I Wanna Go Back

I've talked a lot about attending the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. I've even pulled some assignments out of the vault and shown you the art work I was doing back then. Going there was one of the first steps I took to become a professional illustrator.

But, I've never shown you what the school looks like.

In 1985 Eddie Money used the school and the town it's located in, Dover, New Jersey, as the backdrop for his music video of the song, "I Want To Go Back." In it he not only roams the streets of Boulder, walking on one of the streets I actually lived on for a year, but strolls the halls of the school as well.

The personal facts about this song are interesting. I was an Eddie Money fan in high school and loved this album. I quoted this very song in my senior yearbook. The video for the song was shot at the place I went to college. And, in this video, somewhere in the crowd, is Mark McNabb, the man who gave me my first assistant art job and started my career in art.

Weird, huh?

Enjoy the video.

A classic, for so many reasons!

Mark McNabb is in there somewhere. And, isn't that your old apartment I saw as they drove down Blackwell Sreet, Rob?
