The story:

Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger

Mick Jagger was born on July 26th, 1943 in Dartford, Kent, England. He is an English singer, songwriter and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of The Rolling Stones.

Jagger’s career has spanned over 50 years, and he has been described as “one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of rock & roll”. His distinctive voice and performance, along with Keith Richards’ guitar style, have been the trademark of the Rolling Stones throughout the career of the band. Jagger gained press notoriety for his admitted drug use and romantic involvements and was often portrayed as a countercultural figure.

Jagger was born and grew up in Dartford, Kent. He studied at the London School of Economics before abandoning his academic career to join the Rolling Stones. Jagger has written most of the Rolling Stones’ songs together with Richards, and they continue to collaborate musically. In the late 1960s, Jagger began acting in films (starting with Performance and Ned Kelly), to a mixed reception. He began a solo career in 1985, releasing his first album, She’s the Boss, and joined the electric supergroup SuperHeavy in 2009. Relationships with the Stones’ members, particularly Richards, deteriorated during the 1980s, but Jagger has always found more success with the band than with his solo and side projects.

In 1989 Jagger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 into the UK Music Hall of Fame with the Rolling Stones. As member of the Stones, and as solo artist, he reached number one on the UK and US singles charts with 13 singles, the Top 10 with 32 singles and the Top 40 with 70 singles.

In 2003, he was knighted for his services to popular music.

The artwork:

Each illustration is tied to some sort of benevolence. The first print of this Mick Jagger illustration was sold in a silent auction at a BBQ fund raiser organized by Kim Campbell for her father, a war veteran of Vietnam who was injured in a motorcycle accident. Funds were used to offset medical bills from the accident. The fundraiser was held at Cindy’s Gone Hog Wild in Garfield, Texas.
