Justin knows piano. He knows guitar. And the big Justin knows accordion!! That's what I call being a big time triple threat!
Anyway, sometime back Justin introduced himself to me by visiting my blog. Smoozing me just a bit, Justin was very complementary of my art. Then he inquired about the possibility of me doing a caricature of him. We talked turkey, just a bit, and came to terms.
For his illustration Justin wanted me to be sure and include a grand pianie, the gee-tar, and his accordion (apparently named Erica - and why not?).
AND!!! Justin wanted me to illustrate him wearing a rainbow colored bow tie. Reportedly, his father is accustom to sporting bow ties. (No report on whether or not he owns a rainbow colored one.) So, I did just that.
(Apologies - I've just learned that Justin's dad does NOT wear bow ties. I'm sorry to have shared false information. I refer you to the comment made by Justin's mom, Deborah, in the comment section of this blog for the full and correct information on that front. But I promise you no ties of any kind were hurt in the creation of this post. Thank you.)
Putting his name at the top of the doodle was my idea. It only seemed right for the illustration.
Thanks Justin for trusting me to bring to your vision to reality. I'm proud to have it as the header of your blog. Thank you too for all your kind comments on mine. What else can I say, but you're cool!!!
The rest of you go check the big Ad-Just-er out! He's from Canada no less!
