IF legendary


legendary shock rocker, Alice Cooper is still going strong, and still writing lyrics that make cringe... gotta love the crazy old guy.

Hi Joseph! I see your collection has grown. And each of them has the orange glow. I love it especially this.:)

This is cool, as always. I wanted to tell you that I
saw your sketchbook at the St. Louis stop of The Sketchbook Project. It was really cool seeing the actual piece after following the making of it on your blog. (I actually found my book, too - I was very surprised because there were just stacks of them everywhere!) A photo of yours is featured here: http://samgallery1.blogspot.com/

I heard him on the radio the other night... he was talking about how he would never get a piercing, seems so incongruous for a man who is synonymous with shock!

thanks all!

Redheaded Stepchild, thanks for the link

deb, no piercings or tattoos i believe, that is shocking. then again his stage persona is totally different then the real man.

Hey, I didn't know Alice Cooper was still around. I mean, it's more than 35 years ago that I played airguitar before the mirror listening to 'elected' on my cassette deck.

Great illustration. Coincidentally, I met Alice Cooper yesterday at a Horror convention. You are right, he's still going strong!

Gillian said...

Yes, this does bring back memories. An inspired portait!

I haven't listened to much Alice Cooper (yeah, I live under a rock), but this sketch is really great. I love the color choices for his skin; they integrated really well within the moleskine, and flesh is definitely a harder thing to portray in color.

Thanks for stopping by my illo! :)

Burt said...

Excuse me, *have* to love the crazy old guy. Yikes.
