i've been working on this drawing of jim morrison of the doors and his girlfriend pam for over a year now. at first i drew it half-assed over three days, and when i was about to hang it a few months ago i realized how crappily i had drawn it. so i have been adding lots of detail, and i pretty much re-drew both of their faces completely. this is the longest i've spent on any drawing, i'm so glad to call it done. i'll finally hang it to keep me from working on it more.
i found the photo for this drawing in rolling stone magazine sometime last year. i always wanted to draw jim. i really loved how they both look so peaceful in the photo, not long before jim's death. it's almost a haunting look in his eyes.
this was done on bristol board, measures 10 inches by 9 inches, i used mechanical pencils and an ebony pencil. lots of blending stumps, tissue paper, kneadable eraser action, and frustration. there's a line on jim's forehead because i had to piece together two separate scans...it was too big to fit on the scanner bed. overall i'm pretty pleased with how it came out.
