Guitar Man: Derek Trucks

I decided to get a little crafty before vacation.  I am a little stressed and it helped me to unwind a bit.  I am almost packed so I justified my time.  I had these pics already printed when I saw the challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2.  It is Elvis!  "Guitar Man" is a Jerry Reed song that Elvis covered and charted on the country charts with Jerry Reed on guitar.  I have used this cut before so I knew if would go smoothly.  

My pictures are of Derek Trucks during a Tedeschi Trucks Band show.  You might can tell I was on the front row.  My favorite place!

Here's the sketch I used from Stick It Down:

I have not used this font and I was really happy with it.  It is a true type that I purchased with a collection.  I used a Wink of Stella black pen to highlight the interior of the letters and some of the guitar details.
