Johnny Shines, my favorite blues guitarist. He ran around with Robert Johnson for 3 years, stories have it. And boy, he's sure got 'em.

no fuckin way!

I love Johnny Shines, does the best version of "Ride my Poney" I've ever heard. Great musician, but yes, a funny looking man. As always, great line, great design.

...

good painting also i hope he plays better than he looks

wow dude

the art style reminds my of the one in kill bill a bit

Whoa, excellent pic.

I've never heard of this guy...heard of Robert Johnson though.
I'm going to have to look him up now! Great work on this, man.

Love it!

I'm a fan of old Mississippi Delta Blues myself, and I've thought about doing some portraits, this one is really excellent. If you haven't seen the book Robert Crumb put out of old blues and jazz portraits, you should. It's worth it for the CD included, old Skip James and Blind Willie Johnson...
