Chuck D.. public enemy no. 1 by tariq12 Chuck D.. public enemy no. 1 by tariq12
This was a portrait i did of and for 'Chuck D'. The front man of Public Enemy. It was done in Pastel, and was for a friend of mine who was the editor of a popular music mag who was interviewing him in 1990. Jeezus!! this is going back awhile..16 years..crap i'm old..:cries:

Well the good thing was I got to meet him backstage. got free tix for the gig and when he asked me to sign the painting.... I don't remember much after that..?? :confused:

Amazing stuff. I've met a few of my favourite Musicians and shared my artwork with them, too. Great work, Tariq.
