Standing in the Shadows of Elvis

Here are variations of an illustration for this week's City Paper book review of Leiber and Stollers' new Autobiography "Hound Dog." It opens with a story about them finally being accepted as songwriters after years of not being taken seriously by the songwriting elite who thought writing for Elvis was a bad thing. Stupid song writing elite...Here's some art.

Thanks Dominic. I had to make up for giving Elvis the mod cut in the last illustration. I think I'm just jealous about not having my pompadour anymore.
