Wes playing guitar at the Monday Night Blues Jam at The Grisly Pear.

Wes at The Grisly Pear

I love the way the Diamine Denim ink bled into the purple watercolor wash.  A bit of color mixing together in one simple shape creates an illusion of space behind the figure.  Tricked by that illusion, my brain attributes weight and form to the few lines I used to portray Wes as he played blues guitar.
