I still love making pictures that can be hung on a wall, in a frame. Something that becomes part of a home.
The digital world has made it so much more exciting to have that still moment with a piece of unscrollable, physical art. It stills connects with our cave man psyche. I find it much more restful to make too.
I drew this to capture the modern state of rock music. A burnt out shadow of its glory years, still twitching under of the streamable avalanche of everything playing at once (for free).

Then I scanned it, and did this... ah Photoshop.
When I went to art college in the late '80s, airbrush was the uncoolest thing- its '70s prime long gone.
I recently read Overspray, "Riding high with Kings of California Airbrush". Turns out those '70s kings were all full of cocaine to stay up to meet the deadlines, some serious casualties. The handmade takes its toll.
