Work in Progress - Abba Zaba

click to enlarge

For our single-book-projekt I‘ve ultimately chosen one of Captain Beefhearts finest singles, „Abba Zaba“, recorded in 1967. During his career the Captain often referred to certain aspects of american indian culture (in our book I will explain some of these items). "Abba Zaba", for example, was inspired by these typical primitive „indianlike“ rhythms used in all 50/60ies western movies.

And for me this was also an occasion to work with ethnological stuff again... I think I will finish this drawing tomorrow by using ink (brush, pen) and grey polychromos .

Greetings, Dieter
