Hello all, first post here! Where is everybody, anyway? I'm not seeing much activity around here lately. We need to start recruiting people, this comm is too brilliant to go to waste.Okay, so here's my contribution. You guys know the Dylan song, Mama You Been On My Mind? George Harrison did a cover of that at Bob's house in Woodstock, NY (either in '68 or '70) that was recorded in rather shitty quality and is now available on bootleg albums and such. Despite its poor quality, it is by far one of my favorite George songs. It's very soft and comforting and, overall, it gives me this overwhelming feeling of peace. So one day last month, right after I'd gotten some India ink from the art supply store, I was sitting on my bed with the song on repeat and started doodling, just sort of scribbling down what sort of images the song made me picture. And this is the result. Please forgive the lousy quality -- my scanner's busted and my camera's not the greatest in the world. It looks a lot better in person.
This is a little girl that lives in the trailer park near my home. Not only does the tranquility of her eyes capture the "peaceful" setting, but she is Dylanesque!Click for full size image!Just a note to members; Peace is interpretive! If you find it necessary to post a piece of art (art in any form) about war, about fighting etc., believing that its message is a form of "Peace Through Art," GO FOR IT!
Well, I was searching my computer for stuff to post to this shiny new community of ours, and here are some pictures i found that remind me of peaceful times.( Two more under the cut!Collapse )
