Esperanza Spalding

Here’s a recent drawing I did for Omega Lifestyles Magazine of the bassist/singer Esperanza Spalding. She’s nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Artist category, she’ll have to beat out a girl named Justin Beiber.

This is beautiful Paul, the peach color and white bass set each other off really nicely.

Oh, what a cut. Nice drawing of a very smart musician.

Beautiful, Paul! Esperanza means hope in Spanish and she's bringing that to the music scene.

Nothing against Beiber, he was tactful, but Esperanza is more worthy of her award than any nominee I could imagine: she's from humble roots, has worked hard to overcome daunting obstacles, is a composer, player and a leader. Nice drawing, Paul.
