Sax Graffiti In New York

I noticed this great photo of some saxophone graffiti in Brooklyn. It does indeed appear to be…

This is without a doubt, the most interesting, and beautiful piece of saxophone graffiti that I’ve seen. Two different artists have 2 very different styles, and 2 very different versions of female sax players.

The 1940s graphic-style depiction of a saxophone player, reminds me of some of the pin-ups that were popular during WWII, and also the nose art that adorned the air craft of WWII.

I wonder who the artist for this particular painting was? Maybe someone who works on graphic novels?
