Striking Chords


A couple of weeks ago at the Creative Summit, I started this illustration in my moleskine while waiting in between guest speakers. Not really sure why. The idea to draw Elvis Costello jamming with Jimi Hendrix just popped into my mind. And as it progressed, I decided that it'd be neat if their guitars were jacked into each other. Awesome music = awesome music, right? Very different music styles, but both very influential. I'll let you pull your own concept out of it. That's what art is about, eh? Or, at least one aspect of it.

Anyway, I really like how it came out. I'd say it is one of my favorites! And I have it saved at SUPER high quality, just in case.
