Drawing musicians as they perform live can be thrilling. It doesn't matter whether you're listening to blues, punk, hip-hop, classical or folk - the energy of the music usually translates into the picture. I drew this portrait of Co. Bruce Hampton (above) on Saturday evening as he played a free concert in my town. This reminded me of a variety of musical performances I've attended in recent years. I hope you enjoy this retrospective...
