Rockin' Daddy (Howlin' Wolf)
pencil, ink, and acrylic on found wood.
Howlin' Wolf...what can be said that hasn't a million times over. The dude was a bad-ass, a true originator, imitated by many! A solid line can be traced from Chester to Captain Beefheart, to Tom Waits, to Clutch, to Man Man...and honestly countless others in between all those favorites of mine. Man o man, his vocal styling is downright deadly! I love it. One of his albums was one of the first I ever bought in Columbus, when I first moved here in '98.
