Illustration Friday-Stay

The word for this week was "stay." I knew a lot of my fellow artists would probably illustrate the command for dogs or some variation of that command. I went in a different direction.

I thought of that old great pop song "Stay." You know it.....Stay A-a-a-a-ah, just a little bit longer (Please) Please, please, please, please Tell me you're going to....Remakes of this great song were done by several artists and hits came from the versions by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and Jackson Browne.

The original hit though that most of us know was penned by a 15 year old Maurice Williams and recorded later by Williams and his group the Zodiacs. That is who I chose to depict in my illustration....Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs in the studio (or on stage singing "Stay." I hope that you like it.
