Too late for Halloween, but totally by coincidence this will be posted just in time for the verdict in the Murray trial to be announced.

Want it hanging in your home?...and who wouldn't??

I'd wanted to do an image or two of MJ for a couple of years and still remember vividly from my childhood the first time we saw the Thriller video at my friend's house. I finally got around to doodling something the other day in ink and while that's not worth even scanning and posting, it kept me motivated into starting a painting.

I started sketching out the underdrawing and since I'd been drawing some quicker portraits in pencil lately wanted to keep it brief and get right to the painting. Then after an hour or two I realized that I'd gotten fairly involved in doing detail and shading and abandoned that plan. So I actually did a tight detailed black and white graphite drawing on watercolor paper and was resolved to trying to lay washes of color over a tight pencil drawing kind of the way I've seen ALAN LEE illustrate.



Again, since this wasn't the original plan and this paper had texture to it, it was a struggle to draw on it and get even tones. Then I didn't know if running a brush over the pencils would smudge the drawing and I also wasn't sure how the paint would lie on the paper if I sealed the drawing down with some kind of spray so I just went for it and after a few light washes of some color decided to stop. It has the feel of a colorized Ted Turner movie or a color tinted black and white photo, but that's OK. It doesn't bother me or feel wrong.

Here's a poor scan of the original pencil drawing before I applied any color.



As you can see the dark graphite areas are highly reflective and distracting when looking at it.


(AFTER putting down some watercolors).


 I also was a little worried about the graphite smudging and instead of spraying it, I took some acrylic gloss medium varnish that I had laying around and gave the entire thing a coat. 


Now the whole thing is slick, shiny and most importantly better protected. It also scans much better for whatever reason.

Moving through the air and you have no cares

The whole world can fall apart
Everybody likes you in the dark, woah
Moving in the colored lights and it feels so right

All the world's gonna fall in line
Everybody else will come in time, woah
Like a feeling through the floor, but it's so much more

In the words, can you feel my love?
Everyone's resting, disco time, woah
Like you're flying through the night in your disco light

Walking down the street at night
The whole world just comes alight, woah
Moving through the air and you have no cares

ENTERTAINMENT: #Music ( EDM ) Chemical Brothers "Out of Control"

Music video by The Chemical Brothers performing Out Of Control (2003 Digital Remaster).


Out of control Lyrics

Sometimes I feel that I'm misunderstood

The rivers run and deep right through my thought

Your naked body lying on the ground
You always get me up when I'm down

And it always seems we're runnin' out of time,
We're out of control

Out of Control
Out of control

Maybe I'm just scared of losin' you
Or maybe it's the things you make me do
It seems to me we both should hang around
And raise the population of this town
And it always seems we're runnin' out of time,

We're out of control
Out of Control
We're out of control
Out of Control

But It doesn't mean we're too far down the line
We're out of control
Out of Control

The record player keeps on turning round
It could be stuck or maybe it's a sound
All the time I should be there with you
But maybe I'm just searchin' for the truth
Or maybe I'm just searchin' for the truth
And it always seems we're running out of time.

We're Out Of Control
Out Of control
We're Out Of Control
Out Of control

But It doesn't mean we're too far down the line
We're Out Of Control
Out Of control
We're Out Of Control
Out Of control

Could be that I'm just losing my touch
Or maybe you think my moustache is too much
Satellite is out of control
But you and I are brothers of the soul
And you and I will come in from the cold

Out of control, Out of control
We're out of control
Out of control

A.M BLOG: WIKI - William Edward Burghardt "W. E. B."

William Edward Burghardt "W. E. B." Du Bois (pronounced doo-BOYZ, /duːˈbɔɪz/; February 23, 1868 – August 27, 1963) was an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor. 


Born in western Massachusetts, Du Bois grew up in a tolerant community and experienced little racism as a child. After graduating from Harvard, where he was the first African American to earn a doctorate, he became a professor of history, sociology, and economics at Atlanta University.


Du Bois was one of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.Du Bois rose to national prominence as the leader of the Niagara Movement, a group of African American activists who wanted equal rights for blacks. 


Du Bois and his supporters opposed the Atlanta Compromise, an agreement crafted by Booker T. Washington which provided that Southern blacks would work and submit to white political rule, while Southern whites guaranteed that blacks would receive basic educational and economic opportunities. Instead, Du Bois insisted on full civil rights and increased political representation, which he believed would be brought about by the African-American intellectual elite.

He referred to this group as the talented tenth and believed that African Americans needed the chances for advanced education to develop its leadership.

Racism was the main target of Du Bois's polemics, and he strongly protested against lynching, Jim Crow laws, and discrimination in education and employment. His cause included colored persons everywhere, particularly Africans and Asians in their struggles against colonialism and imperialism. He was a proponent of Pan-Africanism and helped organize several Pan-African Congresses to free African colonies from European powers. 

Du Bois made several trips to Europe, Africa, and Asia. After World War I, he surveyed the experiences of American black soldiers in France and documented widespread bigotry in the United States military.Du Bois was a prolific author. 


His collection of essays, The Souls of Black Folk, was a seminal work in African-American literature; and his 1935 magnum opus Black Reconstruction in America challenged the prevailing orthodoxy that blacks were responsible for the failures of the Reconstruction era. 


He wrote the first scientific treatise in the field of sociology; and he published three autobiographies, each of which contains insightful essays on sociology, politics, and history. In his role as editor of the NAACP's journal The Crisis, he published many influential pieces.

Du Bois believed that capitalism was a primary cause of racism, and he was generally sympathetic to socialist causes throughout his life. He was an ardent peace activist and advocated nuclear disarmament. The United States' Civil Rights Act, embodying many of the reforms for which Du Bois had campaigned his entire life, was enacted a year after his death.
