Italian comics artist Paolo Parisi has recently spent some time away from his usual framed narratives, applying his capable hands to some wonderfully expressive portraits. Ladies Sing the Blues is a fairly self-explanatory body of work that features inkily rendered representations of some of the late, great women of early 20th Century R&B. It’s got Ella, Nina and Aretha, not to mention Billie, Bessie and Ma all immortalised in Paolo’s signature style.
Rather excitingly for us, and anyone else in the London area, all of these beautiful drawings will be on display at Gosh Comics from the 11th of August so you can swing by and properly appreciate the brushwork of an illustrative wizard.
