Marvin Gaye by Manfred Naescher

Marvin Gaye by Manfred Naescher

My illustration of Marvin Gaye for Wire Magazine #327 (May 2011) that accompanied a piece about sweet soul music by David Toop, "Burning Fuse", was an attempt to represent the text's wide range of abstract notions - memory, authenticity, fluidity, desire and softness - through a sense of drift and blur, and with a ghostly presence, in the form of a portrait.
