The image of B. B. King was completed using photo references I took. I attended several concerts he had in the DC area. This particular pose was from one of his shows at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA.
The illustrations of the finch, swallow, and robin were drawn from reference photos I took of birds in my back yard and areas near. The black and white illustrations (yellow background) were for a children's book, Friends of a Feather (out of print).
