My inspiration comes often from musical sources. The blues speaks loudest to my creative soul, and these fine gentlemen inspired me so much I simply had to immortalize them on paper.
Meet Albert Collins... Jimmie Vaughan... Albert King and his Flying V... and the super-cool John Lee Hooker.
(John Lee saw this portrait, titled "Bluesman", and his response tickled me good. He said 'I am the bluesman, haw haw haw haw...' then he chuckled!)
