Description

This limited edition giclée print by artist Bryan Collier beautifully reproduces the original watercolor and collage work titled Trombone Shorty.   Printed on archival paper using a high-quality inkjet printer, each print is signed by the artist, one of a limited edition of 300, and comes with a certificate of authenticity. This strong and affirming image beautifully illustrates the life of jazz icon Troy Andrews (born January 2, 1986), also known by the stage name Trombone Shorty, an American musician, producer, actor and philanthropist from New Orleans, Louisiana.  As  a small child he was nicknamed “Trombone Shorty” because his trombone was twice as large as he was.   Today, Troy Andrews is a Grammy-nominated musician who tours the world with his band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. He continues to inspire hope for the next generation in New Orleans and for music lovers everywhere and Collier's art perfectly capture that spirit. 

Bryan Collier is a beloved illustrator known for his unique style combining watercolor and detailed collage. He is a four-time Caldecott Honor recipient and a six-time Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award recipient. Collier pursued a career in children's illustration after an experience in a bookstore: the books he saw did not look or feel or sound like him or his children. He decided to change that.
