A friend is looking for a vintage bass drum head with or without a bass drum.
He really likes the one shown below but might be in others.

I'm having a local artist do one for me; she's picking up the head tomorrow and showing me some compositions to choose from. If she does a good job, I'll publish her work here. I know she is more comfortable copying a design and adapting it to a round head rather than creating a new one.

Here is her work. I had a drawing on my wall that I wanted on a bass head, and she did a good job adapting it to a 20" head, with little filler up at the top (the drawing is rectangular). I showed her your friend's fairy drum head design and she could duplicate that as well. Let me know if you want more information from her.
