My wife, Rachel is a Frank Zappa obsessive. She's learnt half a dozen of his songs on piano, watched every documentary on him ever made, baked Zappa tribute cakes for fellow obsessives, and she's pretty much forced me to concede that I like at least 3 or 4 of his albums. He's a great person to draw and I've doodled him many times for birthday cards and CD inlays etc. My original plan was to to a portrait of Zappa and Captain Beefheart together but I couldn't get it just right so I ended up doing with two separate illustrations, both in my usual cut and paste portrait style and with a bit of collage thrown in for effect... And the wife likes it, so I'm happy.
