For years I’ve 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. I was able accomplish this goal and gave him a copy of the drawing backstage after a show on February 17th, 2000 in Philadelphia, PA. He really liked it and so did the rest of the guys, so I told them I’d work on drawing all of them eventually. Guitarist Tyler Burkum was intended to be the 5th of the 5 portraits in this “series,” but with Bob’s departure from the band, it kind of shortened things. This picture was one of the only portraits I drew in 2001. It was completed in the end of June. A copy of this drawing was presented to Tyler at Creation 2001.
