One of my “Best Good Friends” ( I know that shit sounds country ) Was named after his grandfather Eubie Blake an American composer, lyricist, and pianist of ragtime, jazz, and popular music. One day my friend and I were discussing his namesake and he informed me he had some old pictures of him. My friend left and returned with the photos. He had old ticket stubs, play bills, and some photos that where in fantastically vintage form. I wanted to use them for something immediately. My friend is one of the coolest, chill, and Laid back people I have ever met. I wanted to find a way to incorporate the old photos, my friends namesake, and his demeanor into composition for a simple print, hence the creation this print entitled “Eubie Doobie”.
