Dean Martin - Westchester Magazine
Got an illustration appearing in this month's Westchester Magazine of Dean Martin - Ring-A-Ding DING! - on the Yonkers Pier for a story about song lyrics that include lines with Westchester references in them. There's a bunch, ranging from Lil' Kim to Steely Dan.
Here's some sketches...
“If You Knew Susie” by Dean Martin
“We went riding, she didn't balk / Back from Yonkers / I'm the one that had to walk.”
