While writing the previous post (to see it, click on the arrows that should be visible just to left of the text), it became apparent that a lot of people end up visiting this site due to the inclusion song lyrics in the text and the titles. Far be it from me to pass up the opportunity to exploit this fact. So…
Welcome, Elton John fans, to ‘Gabriel Garbow | Artworks’.
Stick around awhile and make yourselves at home.
You will not learn anything about Sir John here. But you will a little bit about what one of the Bespectacled Spectacle’s songs inspired a devotee to draw. This is what happens when you sit down at the computer, open Photoshop and queue up “Madman Across the Water” on the Media Player. About two-thirds of the way through the album, a little ditty about juicy fruit and desperation comes on with an ascending slide guitar sound: Rotten Peaches.
It starts with a tale of criminals on the run from the law, picking peaches to survive, and it ends with about a minute of “la la la-la-la-la, la la la-la-laa, la la la-la laaaaaa…”
And it inspired this drawing:
These guys are sort of a companion piece to the “Sad Tomato” in this earlier post (click here).
Besides the obvious debt owed to the lyric-induced image of a bunch of “Devil Fruit”, the main aim of this piece was to try out a quirky color scheme. I am pleased with the slightly unsettling result.
Do you agree? Disagree? Want to chide me for tempting you with piano rock? Scroll down and leave a comment.
And have a juicy day.
