In this recent cover for the Miami New Times, I was asked to illustrate the “king” of Miami night life, night club magnate David Grutman. Along with the king on his disco chess board are Hulk Hogan, Kim Kardashian , and Nick Jonas chess pieces–all regulars that you can find hanging out in one of his clubs on any given night–that is, if you’re so cool and fortunate to get into one of his clubs. Sadly I am not part of that crowd, sigh.
His most popular club is called LIV, hence the pun in the cover headline. Oh, and a trivia tidbit for all you disco era folks–LIV is “54” in roman numerals. Anyways, big thanks to some fine art directing by Kristin Bjornsen.
