Strange Fruit...


The Great Nina Simone... she had loads of attitude, but without the lame posing today's artists seem to think is so super-cool.
Edit:
I showed my Number One Critic –my wife- the Nina S caricature she thought I made her unattractive, so I had another go. Here’s a slightly younger Nina than the first…and hopefully this one is less un-flattering too…

Thank you Dominic. Yeah Simone is on eof the greats, for sure! I have her playing all the time, her stage shows were fantastic too.

Hi Maritz,
I just discover your blog, but not your work : I've already seen your Bronson, and he's great, and WaoH, great line work for Nina Simone.
(Aaaaah, she is one of my projects for musicians)

Your line work is incredibly elegant. Great stuff!

Thanks Jean-Marc, Joe. Glad you popped by the old blob here!
