The Muse Blues
The second strip is entitled The Muse Blues. The piece is an homage of sorts to the short film Life Lessons, Martin Scorsese’s contribution to the anthology film New York Stories. The idea being that end of that film is the jumping off point for this strip.
An interesting side note: This strip was originally going to be called The Muse Cooze Blues, a title that I was extremely proud of for both for its bouncy, sing-song rhythm as well as its straight forward crassness. However, cooler heads prevailed and this slightly abridged version was settled on. Apparently no one’s ever heard of the word “cooze”.
