For years I’d attempted to draw a portrait of Mark Stuart from Audio Adrenaline but had always failed miserably. In January of 2000, I decided to try again. I was hoping to see them live the following month and give him a personal copy. After my first attempt failed, I tried this particular picture from the CD jacket of their 1999 album “Underdog.” Thankfully, it turned out. I was able to give him a copy of the drawing backstage after a show on February 17th, 2000 in Philadelphia, PA. To my enjoyment, he really liked it and I’ll never forget it. Audio A will most likely remain my all-time favorite band. And, incidentally, is the only band I’ve ever drawn all the members of!
