A tribute to the city that gave me everything. NOLA I love you, I live you and I wear you. This illustration started out as a sketch so many years ago I can't even remember exactly how many. It's based on a combination of influences from the amazing animation style seen in many of the Looney Tunes featuring Pepe Lepeu as well as old mid-century styled prints I've come acorss over the years. The piece is a combination of Louis Armstrong's trumpet and classic New Orleans street signage and filagree from the famous jazz song Basin Street Blues.
This will be released as a limited edition print in 2010 along with additional prints in a series based on my beloved city of New Orleans.
