ILLUSTRATIONS, Charcoal and graphite
In 2012, my friend Alice asked me to do portraits for her passion project. In her words, “’Hear it is‘ is a series of interviews with [veterans of the OPM scene], transcribed… as oral histories. We talk about what they do and what they’ve done, and what has changed since they started making music…”
The most interesting part was trying to capture the introspective spirit of the interviews, while still depicting the musicians in a way that made them recognizable to fans more familiar with their onstage personas.
Head over to the Peripheral Universe to continue the conversation about music, and to see the work that Alice’s other featured artists created as well.
