Man, that is insanely cool. Which have you been doing longer, painting or drumming? And did you do that Pearl logo too?

Just a suggestion, but why not paint some heads of whatever and sell em on ebay. Could be a good way to make some extra coin.

Yeah, I'd bump that price up to $100. That's still a good price for quality, handmade art like that.

Ebay auction. See what the market will bear and that's what they're worth.

Here is a suggestion to piggyback on Pavlos suggestion:

Do a similar style image from an iconic portrait of Bonham and go ebay. You'll get an even bigger clamour than for Hendrix.

That is awesome, absolutely fantastic and original.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience is a big influence on me musically and that right there is probably the coolest most unique thing i've seen.

Job well done man, i'm an artist myself and if that's what color you did a great job.

EDIT:I noticed you put a price on doing this for people and i was wondering if you could paint one for me in the near future(gotta wait till after spring break) of Mitch Mitchell or John Bonham and just from like the shoulders up kinda like yours.


Mitch Mitchell
or


John Bonham.

thanks man
