John Sandford, AD for Cicada magazine, was very generous in selecting me as the spot artist for the March/April issue. Its a pretty sweet deal; you get to do a series of spot drawings and one full page piece, all under one theme. Dear friends MR, Kali, and Sam have all been featured in past issues, and I certainly didn't want to disappoint!
I've been listening to old Delta Blues recordings lately, plus I paid a recent visit to Kingston Mines (one of the best blues clubs in Chicago), so the time was ripe to put some imagery to the music.

I will update this post with a 5th portrait of Memphis Minnie, one of the few true blues women.
I'll also post the full page with some type. Enjoy!
