I promised to myself sometime back in late 2016 to create more band portraits. Well, I took my time after finishing a Lynyrd Skynyrd commission in September '16 but I got there eventually (and I plan on many more in the future). The Black Sabbath idea came off the back of some card I had in stock. I had a few sheets of black leather effect card, a pack of cards with marbled patterned rock textures on and finally lots of purple card. In my head a voice, "whispered, do a Black Sabbath portrait". One of my favourite album covers is the cover to Black Sabbath's debut self-titled album, so I started looking at other covers and posters from their 70's pomp and that gave me the idea of bringing together the purple shades and doing something a little bit different. I wanted a playful gloominess and something ever so slightly goth and psychedelic.
