It Gets Worse is a ska band originally from Wyoming, then from Seattle. I met them and they were cool and asked me to draw something they could use for merchandise. They wanted a character of some kind and something that represented ska music.

I drew the head of this guy first, and knew it was a good direction. He was beat up but wearing a cracked helmet, the absurdity makes me laugh. Then I really wanted to raise the absurdity level, and made him in a scene of bad event after bad luck. The checker board bandana in his back pocket hints to the checker of the ska music.
