|We would like to pay tribute to our partner, our brother and part of the heart and soul of The Beach Chronicles, the first voice of our detective Dirk Jenson-Julian Valdez who passed November 1st, 2018. (third from left) From the time we started the project, he gave his unwavering support, from helping to spread word, to breathing life into the main character Dirk Jenson, Julian showed the spirit that sparked a light with so many he touched. He remains the voice of our comic one of which you can hear the audio version that debuted on the David Lynch Transcendental Music Radio here: https://soundcloud.com/ kevin-sharpley/ the-beach-chronicles-radio- noir-episode-one|
We’ve had many in the ranks that have been a part of the project, Daryl Hannah, Michael Chiklis, Tommy Flanagan, Jimmy Jean Louis, JoMarie Payton-Two Dirk Jenson’s Jesse Johnson and Emmy Award winning actor Jordi Vilasuso, but Julian was the first star amongst the others. He will be missed, but will live on forever in the lives he touched and as our first voice.
RIP brother Julian, you were one of a kind.
