Airbrush of Ice-T’s Ex-Wife

Back in the 1980’s, I saw rock music lovers wearing paintings on the backs of their jackets.  Some paintings were names and pictures of their favorite music artist.  Some were punk and rock inspired art.  I say paintings.  Yet, some jacket art was done with magic markers and airbrushing.

One day, I saw a guy in the local mall airbrushing pictures of people.  Thinking of the rock lover’s jackets, I desired a hip-hop version of what they wore.  I took the guy a photo of  rapper Ice-T’s Power album.  On the cover was Ice-T, DJ Evil E and Darlene Ortiz.

At the time, Darlene was Ice-T’s girlfriend who eventually became his wife (and ex-wife).

I wanted the artist to airbrush Darlene on my jacket.  He charged me fifty bucks.

At the time, I thought that was too much.  I didn’t understand art then.  In all reality, he was charging cheap for what I asked for.

To this day, I think those fifty bucks were damned worth it.
