The Studio Museum in Harlem

SEPTEMBER 17, 2008
coloring page
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.
