It’s been a while since I’ve come across a new artist using Ghostsigns as a springboard for their own work. Today, one came into my inbox, this time from Brad Blackman in ‘music city’, Nashville, USA.  It is part of a series called NASHVILLE365, and more along similar lines are set to follow.

Talking about the piece on his blog, Bradman says:

“This piece was a little bit of a challenge, since my reference photo didn’t have much color in it. The subject matter is pretty much black and white to begin with, with a whole lot of gray in between. Rather than letting that hold me back, I chose to throw a lot of color into it. So the shadows have lots of purples, browns, blues, even a hint of red-orange and pink here and there.”

Here are some more artists that have featured in this blog.
