Karaoke fever! #11

Made on a page of the 1793 book, Complettes Oeuvres De J. J. Rousseau, 3 5/8 x 5 7/8"

One of a series of 28 illustrations I did for this book project for Bill Roberts' Bottle of Smoke Press.

He was so convinced that Prince was taking all of his money that he got onto crack and fucked everything up. Even his wigs was nasty after a while there. Tragic.
