When I was in the City yesterday, I saw some interesting art work hand drawn by Charlie Parker himself. Bird was upset by the image that David Stone Martin drew for the cover of CP with Strings. So Parker drew his own image right on the cover in the yellow area. He also did pencil sketches on the paper inner sleeve. Bird's drawings were a great improvement. I agree with Parker. I did not like ANY of the images created by David Stone Martin for a Parker cover, though I enjoy most of his work. Though I enjoy this one below as an art work on its own, it still does not capture Parker's energy at all. I wonder if DSM struggled with how to represent Parker. The bird motif was overdone.
