It pains me to see this photo of my precious Amy Winehouse. I don't know if she just has a naturally jacked up grill or if it's something far more destructive. Which ever, I had to floss and brush my teeth before I sat down to do these drawings. As I was drawing the above image I really got into the swirling lines of her hair. It reminded me of one of my favorite album covers by Milton Glaser. So I took the above image a step further and did this:
This is an aside story. Earlier today before I saw that photo of Miss Winehouse I had coffee with my pal Ashley who had seen Amy perform at the Coachella music festival the previous weekend. Ashley said that Miss Winehouse was clearly drunk during her one hour set and she kept asking for her "medicine". Ashley said in spite of her obvious intoxication, that Amy put on an amazing show.
Oh Amy, please get it together.
