Trying to get my mind off this Covid-19 pandemic. So today I drew Post-Punk legend Gary Numan.
Like everyone else, my introduction to Numan came through his classic album The Pleasure Principle. It’s an album I still play to this day. Mixing dystoptian influences with new wave sounds, Numan had an international hit with the song Cars. Numan is far from being a one note act. He’s also an accomplished aviator. Besides electronic new wave, he’s dipped into experimenting with jazz, funk and rock.
Numan first fortay into the public spotlight was with the band Tubeway Army. After he went solo, the rest is history. Numan is still going strong today, releasing albums and touring. I finally had a chance to see him live in December 2017. Numan and his band performed most of the songs from the album The Pleasure Principle.
