The Studio Museum in Harlem
SEPTEMBER 17, 2008
The Studio Museum in Harlem called the other day. They carry the book Jazz ABZ in their bookstore and wanted to do a feature in their quarterly magazine. There's an artist interview in each issue and it includes a coloring page for kids. I sent them this line drawing of Duke Ellington and a few cats from his band that made Harlem their home. I have this directory of musicians from 1955 that lists everyone’s home address and I included them in the drawing. The whole thing is a shameless imitation of the great David Stone Martin, and I’m sure the image will be improved by kids with crayons.
