Bringing the Heat

New piece for Oxford American's music ish. A portrait of The Black Haze Express. This was a perfect assignment for me. Illustrating a super rare almost non-existent funk group. They released only two 45's in low pressing numbers. They are most famous for Won't Nobody Listen which was included on the "What it is?! Comp from a couple years ago.

Black Haze Express is really one man Sam Dees. Who has written and recorded tons of hits, mostly for other people. Like One in a Million by Larry Graham.  Needless to say there are like, two lo-res photos in existence of these guys and that's where we illustrators come in.
