Arthur Russell portrait for The New Yorker
posted:
This is a recent portrait of the musician and composer Arthur Russell for The New Yorker. 

From the magazine—"Matt Wolf’s documentary, “Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell,” reconstructs the emergence and all too quick dissolve of the musician and composer, who died of AIDS in 1992—as well as the rise and fall of the downtown New York community that nurtured him..."  More online here.

A selection from the documentary is below.  I wasn't familiar with his work until now, but think people here might know his music so I thought I'd mention the documentary that has been put together. Some of my sketches are below.
