How the print came to be-I was amazed when Smokey contacted me to do a portrait to commemorate his 50 years in the music business, and a little nostalgic at the thought of his impact on me as a kid. I made two illustrations: one of Smokey at the dawn of the ‘70s, showing off his Black Power fashion sense of the moment; and another of him in the early ‘90s.
After the prints came back from the printer, Smokey came into the studio to hang out and sign them. He’s a really nice, upbeat guy who has a real lust for life – maybe that’s why he looks like he hasn’t aged in 30 years. Believe it or not, Smokey signed every single print with his very beautiful and painstaking signature. It’s worth picking up a print for that alone.
This is a 3 Color Silk Screen Print.
The poster is Mint Condition and Stored Flat.
