June 8th, 2011 Pen and Ink 9x12
Black Jacket Symphony
I found this photo on a friends Facebook page and did this ink drawing based on that photo. It started as a more "loose" pen and ink drawing, but the more ink I applied, the more it really looked like my friend, Allen Barlow. So, the more ink I added, the more naturally the details were added.....the bass player and a few other members became more visible.
Total time: about 8 hours spread over 3 nights

I will try and get permission to show the original photo I used to create this.........
