illustration friday

This week’s theme is “Jazz.” Again, a stumper for me. The first thoughts that came to mind were “all that jazz,” which led to the flapper era, but in the end I arrived at the singing face idea….I’ve always loved the intense expression in people’s faces when they sing. My dad loves jazz and has passed the appreciation on to me. On occasion,we like to head out to see live jazz. Such an experience, the smoky club, the smooth piano, the singer’s expression!

I did this sketch on the quick. I am not in love with it, but I’ve been short on time and energy to spend a lot on this week’s illo. Eh.

I thought this older illo I’d created for Subter might kind of fit in for the flapper-era jazz thoughts as well:

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
