This is excellent on many levels. Your draftsmanship is superb, and your design sense is a match. I love how you've framed him in an 'E" - very effective. Another truly superb illustration. By the way, I checked out your website - you have an amazing portfolio - so much great sguff!

wanted to say THANKS for your encouraging comment on my latest post. if i were to try my hand at all different kinds of media, you would be one to inspire me to do so - it's fun to come here to see what you've done (and done well), and to marvel at how different it is from what you did the time before.

this portrait of ellington is awesome - especially impressed with the position of the hands / fingers on the piano keys.
