Woody Guthrie

Reorganizing and cleaning the studio and found this illustration from Bunny Carter's class in the summer program at Hartford. This is Woody Guthrie as a child and his mother who used to sing to him. According to Guthrie she was a big influence on him. It's traditonal pen and ink which I brought into PS for effects. It ended up having a kind of wood cut quality which I liked because of the subject. Getting ready for Pasadena trip in November. I've been experimenting with pen and ink for a magazine cover assignment. I've chosen the decade of the 50's and using a Ben Shahn/David Stone Martin-esque style...more to come.
