IF: Music II or Entangled

This is the new picture I wanted to do for IF. This is what came to mind for the prompt of "music." I could work for "Entangle" or "Envelope" too. I love to be entangled in the feeling and energy of live music.

"One good thing about music,
when it hits you,
you feel no pain."

IF: Music

This is a piece I did in 2007 when I was posterizing some of my favorite musicians. This Miles Davis was plotted (cut) in vinyl and applied in 5 individually applied layers. The substrate (or backing) is wood panel sandwiched between two aluminum sheets. It is capped (framed) by black plastic siding. It weighs close to 10 pounds and is 10 x 24.

I appreciate the help of AJ Hancock of Apex Signs for his help in making this piece happen.


I made a whole series of musicians in this vain but It cost to much to produce them versus how much people would pay to buy them. I always wonder how starving artist afford art supplies.
