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.
