I have been working hard to try and get back to GOOD art. Get used to the changes of my main art app that I hadn’t been able to use for several weeks. The combination of just…losing my “muse” and the overhaul of my main art app just had me artistically floundering!
Other things too. Yeah.
Anyway, this is the first one in months I’ve looked at and gone “Yep! That’s good!”
I wasn’t going to put the Bowie lyrics to it. In my head I just had the word “celestial” swimming round. Jim…a celestial being. I’ll sound a complete crackpot…but I don’t fucking care. For many Bowie himself is – but for me, it’s Jim – the most beautiful man I have ever seen. And I sssoooo get how MANY people view David that way. There’s no way to deny it. I see it too.
In the final moments “press your space face close to mine, love” came into my head. So how could I NOT apply those words? Jim and David just mean the world to me. And the link is there with “space face”. It’s my “go to” Simple Minds song when I really need to be uplifted. It helps me more than any other.
But…I won’t lie. Lately I have felt alone. Those words “I’ll be there, you’re not alone” at the beginning of 2016 were a LIFELINE!
I’m clawing my way out again. I’m fighting. Finding my way through it. I always do. I get really scared that one day I might not be able to. There was a time, many years back, when it seemed like I never would.
Anyway. Yesterday (as it is now Sunday) was a good day.
P.S. The shape of his mouth is the thing that made this whole piece for me. I find the shape of his mouth DIVINE!
If you ever visit this blog, Jim…I always worry you think me the silliest, most deluded twerp on the face of the earth – but I’m just human. And you’re beautiful.
