Recently I was commissioned to illustrate 54 portraits of musical icons. It was one huge task! As if the workload itself wasn’t daunting enough, I had a relatively tight deadline, which to fulfill, meant I had to complete at least 1 portrait every 2 days (including working weekends, Christmas day, New years etc)
Anyway, I did it. *wipes sweat from brow and downs tall glass of beer in single gulp. Here’s a sneak peek at who I drew.
I’m super excited to see what my collaborators, Laurence King Publishing make with these, but for now, I’m heading straight back to the drawing table, because I have to design product packaging for these!
Setptember 5, 1982: Fleetwood Mac performs at the ‘US Festival’ in San Bernardino.
“Everybody was smoking a lot of pot and doing other drugs, but that night we were pretty sober, because the audience was so huge and we didn’t want to make a mistake. It was a long set and it was a great set. When we left, Robin and I flew over the festival and I swear to God we felt like the whole audience waved to us. I told the pilot to go slow because we needed to take this in. We believed in the energy from all those people.“ - Stevie Nicks
