WILCO + LA Weekly

Recently a did a piece for the LA Weekly about B Real and the importance of pot to his life. Apparently, there is a legacy of musicians and pot (hence Willy Nelson and Bob Marley in the background). This really isn't surprising....I just found it very amusing how the writer felt the need to get high while interviewing B Real to get the full effect.
Anyways, the first coloring was where I had him white - but the art director wanted him to be more vibrant and the flames to fade more into the background. So the yellow version is actually the final (even though I'm partial to the first).

And the WILCO poster was submitted as a proposal - and may be used in the future by the band. Or it might not.
Either way - I enjoyed making it.
