Legendary Senior Rockers

In my recent Materials and Techniques classes I've covered the mixed-media process that several illustrators use, primarily C.F. Payne and Mark English. It's a great technique for caricature portraits, so for the past two quarters I've done demos of some familiar rock and roll folks who have lots of character in their faces and in their body language. Here are the first two in what I hope will be several pieces celebrating the Senior Citizens of Rock and Roll.
