Well, this is pretty cool. Any way in which my art is appreciated and used these days makes me happy. So, to be alerted to the Colours Fly And Catherine Wheel piece being used as a FB video ident was a nice surprise – even if the FB page itself blocked me some time ago.
And this one always feels so special because it was at a time where I felt I was bombarding Jim with stuff…and he very kindly…and probably most likely to his eternal regret, was so, so wonderful and encouraging to me and gave me such positive feedback!
It was probably the day I fell in love with him! Lol.
Oh, god. I’ll make him regret it even MORE now!
The ident is fleeting but …
A song you like with a person’s name in it.
Not much choice in the SM canon, but I love this anyway.
I don’t know why I decided to redo it. Jim liked the first one…I don’t think I’ve ever redone one that he liked…other than Hunter And The Hunted…but that was due to the guilt of using copyright images…and…well, the original one is beautiful.
Experimentation I suppose was at the heart of it. I really do need to crack on with getting more originals done. I’m gonna run out of time to do them
And what he said of my art piece back when I did it. He probably RUES ever acknowledging any of my stuff now. Sorry, sir. All of it was only ever born out of love. The love of the music. The words. The band.
