Song part 2 for Illustration Friday


Not content with my freakish baby drawing, I decided to draw one of my favourite songwriters & singers, Nick Cave. This was drawn from the album cover of The Boatman's Call. When I listen to his music I feel darkly luminescent, electric. Not sure this drawing captures that at all, but here it is anyway. Posted by Picasa

For someone with a very limited amount of training in the fine arts, your work displays a strong, confident line! Nice job!

Nice job, he has a great face to try and draw. I am playing a guess that song game on my blog, pop by and hazzard a guess!

Thanks for your comments everyone!

Yeah, fantastic. Dark, rough, and brooding. Perfect edge to compliment the subject.

I've never heard of Nick Cave, but looking at your drawing of him, I don't believe he's anyone I'd ever want to meet! But he does look like someone I'd like to have on my side if I ever get into a fight! Shiver me timbers!

As was noted, Mr Cave is meant to be scary, he's famous for his darkness, he wrote some fantastic "murder ballads", but also has a softer romantic side. Wonderful singer and songwriter.
