You might know Courtney Taylor-Taylor from his position as the front man for popular band the Dandy Warhols. However, when not playing guitar or singing for the alternative rock band, he acts as the creator and writer of graphic novel One Model Nation. A music man by trade, Taylor designed the graphic novel to be accompanied by an album that would be released in conjunction with the comic, along with illustrative music videos. One Model Nation was conceived in 2000 by Taylor-Taylor and Donovan Leitch, whose original vision for the series revolved around a fictional German band operating in the year 1977. The pair assert that the music for the series was completed within three days, yet the final development of the storyline took over 10 years to perfect, with the finished result having only recently become available in wide release.
