👊🏼 Naka-trabaho ko s’ya several times (#BubbleGang and #SanMiguel). Always admired his worry free attitude. It would be a dishonor not to give this gentleman the rock & roll tribute he deserves. 🙏🏼 Drawn on an iPad Pro using Procreate app. Swipe to see the time lapse.

Michael V, also known as Bitoy, posted his artwork of the Pinoy rock pioneer via Instagram on Tuesday.
In the same post, he also shared a time lapse of his sketch with Smith’s “Mighty Great Big-Hearted Love” playing on the background.
“Naka-trabaho ko s’ya several times. Always admired his worry free attitude. It would be a dishonor not to give this gentleman the rock & roll tribute he deserves,” Bitoy wrote in the caption.
Smith passed away last January 28, 2019 at the age of 71.
