The TOP IMAGE is a Pixelmator workup I did of the Coming to Memphis scene.  The next image is the original sketch for this scene.  I remembered my first time crossing the bridge to the "big city" of Memphis (I grew up in a town of 7,000) and being astonished at the VERTICAL ORIENTATION of the city.  I wanted to make B.B.'s environment here as different aspkossible from the HORIZONTAL world he grew up in.

The next sketch is of B.B. recording "The Thrill is Gone" in the studio. 

The last image is of a board representing "The Thrill is Gone" becoming a hit.  And the individual elements that would help add movement to the scene.
