This was a fun piece to work on. My hope is to do a lot more illustrations similar to this in style . . . I'd like to get more than just caricature work. I enjoy the work I do, but would like to branch out more into other areas. One of my favorite magazines to illustrate for has been Rolling Stone. I love music and painting, so it's a perfect fit!
I do enough of my own interpretation in the work I do, so sometimes it's just fun to paint and create a cool looking piece of art. In a way this piece is more of an experiment. I'm trying to develop a new illustration style, it's just plain 'ol fun doing something different from time to time.
I also love the blues as well as Jack White . . . this last year, Seasick Steve was picked up by Jack White's label and that too is a perfect fit! If you haven't checked out Seasick Steve or Jack Whites label, "Third Man Records", then you're missing out!
