600.00 850.00

Pen & ink and watercolor on rag-bond paper.  6" x 6 1/4" image framed in an 8" x 8" white wooden frame.  Recreation of the cover of Frank Sinatra's 1955 landmark album, "In The Wee Small Hours."  The final cover art incorporated additional hand-written lettering and was digitally assembled for publication by the artist.  The art was used as part of a larger piece of illustrated reportage for The New Yorker in 2015 entitled "Always Lonely: A Visual Celebration of Sinatra," which commemorated the iconic singer's centennial birthday and his legacy as the innovator of the long-playing concept album.    Signed and dated in pencil by the artist on the verso side of the drawing.
