Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino Jr.
is a New Orleans born and raised
rock and roll pioneer.
His powerful voice and boogie woogie piano playing
garnered 35 Top 40 hits and did much to shape
all popular music for more than a decade.
The base of this piece is made from parts of
an old Peaches record crate.
The keyboard I carved out of bass wood.
Yes, I spelled out his name with Scrabble
letters. I figured Domino, games, Scrabble. Why not?
Fats himself I painted onto a thin piece of wood
I cut out with my trusty jigsaw.
There's another photo below to show you the
3-dimensioness of the keyboard.
