If you didn't know Dame Darcy, you'd think she wasn't a real person. But she's one of the most real, down-to-earth eccentric and hard working artists in the world. What's the old saying? Its okay to B.S. if you can back it up? Dame Darcy cannot be denied in either her resume, work ethic and just volume of producing artistic works. Best known for her 1990's comic book sensation, "MEAT CAKE," Dame Darcy has generated a major following as one of the first female comic books artists to really gain exceptional recognition as such, and is currently on a world wide promotional tour. She's also as gifted of an author as she is comic book artist, and had also written and drawn for the likes of the legendary Neil Gaiman (Sandman) and notorious artist, Alan Moore (The Watchmen). Dame Darcy in addition to her visual side is a proficient singer and banjo picker and has recorded with a surprising number of famous musicians, including the much beloved Tiny Tim. The interview ends on a very interesting, in depth account of a highly public scandal regarding Dame Darcy's legitimate possession of Kurt Cobain's hair, her attempt to sell it at auction and Courtney Love doth protesting too much over the whole thing. NOTE: I need to publish a correction of sorts. In the introduction of the audio, I overstate Darcy as having been the first female comic book artist to be published. There have been many but what I was going for is that she has been one of the more trendsetting and famous as such and helped to break open the field for women in an incredibly male dominated industry and we might say, made a case through her work to show other kinds of women beyond busty super heroines and while doing that, generated work that became cross over to having appeal to both sexes. So no offense meant to any of the female comic book artists of the past I assure you!
