The Blues in red and black--

I know I said that I was going to take a break from blogging, but I lied. I worked on my comic book project last night- but got home late tonight and decided to do a few exploratory inks.
It's all relative, right? I hope so. Anyway, the thought of imaginary blues men came into to my dome, so here are the sketches it inspired.

(Philly "Fatback" LoPrete, Paris, France, 1965)

("Jazzy Jackie" Geritano, Monterey,Ca., 1963)

("Blind Willie" Henderson, New Orleans, 1956)

(Rollo King & The King's Men, Alabama, 1951)

Thank you, Whitley Potluck, I try to "capture an era" every chance I get. Thanks for the love reach-out, too.

Means a lot, Jim. Thanks.

Thanks Craig. Hope you're doing well.

And Ry, thanks for staying up all night in order to win the 'Latest Comment Posted Ever' Contest! I also appreciate the kind words. And I agree, Blind Willie rocks!

Back and forth, I imagine.
