Women have always inspired my artistry, especially since my first professional career was as a fashion illustrator. At the Super Bowl, earlier this year Beyonce blew me away with her bold salute to the Black Panther Party. The second image portrays Maude Maggart, who's sister is Fiona Apple. She sings at an open mic I attend. The beauty that flows from every note she sings is awe inspiring and the length of her musical phrases in astounding. She performs a beautiful version of the standard, "Skylark" and the bird above her is a Skylark in flight.
