The White Stripes

Did a little poster for the white stripes. I tried as best as I could to stick to red black and white, but I couldn't help give it some color.

Blues roots

Did a quick pastel of Alan Ginsberg. Thought about using my pen linework in my pastel drawings by blowing up small ink drawings, and preserving the line work with pastels.
