I have decided to take on a specific task for my own peace of mind, and because I heart Melissa Etheridge and the kind of message her songs get across. With that said, here is what I intend to do:
I have a list composed of six of her songs from various cds, all of which I own and know by heart because I have been listening to her since I was 3. Anyway! Here are the songs:
"Scarecrow" (written about/for/benefit of Matthew Sheperd)
"Angels Would Fall"
"Talking to My Angel" (written about her father)
"Chrome Plated Heart"
As you can see I also known random stuff about her. Also from my mother and my own research and general interest.
Now, with these songs in mind, I intend to draw pictures to go along with each. Its going to take some time and a shit load of patience. But I am eager to do it. NOw this is a favor I am asking of you guys;
What do you think of the idea?
Do you think its worth pursuing?
And lastly, every once in a while send me a message reminding me to get off my ass and actually finish all of them! Please?
I would really appreciate some response to this. I am excited about the whole idea, but I would like some opinions. And if I do finish them, I'm going to try and post them somewhere at some point for people to look at. All of the songs I chose have special messages and mean a lot to me. If you would like to know what I intend to draw for each song, let me now and I will write another blog describing them. Remember this is EXTREMELY important to me. I intend to go to college for drawing and this will be great practice, and will convey a message along the way!
So yah, please let me know what you think, thank you!
