Book Illustration Project

These are illustrations and ideas for illustrations for a memoir book by Nathan ¨Pedro¨Lewis. I got news that he passed away and the project is on hold, until the editor decides what to do. Nathan Lewis was a singer in the Do-Wop group, The Ovations, and this is to be a book that tells of his life on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee, USA.
