Albert King

I'm a little late with Albert's birthday illustration. His date of birth is April 25, 1923.

Being overshadowed by the other King (B.B.), he didn't seem to get the recognition that he deserved by the general population. However, his style of playing has influenced countless blues, jazz, and rock musicians. Without Albert, there might have never been Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughn, to mention just a couple. 

Illustration created with watercolor, pen, brush, and ink.
