The Transformation of Saint Lou, Part I

Pencil drawing of rock and roll singer Lou Reed.

I saw a great photo of Lou Reed shortly after he passed away in 2013 and it screamed at me to draw it. It was very stark and stoic in its composition. I was unsure if I could do justice to it, but I put on the “Rock And Roll Animal”album, picked up a pencil and started. This is what I finished with. It is very rough, much like his music and voice.
