Coltrane, 2014. Ink, collage and digital color.
My first QDC post of the year is a portrait of John Coltrane for our group’s contribution to Jazz and Draw. If you aren’t familiar with Coltrane’s legendary work as a saxophonist and band leader, Coltrane Plays the Blues is a great place to start.
Coltrane was a great musical figure to explore in this piece. I’m looking forward to seeing the other portraits from the rest of the QDC.
Sorcery (repeating pattern), Ink and digital color.
I’ve been inspired by a lot of magical and occult imagery lately, so that’s the direction I took for my pattern. I told my mom this would be a good design for bed sheets and she said “that would give me nightmares.” Ha!
Getting magical up in here for my latest QDC piece.
