“The Nina Simone Illustration” by Dan Lish (Ink and Digital, NFS) “The Nina Simone illustration was inspired by her song ‘Funkier than a Mostquito’s Tweeter’ – for me, a B-Boy Classic. Her face being the main focal point, this gave me a chance to explore patterns and the depiction of energy around her and the Mosquito man gluggling from buckets of crud. The piano depicts her inner-struggles with the effects of Bipolar, the social constructs at the time, the music business and her personal relationships.”
