The Trans Werewolf Cowboy theme song is not available
Many movie themes and scores are not available on compact disc. As far as I know, this one is not on CD, nor on Spotify or iTunes!
I imagine Tim Curry’s performance of ‘Sweet Transvestite’ from the Rocky Horror Picture Show inspired this illustration.
Is this transvestite werewolf cowboy is a transexual or ‘only’ a transvestite, if he’s a drag queen or… What’s his story? I want to know!
And now I have the ‘Heartbroken’ earworm (from Commentary! The Musical).
The backstory to these silly illos
Ian Gunn, creator of these silly illos (illustrations), was an award-winning artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Cancer took him too soon. But his legacy includes numerous illustrations for zines, books and even school textbooks.
Victoria’s science fiction convention, Continuum, occasionally presents the Ian Gunn Memorial Award recognising the ‘unsung heroes’ of fandom. Recipients work in obscurity for years without recognition. This award commemorates Ian’s selfless efforts to reach out to others, encouraging others and thereby building the science fiction community.
K’rin Pender-Gunn, Ian’s widow, gave Dark Matter Zine permission to republish Ian’s artwork. Thanks, K’rin!
