Art Description

Drawing: Ink and Digital on Other.

Charlie Parker entered the jazz scene under the incredible Buster Smith in Kansas City. It didn't take long for people to notice the talent and drive he possessed. He fought to forge his own path and carve out a space for modern jazz as we know it now.

He battled his demons his entire life, but, through that torment came some of the most compelling music ever created. A genius like no other, this is a small tribute to The Bird.

The image is hand drawn in pen, scanned and colored digitally. The surrounding elements are created digitally as well. His signature at the top, is actually the signature of Charlie Parker...found online and colored digitally as well.

Hang this where you sit and drink your whiskey at the end of a long day,. Listen to Charlie's sax, and be grateful for a man that was willing to give everything up in life for one singular passion.

Then go read his autobiography!
