The Martyrdom Of Biggie Smalls


Personal illustration project

I’m doing a series of drawings depicting musical icons using the language of religious images, of which this is one. Here we see The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls aka Christopher Wallace supported by his friends Lil’ Cease and D-Roc, moments after he was fatally wounded by an unknown assassin in a Chevrolet Impala SS. This is obviously heavily sylised and is not intended to depict actual events.
