New Orleans Music, illustration by John Dyess

This illustration was created in the late 1970’s while I was working at Maritz Motivation Company. I found this illustration in a storeroom while searching for paintings to place in our church gallery for a current show called”It’s Time to Sing a New Song” I didn’t use this illustration for the show but thought I would post it as an historical “old” illustration I painted. The technique was “Spray Mark” aerosol spray on tracing paper over graphite pencil. I used bleach to wipe away some of the background color and also used Dr.Martin’s dye for highlight colors. This was an idea layout and not finished art.
