Stevie Ray Vaughn was a great blues guitarist and musician. Not only was he able to hit the sweet notes, but he was a master at showmanship. Playing behind his back, an acrobatic feat, was one of many ways he would entertain his audience.
With this illustration I had two objectives. The first was to make it not look like a typical SRV drawing. There are so many drawings of him that look too similar. Secondly, I wanted to effectively utilize white space to add contrast and interest. This is something that I am going to work on with future projects. I think I was pretty successful with achieving both objectives.
