In The Backseat by TheMountebank In The Backseat by TheMountebank
A drawing.

Of Jeff Buckley.

Done in pastels.

Started around midnight.

Finished around 10 to 2 in the morning.

Yeah.

It's a bit fucked but I haven't drawn anything in a long time.

I think it's beautiful! You're really good at capturing the man's spirit on paper! Absolutely gorgeous. Incidentally...I'm listening to his rendition of "The Way Young Lover's Do" from Sin-e! Brilliant mix of colours and his haunting voice!

No 'fraid it wasn't as good as it could've been because I have this cold. My voice wasn't as good as it could've been. It was running behind schedule as well so I had to cut a song.

And it didn't get filmed because my friend who was going to film it wasn't allowed to bring her cameras because her mum is silly.

Next time

Awww...perhaps! What songs were you sining?

TheMountebank Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2007
My songs. The song I cut was a cover of a Blur song called To The End. I also started the set with an acapella version of Frank Sinatra's In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning which lead into one of my songs. Also a quick rendition of Bauhaus' All We Ever Wanted Was Everything in 3/4 which lead into one of my songs.

Oh WOW... That's really amazing. It looks like stage lighting... Like he's sitting backstage waiting to go on, contemplating. Or maybe in a taxi on the way home. Actually, being called what it is, that might make more sense. Heh.

Anyway, I think it's brill.

Hehe thankyou. Stage lighting, I like that. But yes, he is infact sitting in the back seat of a car looking all contemplative.

Thanks.

haha nice one. I never thought of it like that. Interesting.

oh wait! it looks like that because I photoshopped it. I'm looking at the original right now, it looks much less bright and stuff. Maybe I should put that up.
