2 years ago, when I was just a freshman at SVA, Karl Sanders from the death metal band Nile held a listening party in Lower Manhatten for his latest solo album 'Saurian Exorcisms,' and I had the outmost pleasure of getting to meet and hang with Karl. He was the sweetest, nicest dude ever, and his new album was VERY good. So after the party I had to draw him, he's such a character! A year later Nile would return for a headlining tour with Immolation, and I caught Karl at the end of the show at the Blender. I showed him the drawing and he loved it! He was also nice enough to sign it for me in silver Sharpie. Im truly blessed.
