1001 Black Men–#310

This drawing is based on one of the security officers at Farmer Joe’s Market at MacArthur and 35th. I changed his hair and removed the beard and dressed him in a gloriously green suit and tie, a la old school R&B style. I was watching some old Soul Train footage on YouTube, and I just loved the classic clips of some of those great soul groups of the 1970s. Do you remember the Spinners, the Stylistics, The Temptations, The Dramatics, or Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes? This drawing was inspired by their amazing coordinating suits.
