DIO!
A “Persons Of Interest” drawing. You can get your own here, as my schedule allows, and see all the ones thus far here. Short version is I’ll draw any famous/widely recognizable figure, fictional or historical or just popular, just once.

MILES BY BICYCLE now on INPRNT. I was very proud of this drawing, originally for a friend undergoing surgery as a get-well present. And then I colored it up and monetized it into a print, and now I’m doing it again via Inprnt—so a snazzier, giclee-ier print. Get in there, jazz lovers and bike lovers; get in there and battle for supremacy.

JIM GUTHRIE's new album Takes Time premieres today, and it's fantastic. You can order it (and/or stream it free) on Bandcamp (which presumably nets him more moola) and iTunes. I was able to get an advance copy and have worn electronic grooves in the mp3’s for the last few months: it’s really something. I discovered Jim’s music through the incredible Sworcery soundtrack, and then immediately started working back through his catalog. Now More Than Ever is an especial favorite, and his last solo studio album, nearly ten years old. I can’t recommend Jim as a person or as an artist highly enough—his music has become a really really important part of my life, and I’m the better for it. 
The above comic is from a future series of diary comics, which I thought I’d have done by now, but no. But I couldn’t help sticking it out there to celebrate Jim’s new album, and hopefully drum up some new fans for him. Pass it along!

I’ve spent all day inking 18 different drawings for a big history map illustration for a magazine, including this James Brown, who recorded Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag in Charlotte (where I live) in 1967.

MAYNARD FERGUSON, TRUMPETEST. One of the twenty dollar sketches I do; you can buy one here, and see all the ones to date here. Subject suggestion: “Maynard Ferguson”. This one was tough because I wasn’t familiar with Ferguson, a Canadian trumpeter and band leader. And then after familiarizing myself, it wasn’t my cup of tea really—to be honest, I just don’t like trumpet very much, especially in the wild upper registers that big band trumpeters like to squeak into. I struggled with what to draw until I decided to just get rid of the part I didn’t like. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how ideas work.
