A new set of icons in the making

A couple of months ago I started thinking about a new illustration and collage project I'd like to get my teeth stuck into. I'm keen on continuing with icon portraits and as a huge music lover I've still got dozens and dozens of icons I want to do portraits of. But I needed something, a theme. After a bit of rumination and cogitation I decided on Psychedelic Icons or more simply Psych Icons. I've always been a big fan of psychedelic music from the 60's and early 70's and have been wanting to do portraits of Hendrix and Syd Barrett for awhile now. So that's it, my next big portraits project.

So, who do I do? Well, I've already started work on a Jimi Hendrix, a Grace Slick, a Janis Joplin, a Syd Barrett, a Jim Morrison and a Jerry Garcia (I've been busy - and my recent John Lennon portrait's going into the mix too) but I'm still umming and ahhing about the next handful. I'm thinking maybe Love's Arthur Lee, Mama Cass, and maybe the original Tyrranosaurus Rex line up? Can you think of anyone I'm missing?
