Miles Davis, Sketched

Here is a wonderful sketch I found of Miles Davis at Ruth Mowry’s artistically excellent Synch-ro-ni-zing blog. Her sketch design of the jazz legend is clean and decisive; it’s a strong visual.

  1. Jeffrey, thank you for featuring this sketch of Miles on your site. I feel quite honored that you found it and liked it enough to include it here.

    Lorenzo, who I see has stopped in for a visit, has helped educate me about jazz, including Miles, at his wonderful Alchemist’s Pillow. I look forward to building on that foundation here at your place.

    I’ll let you know if I get that sketch done of Miles’ eyes that I want to do.

  2. It’s my pleasure Ruth. You are very talented, and I’m happy to say I am a new follower of your blog!

    the miles davis sketch is lovely, and i really sparked to it the moment i spotted it in the photo gallery. i’m so happy to be able to present it to my readers here and on the facebook page.

    I definitely look forward to seeing more artistic endeavors down the road — especially anything having to do with jazz and miles davis!

    🙂

  3. 🙂 I am Ruth sister-in-law from the Netherlands, I had seen the drawing before and indeed it is done very well, it is so hard to give character in just a few lines, Ruth did so well.
    My dad was a jazz trumpet player too, as a child I grew up with the music of Miles Davies, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington (and more of those famous men)
    Over the weekend I will check out your website more.
    Are you familiar with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amsterdam_Concert?
