Alright. kids. AS YOU WERE #2 is finally officially FINISHED! The art’s all laid out and it’s been sent to the printer in Canada and now all that’s left is to sit back and wait for them to let us know when we can expect a few boxes of them to arrive at the Silver Sprocket doorstep and let you guys order a copy for yourselves. Yay!

In the mean time, the Silver Sprocket crew and I thought it would be a fun idea to do a countdown of sorts to a release date by doing a profile on each contributer to the zine every day so that you and them can get better acquainted! And what better person to start with then the guy who drew this gorgeous cover for us:



Louisville, Kentucky resident Ben Sears has not only lent his drumming skills to a handfull of awesome punk/hardcore bands over the years (including Whips/Chains and No Idea alums Black God) but is ALSO a really badass artist! Just look to the cover above for proof! His most recent work includes the second issue of his own comic zine, Free Ben Sears, as well as the album art for the upcoming new Swellers album. Go ahead and follow him on Tumblr for more of his amazing art, and then come back tomorrow for the next As You Were artist profile! Yay!
