Iggy Pop commission by seangordonmurphy Iggy Pop commission by seangordonmurphy
The REAL king of rock, Iggy!

Now that I don't do commissions of licensed characters, I find I get a lot less work. But when I do, it's usually something cool like this.

*Technically, Iggy owns the rights to his own image, and commissions like this might not be covered under Fair Use laws, but oh well. If record companies start cracking down on artist's alley like Marvel/DC does, then I'll stop.

You're right,this is really COOL. You know what,it reminds me a lot of Eisner's art,maybe that's that's why I like it so bad.

Iggy would probably smoke the original if he had the rights :D

That's awesome! I can't believe you're getting significantly less work for doing commissions like this rather than drawing someone yet another Batman.

I was in the pit at a Stooges concert. Once he came on the crowd kind of squished together and followed him to whichever side of the stage and no one really had control of their bodies or arms. Some mom was with her daughter when the daughter was knocked bloody and unconscious. It was like a riot ripe with real horror show.

Anyone who has been in an Iggy Pop pit has the rights to this image. I don't care. This is cool as shit.

This picture rocks! The composition is very dynamic, with the words on the right giving the picture a depth. And I love how you drew Iggy!

So...have you ever considered drawing PJ Harvey? ;)

Sweet perspective lettering! And I like variety of inking here, from the washy stuff and bold white areas of the jeans to the radiating lines on his torso, the wisps of hair, the white spatter in the background, and of course those fingerprints. : D

I agree with one of the earlier posts, that you should draw a David Bowie piece. Have you ever seen the movie, Velvet Goldmine?

P.S.
It was nice to meet you in San Diego. I bought the "Cemetery" piece from you.

Thanks for the purchase! We're thinking about turning that into a print or small post card later on. So hang on to it.

If it's not taken from an already published work of art. Caricatures are legal of celebrity, as he is a public figure.
