Jack White. Just for fun. In high school I must have drawn every rock star of the 60's and 70's. I've been doing a lot of musicians between jobs lately. Uh, drawing them I mean. I'd like to do more music related work, so I'll be posting more soon.
Awesome, Dale! And the red background is the obvious choice - perfect.
Richard DownsMarch 23, 2010
Nice piece, Dale. I like the cut under the left collar, looks like you pushed a big wet brush up there.
Leo EspinosaMarch 23, 2010
this might be my favorite illo of yours followed closely by Kanye West
Stephen KroningerMarch 23, 2010
I can almost hear the man through your brushstrokes.
Laura LevineMarch 23, 2010
Really nice, Dale!
Mark FisherMarch 23, 2010
I agree, one of your best that I have seen.
Adam McCauleyMarch 23, 2010
Dead on, nice! I like having Meg on his shirt too, really nice visual contrast.
Christoph HitzMarch 23, 2010
I'm going to beat Randy Enos to it: "Great hair" and yes one of your best!
Brian StaufferMarch 23, 2010
The detail in the hair is insane. What a masochist you are!
Steve WacksmanMarch 23, 2010
Perfect. And the light! Love the radiance of that red.
"workrock" - how appropriate!
Ellen WeinsteinMarch 23, 2010
Nice image, Dale!! Love the hair especially!
harryMarch 23, 2010
freaking great man!
Tim OBrienMarch 23, 2010
I smell a RED-off in your future.
Good image Dale and yes, red is just a great color as a background.
Jack is Cassius' favorite musician right now.
Carl WiensMarch 24, 2010
I can see you had fun with this Dale! Nicely done.
Chris BuzelliMarch 24, 2010
Great illo Dale! Jack is burned into my retina.
David FlahertyMarch 24, 2010
Late to the party Dale, this is most excellent!
Dale StephanosMarch 24, 2010
Thanks everybody. I'll let the subject matter absorb all the praise so I don't float away. But I have to admit that after several weeks of rain this kind of sunshine warms me up.
Joe CiardielloMarch 24, 2010
Really nice one Dale.
Drew FriedmanMarch 24, 2010
Nice one, Dale.
John DykesMarch 24, 2010
Super work, Dale. Love your musician series idea... Its a cool thing we illustrators have - create stuff that interests us on a real personal level - and this effort usually turns into assignment work. Better man the phones for those calls!
Victor JuhaszMarch 24, 2010
Excellent painting. Great portrait. And red.
The hair is a gas too.
MablyMarch 25, 2010
Super cool! Putting Meg on the t-shirt is a masterstroke.
Rob DunlaveyMarch 25, 2010
I like the straight-on not-too-forced caricature quality in this one. It's still your style but it let's a certain malevolence seep out rather than satire. Which is appropriate is it not?
Dale StephanosMarch 25, 2010
Thanks again everyone. Anyone see "It might get loud"? It's a fun documentary focusing on White, Jimmy Page and the Edge(Do I capitalize "The?). Fans of electric guitar will enjoy it. There's one great scene where Jack White makes an electric guitar out of a board, a string, a couple of nails and a pickup.
YukoMarch 25, 2010
A really really nice one!!!!!!
Tim J LuddyMarch 25, 2010
Dale, this is perfect. There's such a sense of engagement with him, including that slightly alien intensity that he exudes. Meg is actually pretty intense, too, but she balances out nicely with him. And yes, the hair, and the red. It was a joy to come across it.
Hanoch PivenMarch 26, 2010
did anybody mention the GREAT hair?
Beautiful hair yes!
Jody HewgillMarch 27, 2010
Jack's expression is great !
nice little open mouth pout.
