    Psychedelic Soul

    Looking through the poems, I knew that Syracuse has a big blues and jazz scene downtown. For me it was about creating art that echoed music. With this piece this was a reflection and reaction upon the jazz I listen to. I sat down, and put on my favorite Dinah Washington record, and let the drawing flow.

    I let this piece come together just as many jazz compositions do, through improv. It was planned, but not too planned. As I went along, I figured it out.
