I drew this piece for Kylie, as we were going to the Roger Waters concert, and I wanted to give her the opportunity to meet him, if I could. I had already started the two Roger Waters pieces that we would try to use as leverage, when Kylie gave me a couple of images of Pink Floyd from the era involving Roger, as well as Syd Barrett. This was her favourite of the two, and I agreed it would definitely make a fantastic image in charcoal, so despite the fact that I would have a total of eight days to complete the three pieces, I made a start.

It was a fun piece to draw, with its challenging perspective and interesting angles, not to mention the sun glaring behind them.

All three pieces were finished within the eight days, a record effort from me, albeit amid a few sleepless nights.
