NO.17 SWOLLEN I’m a little behind on these Inktober drawings(life🤷🏻♂️) here’s another. In my youth TYPE O NEGATIVE was one of my top 3 favorite bands besides Failure and Soundgarden. Peter Steele had a humor that matched my own. Peter and his band are forever intertwined with my past. This is an excerpt from his last interview. (The last picture is my ancient ⛔️ tattoo) YOU APPEARED IN THE AUGUST 1995 ISSUE OF PLAYGIRL. WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT, WAS THAT A MISTAKE?
“Yeah. It made me look arrogant. But I thought the whole thing was a joke. They sent me some past issues and I told them I would do it under one condition: my d!@k had to be hard. All the others were flaccid. The woman from Playgirl said, ‘Do you really think you can do it erect?’ I said, ‘You bring the check and keep your end up, I’ll keep mine.’” SO HOW MUCH DID THEY PAY YOU?
“$2,000. At the time it wasn’t a lot. The whole thing was fucking stupid. Back then, I was engaged to a woman – how on earth was I going to fucking tell her? When the issue came out, my sisters discovered it in a candy store on the subway. They brought it home and showed my mother, whose comment was: ‘That’s why I named him Peter’ [which is derived from the Greek word petros, meaning ‘stone’]. At least she had a sense of humour.” Metal Hammer issue#206 2008 #inktober#inktober2018#ink#prismacolorpens#prismacolormarkers#number17#swollen#petersteele#typeonegative#typeonegativeforever#nonemoreblack#casketcrew#nonemorenegative#brooklyn#brooklynmooks#thegreenman#greenman#jollygreengiant#restinpieces
