this illustration of Belle & Sebastian is actually very small. it was commissioned by Measure Magazine to accompany a tidbit of text. the challenge of the assignment was the number -between seven and twelve- of musicians in the group. whom should i include in such a small space? after much too much research, i drew the founding members, Stuarts David and Murdoch. the girl on the t-shirt is Isobel Campbell, a fan favorite, who recently left the band.
