R.M. O'Brien and Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez An interview with two Wham City-affiliated artists… in comic form!

My friends R.M. O’Brien (of Robert Inevitable & The Static and Nuclear Power Pants) and Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez (who released an album on Carpark several years ago) are both Baltimore-residing, Wham City-affiliated artists who have in recent years turned from making a lot of music to making a lot of poetry. They have recently released a chapbook of collaborative poems titled Birds Blur Together (and are currently on tour promoting it), which gave me an excuse to hang out with them, watch Bob Ross, and talk about what it’s like to write poetry instead of music.

Since I do comics around these parts, I decided to do one about how the interview went down.
