Portrait of Ray Manzarek
Published:
I’ve been a huge fan of The Doors for as long as I can remember, and Ray Manzarek was the biggest reason why. In my opinion, his keyboards were the heart and soul of the band’s iconic sound. Needless to say, when I got word of his passing I was pretty bummed. So I decided to pay homage to Mr. Manzarek in the same way I did when MCA passed away last summer.
 
I’ve been experimenting with some different illustration styles lately, shooting for a more geometric and simplified result. Heavy use of positive and negative with large areas of color. I fired up some Doors tunes and went to work on this one with that in mind. The final product is exactly what I had hoped for. Spot on.
