Muddy Waters

This is my piece for Robin Eley and Scott Anderson's assignment to do a portrait for Rolling Stone of somebody with the letter that was given to us. I got the letter M, which has too many options, but I chose to do Muddy Waters because he is great. I tried to depict him as the father of Chicago blues, who brought delta blues to the city and turned it electric.
