"Black Comedy" by Amy Crehore Copyright 2005
Although most of my Little Pierrots were drawn without looking at any reference material at all, a couple of them were inspired by the poses of beautiful silent movie star, Louise Brooks.
If you want to find pre-war black blues, jazz, rags and jugband music, then Document Records can't be beat.
And, if you like the amazing graphics on the old race records ads, Blues Images publishes a calendar every single year featuring new images and a free CD of hokum music - all for a measly $19.95. The 2007 calendar is available now.
"Little Hokum Rag" was recently written up by Johnny on Drawn! (thanks, Johnny) which reminded me that I have been meaning to add some more drawings to my website for a long time now. So, I just went and uploaded 10 more Little Pierrot Series Drawings in the drawing section. Have a look! These are newer, more complex ones. I will add more in the weeks to come, including my Monkey Love Series drawings. And, yes, I used a coffee can lid to draw those circles!
