IF. Legendary

A legendary appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in ’56, seen by nearly 60 million people and a legend was born…even if it was only from the waist up!


I’m not a fan but found myself drawn to the image of Elvis, as contemporary legendary figures go he’s pretty hard to ignore.

NIce! I guess I wasn't the only one who drew Elvis for the IF. I had a Frankenstein Elvis too. Maybe I should upload that as well. It's 2 legends in 1.

Nice subtle combination of textures and elements..I always like images that take shape out of the negative space like the dog, well done!

How fabulous! Love the b/w, with just a touch of color for the TV. Do you think the little doggie is taking it as an insult?

We just had a Sock Hop at our school, and so many of the faculty came with big black Elvis wigs. It was fantastic!
