Psychedelic Bob Dylan Illustrations

Psychedelic Bob Dylan

A friend found a children’s book in the library on Bob Dylan published in 1975 that features the most amazing psychedelic watercolour artwork. I wanted to scan them and share them, because you just don’t see illustrations like this anymore and they’re too good to gather dust on a forgotten shelf, passed over for glossy photos of N’Sync.

The illustrations are credited to John Keely, who seems to have had a hand in the artwork for an Olivia Newton-John biography, and sadly nothing else I could turn up.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for other books in this series for use in future posts – I know for a fact there is a Johnny Cash one out there – it’s a cool way to do an artist spotlight. Anyway, I hope you like ’em as much as I do!
