with acrylic and the stickers are home made and printed.  hope you like it:

Hi there,

Here's what I was able to come up with: http://i48.tinypic.com/2daaxlj.jpg
(It was only after I drew it I realized how pointless it is, but oh well. That's the beauty of comics, doesn't need to make sense, lol)

Honestly, I don't have an instagram. I do however have a DevientArt and Tumblr, though I don't expect you to follow me on those. Really, I just wanted to share my art with you. :)

Thank You for viewing my work & Good Luck to all,
~Mandolin
