Some 18-19 years ago, I worked as an illustrator for a classical music label and drew scores of drawings of composers. Bach, Brahms, Beethoven, Mahler, Stravinsky, Poulenc, Verdi, Rossini, and gobs more. I don’t think I’m that grand at portraiture and that even less of my skill at it back then; but hey, I landed the gig and got paid to get better. So I’ve gone back into my collection and have reworked some of them

Sibelius was one of the earliest assignments I had. The second and third from the left were from those days. The others were recently added.

   

Drawn on ledgerbook paper, composition sheets with ballpoint, fountain pen and Pitt Artist Pens.

Dropped into Madison to visit Madison College, The University of Wisconsin, and Edgewood College, and received the offer from Barry Carlsen to do a print. Worked on a two color lithograph over the weekend. Above is the proof. It’ll be editioned later this fall. Worked from a sketch (below) done about 8 years prior.
