Hey Greg,

Saw your Lemmy on the social medias and it is EPIC. Amazing work. I dunno what you do as a day job but you're definitely a talented artist.

If you're going pop/rock I guess you need to stick to the main players; Beatles, Stones, Bowie etc. I did see recently that Bowie's long time photographer had released a book of rarely seen, candid snaps so maybe some inspiration there?

Something like this perhaps:



Or this, two for the price of one ....
