East Village Music Boy

This brand new illustration began as a little sketchbook drawing of a guy we saw recently. He was dragging his empty red wagon around the East Village, carrying a big tote bag full of various drum sticks. Was he on his way to pick up his drums? Or maybe take the entire band for a spin? As the illustration grew, so did the band. (Wouldn't you love to hear the music that this combination of instruments might make?) And the guy in the sketch somehow transformed into somewhat of a self portrait. Except my cool faux-coon cap has been AWOL since the 80's.
