I love jazz. Iíve played the trumpet. I was in jazz band. So working with this poem was easy.As soon as I read it, I envisioned a trio of musiciansóa singer, a trumpet player and a drummer.

I always work in black line and watercolor, so that part is typical. For the drawing, I looked at some photos of jazz bars and instruments, and then did a lot of it in my imagination. Itís usually pretty spontaneous like that.

I like the way the image turned out. It makes you feel jazzy. And I think itís sensual without being sexual or offensive.

Friday night a vein
throbs sensuously, pulsing
with muscular jazz.
