Wu Tang

I was pretty excited to get an email from Dallas Observer art director Alexander Flores asking me to do some quick drawings of the members of Wu-Tang Clan. The last time that Wu-Tang Clan performed in Dallas, not all of the members showed up, which apparently was and is a consistent problem throughout their tours as members come and go. So with Wu Tang set to perform in Dallas in the next couple of weeks, the Observer wanted some portraits to make a stakes graphic, showing the odds of which members are going to show (even including the late ODB)
Who needs a lightbox?
I had a blast working with Alex, who's incredibly clear in his direction and just a good guy. Plus now, I know who is who in Wu-Tang, which seemed impossible before.
