Rock Vocalist Grace Slick, who burst on the music scene with Jefferson Airplane in the late 1960s, has turned her attention to sketching and is turning out chalk-pencil portraits of fellow rock legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin.

Immortalized on such rock classics as White Rabbit and Somebody to Love, Slick, 60, embodied the flower-power counterculture and was one of the most distinctive voices of the anti-establishment, political rebellion of the 1960s. Jefferson Airplane was known for its psychedelic light shows, strong choral harmonies, erratic, in-your-face behavior and politically charged material. Slick was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 1996.

Always raucous and self-effacing, Slick told the press last year that entering the art world has helped keep her from "turning into a thumb-sucking mess in the corner."
She has let her hair go white, posed for a "Cauliflower Power" poster that pushes vegetarianism and is so into animal rights that she won't wear leather or fur.
