I received a few recent requests about my comic illustration published back in November 2018, so here you go. Enjoy!
Years ago, when I dabbled in cartooning, I developed a presentation style where the character on the left makes a statement with a speech balloon while the character on the right responds with a thought balloon—always in sharp contrast. I had a lot of fun with it.

Here, illustrator Keith Henry Brown and I collaborated on this speech / thought exchange.




Keith Henry Brown's art can be seen on Jazz Appreciation Month posters as well as several Mack Avenue Records album covers. He is the illustrator of the children's picture book, Birth of The Cool: How Jazz Great Miles Davis Found His Sound.

Michael Ricci, a man of peculiar talents, resides here.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
