Todd DiCiurcio Brings Awesome Rock Band Artwork To Cosmopolitan Hotel (PHOTOS)

If Ralph Steadman and Quentin Blake went to a concert together, we imagine their joint creation would resemble Todd DiCiurcio's artwork.

The New York-based illustrator works in charcoal to bring his favorite rock legends from stage to paper, while keeping the momentum of the performance intact. Since drawing Guided By Voices in 1999, DiCiurcio has gone on to capture the stage presence of The Rolling Stones, Cat Power, New Order, and more.

"My drawing process needs to be done strictly during performance, but not performance based," DiCiurcio explained to the blog, Monster Children. "The goal is always to create a dialogue between mark making and the music."

DiCiurcio's "Draw Us Sin" will show at P3 Studio Space at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas from April 17 until May 12.
