Some Blues

Here's some portraits I did a while ago in my sketchbook of a few blues musicians. Thought it was about time I got to uploading them. I'll probably do more eventually, try to get some lesser known blues musicians in there next time.

I listen to the blues constantly, and read about blues musicians almost as much. There is something just so mysterious about the whole aspect of the music and persona that you don't find anywhere else. If you aren't captivated by the power of Son Houses voice, the prowess of Johnsons guitar picking, or the haunting falsetto of Skip James (see below), then I just don't know.
