I’ve known Moby for over 25-years. He’s got a big heart and his ambient music, especially the second disc that came with his album, “Hotel,” is one of the best examples of his beautifully haunting music I’ve ever heard. The song “Blue Paper,” in particular, got me through a tough time when my brother passed away in 2005. In 2011 Moby graciously gave me some original songs to consider for a motion comic version of my Valentine’s comic, “The Angel.” When Webtoon Head of Content Tom Akel alerted me that they were going to produce a Red Hook promo-video, I let him know I might have an original Moby song they could use. When I was in L.A. last summer, I attended Moby’s 50th birthday party and told him I was starting work on a brand new webcomic series and he seemed to dig the idea of The Red Hook. He recently congratulated me on my NY Times article. He’s always been nice to me. I’d love to draw something for him someday.
