David and Johnny

I initially wanted to do a scribble portrait of David Byrne (Talking Heads). After seeing a documentary of the punk guitarist Johnny Thunders (New York Dolls, The Heartbreakers), I re-imagined the piece using portraits of these two important musician/songwriters of the late 70s early 80s New York music scene. Two distinct personalities. Two musical genres (American punk and new wave). I like the color combination as well.
