Portrait of Louie Armstrong

Artist's Description

Charcoal, graphite and ink on paper.
My inspiration for this piece is Jazz, pure soulful and uninhibited jazz. From his trumpet playing to his rich vocals, Louie’s music has always been a great inspiration to me. In this piece I tried to capture the depth of his character and defined talent. I created countless layers of meticulous details conveying everything from the veins in his hands to his handkerchief and the gleam in his eyes that says, he loves what he does.
