Who knew the guy could paint? Bob Dylan: The Drawn Blank Series (Prestel) collects 170 works in watercolor and gouache, based on drawings this multitalented legend made on tour from 1989 to 1992. Here are interiors of hotel rooms, walls slightly askew, as if a restless spirit were pushing them outward, as well as lyrically sensuous women (think "Lay, Lady, Lay"), all rendered with a musician's instinct for delicate shadings and bright coloration.
