Kory Kennedy of Entertainment Weekly organized a cirque d’illustration for its issue ranking works in pop culture. My assignment: top pop artists, specifically, Elvis in ’53, Madonna in ’83, Springsteen in ’75, Dylan in ’65, Jackson in ’86, and Prince in ’84, Jay z in ’01.
Here’s my first sketch, then the final sketch, then the finish. Watercolor, pencil, Photoshop. Great fun. Thanks to Kory and the EW gang.
