I've been fascinated by Tom Waits ever since an old friend introduced me to his music when I was around 16 years old in the early 90's. I really like his early piano led, jazzy, 'drinking late at night' albums, but it's the otherwordly blues growls of albums like Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs and Bone Machine that really tickle the musical bit of my brain. He's a hell of interesting character too, so it seemed obvious to do an illustration of him. I used a pretty early shot as the source photo for the piece, iconic floppy hair and cigarette both there and it seems to be a bit of a favourite with friends I've shown it to.
