The punk subculture came about around 10 years after the hippy subculture and, by the 1980s, a lot of punks were actually the children of hippies. So, it makes sense that there would be animosity between the two, as punk rockers tried to make their own way, necessarily rebelling against the older generation. Of course, the two youth cultures shared a lot of values and behavior, and had music as their cohesive cores. By the time the US West Coast hardcore scene came into being, the politics of punk rock and hippies overlapped quite a bit.
I am interpreting the lack of response to my last cartoon post as a silent plea for more! So here you go, a cartoon about conformity that I redrew from a Mike Whybark cartoon years ago. It first appeared in Rock for No Reason bandzine.

I will be on a little journey to Vidcon for the next week, so I leave you with this cartoon I drew. Interesting fact: I drew this back when shading was done with rub-off acetate – I would choose a darkness level, line up the translucent plastic sheet of shading & cut it with a razor to fit the drawing. So enjoy your retro-Daisybrain cartoon art!
