Ike Stubblefield – an artist with soul and grace, and what a face

© John Gellman

How cool is it to have a great guy like Ike Stubblefield agree to sit for a quick portrait session, to appear on the seventh anniversary of this blog? He has the coolest face this side of Morgan Freeman, with a lifetime of music and art etched into his cheeks and glowing from his eyes. An American Master on keyboards for sure. I’ve known Ike since I shot an album cover for him almost four years ago. He happened to be performing in Asheville last night, and immediately agreed to visit me at my Flatiron Studio when I asked him if he would pose. I’m grateful he took the time from his busy schedule to spend a few minutes and let me do my thing.

And yes, this is the seventh anniversary of my blog. It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long. It has been a lot of work, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Many thanks to all those who have followed the blog since I started in May 2010, as well as to those who have discovered it more recently.
