1. Here’s a drawing of Lou Reed I started the evening he died and just wrapped up this evening. Since his death, people far more eloquent and far more knowledgeable about music than I have written about Lou Reed’s significance and importance. I’ll just say this: I discovered the Velvet Underground when I was in high school in the 1980s and theirs is some of the only music I’ve never stopped listening to since then. Lou Reed’s made a lot of records over the years. Some were great. Some were… not so great. But he was never complacent and and never content to make a record he’d already made.

    The image is based on my two favorite post-Velvets Reed solo records: the pose and clothing are from aTransformer-era  photo session and the color scheme is based on the blue hue featured on the record The Blue Mask. It was sketched in pencil, then inked and colored in Manga Studio.
