Django Reinhardt illustration


Art: Dimitris Klonos 

This an illustration of the legendary gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. It is inspired by Django's unique style in creating music. Django's music is both classic and modern at the same time and this is something I've tried to express through this illustration. I hope I have succeeded.

Sonny Rollins illustration


Art: Dimitris Klonos

An illustration dedicated to the saxophone colossus and legendary jazz master Sonny Rollins. Sometimes in jazz the musician tries to capture the basic forms of chords and melodies in order to interpret a tune in his own way. I tried something similar in this illustration. By keeping the basic forms I tried to interpret an image in my own way. As a result I've created this abstract illustration of Sonny. I hope I didn't lose the feel in the end!

3D stratocaster electric guitar modeling


3D modeling: Dimitris Klonos
Photoshop color correction: Dimitris Klonos

This is a stratocaster type electric guitar in 3D. The stratocaster type is one of the most famous electric guitar type of all time. As a result, this masterpiece of industrial design inspired me to create a 3D model based on a real strat.

The color of the body of the guitar is the famous sunburst. One of the reasons I have created this 3D model is that I want to experiment with different illustrations and paint jobs on the body and the pickguard of the guitar. Having a 3D model is really easy to change colors and designs in order to study how a certain picture looks on the strat. In future I'll post more on the subject.
