PLAY WHAT’S NOT THERE
A MUSICAL ART SHOWCASE BY DEAN WESTERFIELD
Dean Westerfield’s art style ranges across simple pen and ink, photo-realistic portraiture, beautiful brush landscapes, and clever cartoons. His work is always imbued with a canny eye for what is meaningful, lending a distinctive literary quality to his comics. As a dedicated record collector, his work is often at its most playful when depicting music. He’s currently working on a book about jazz and the legendary saxophonist Albert Ayler. Here is a special sampling of some of his musical artwork.
