Lewis Allan Reed (March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013) was an American musician, songwriter, and poet. He was the guitarist, singer, and principal songwriter for the rock band the Velvet Underground and had a solo career that spanned five decades. Although not commercially successful during its existence, the Velvet Underground became regarded as one of the most influential bands in the history of underground and alternative rock music. Reed's distinctive deadpan voice, poetic and transgressive lyrics, and experimental guitar playing were trademarks throughout his long career.
I had a solo show of 20 drawings of authors, all done in pencil and Conte. The show was a success! It was tons of fun to draw them. Since then I have also done Jimi Hendrix, Louis Armstrong, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, Syd Barrett, Dimebag Darrell, and Gary Numan. I have prints of most of them available.
This is a signed 8" x 10" signed print made from a pencil and Conte drawing on toned tan paper. The print is on archival matte photo paper.
The original is not available.
