Doggone Beat

My submission for the Illustration Friday theme of this week:
"Tales & Legends"


"Doggone Beat" (acrylic on an 8 x 8 inch stretched canvas)

The pooped percussionist. He plays in his sleep. He sleeps when he plays. Tales of a legendary narcoleptic dozy drummer boy. Dozy often improvises free-form jazz jams with impromptu napping solos.

i love the style... and the title!!! Awesome work!
I like how the body (black colour) sort of becomes part of the main drum.
