A Memorial Print by Michael Troy
UPDATE: Contest Extension!!!
Press Release from Prism Comics:
Los Angeles, CA- Michael Troy and Lethally Blonde Productions (Going Gaga!, The Blonde Squad) are offering an exclusive, extremely limited, signed, and numbered Amy Winehouse memorial print.
"Tragic news of the talented singer/songwriter's passing came when I was at San Diego Comic-Con pimping my Lady Gaga tribute book, Going Gaga! Having always been a fan of Winehouse, I was inspired to do this image to honor her. What can I yell you? I have a soft spot in my heart for tortured genius. I wanted to make her look pretty and threw in a tip of the hat to one of my favorite artists, Patrick Nagel. After posting it on Facebook and having people react very strongly to it, I decided to make it available as an exclusive print. And that is that," said Troy of the inspiration behind the Winehouse image.
"Amy Winehouse: Fade to Black" is a limited edition 11" x 16" glossy print, signed, numbered, and limited to only 125 copies. It is available for purchase for $7.00, available exclusively through the Prism Comics' online store.

The winning response:
So many to choose from, of course. But a favorite has been "You Know I'm No Good." Her rich, soulful voice just bursts through every lyric. I still get chills when I hear it. So sad she is gone, but her legacy will last a very VERY long time. RIP Amy.

Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
