Note: American singer Bob Dylan is considered by many to be one of the greatest songwriters of all time and has sold more than 125 million records. Although his musical success is common knowledge, it is slightly lesser known that Dylan also works in the visual arts, along with the musical arts. While on tour from 1989-1992, he created a series of drawings, comprising of scenes from life on the road. Originally they were compiled in a book and published in 1994, titled Drawn Blank. In 2006, Dylan was asked to create a museum exhibition from this body of work. Dylan had time to evolve the pictures, this time executing them in watercolours and gouache, giving them a more vibrant and expressive tone, and these became known as The Drawn Blank Series, with the originals being exhibited in 2007. In subsequent years, signed limited edition prints of these images were released and the collector demand has been "massive".
