Rock N Roll and Pure Funk by Kagan McLeod

The Museum of UnCut Funk recently featured Kagan McLeod and his Infinite Kung Fu graphic novel in Aesthetic Grooves. VERY FUNKY STUFF. You can read all about it here – http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2012/04/07/infinite-kung-fu-part-1-by-kagan-mcleod/. While checking out Kagan’s work I stumbled across his amazing music themed ink drawings of some of my musical heroes. I reached out to Kagan and got his approval to post this work on our site. This cat creates some of the flyest images that fully represents what the Museum is all about.

Thanks Kagan…Sista ToFunky!
