Gil Scott Heron (Work in Progress)
I've always been a huge admirer of the man. His lyricism and music has had the power to lift and inspire my whole day at times. The news of his passing last month was unfortunately not surprising, considering his gaunt appearance and fairly public troubles with drugs, etc, but still nonetheless devastating to hear.
So.... here is my tribute piece to the late great Gil Scott Heron. Still a work in progress as you can see, but to be honest I kinda like it in this sketchy form. I can't resist adding more to it though, so keep an eye out for the finished result. Hopefully it'll do the great man justice.
