My love of the blues and early rock music has inspired me to create tribute illustrations.

It was suggested that I consider putting them together in a book.

Some of the other musicians I'm working on include:
Mississippi Fred McDowell

Howling Wolf


Blind Lemon Jefferson

Blind Willie McTell

Blind Boy Fuller

Matt Guitar Murphy

Ma Reiney
Ledbelly
Skip James

Scrapper Blackwell & Leroy Carr
William Brown
Memphis Minnie

Sleepy John Estes
James Cotton

Little Walter

Here are a couple of the pieces I have done. I'm quite pleased with how they have been turning out.
My plan is to have enough completed to create a 30-50 page book.
I'm thinking of doing an Indiegogo campaign to help raise the money for printing, plus support a related charity.

Hope you guys like them.

One of the best ones, although there's many. He's still alive and was a guest member of the band fairly recently on Steven Colbert. (I hope you don't mind my putting a vid here?)

Anyway, with or without him, I think the book is a fantastic idea! I would buy them as gifts for my blues loving friends, and one for me.

Since you're not here to shooo me away, one more vid. This one of James Booker, who is absolute awesomeness.
Be sure and listen to his "CIA" song too.

Cool. I'll check when I get home. If you're down and depending how much you charge I can think of a couple dozen originals I would like actually.

I'll talk to you

Oh by all means, he's a given.

I started with Son House since history tells us that he was one of Robert's teachers

Scrapper Blackwell and Leon Carr.
These two were a huge influence on the tone of Chicago Blues
