Face of the Blues
AUGUST 14, 2008
I've always loved to paint faces. I did this illustration of James Moody for Fred Fehlau and the 2008, Playboy Jazz Festival. What follows are portraits I've done of musicians going back to 1977; Buddy Guy, 2007 Playboy Jazz Festival / Chuck Mangione, 2006 Playboy Jazz Festival / Art Blakey, 1980 Playboy Jazz Festival, and best in show, Editorial, 1980 Los Angeles Society of Illustrators / B.B. King, student piece, 1977. The Elvis, Hank, B.B., Bobby Blue Bland piece was done for the Op-Ed Page, 2007.
