17. “Cape Canaveral”
A Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band inspired illustration drawn from artlines. The Song “Cape Canaveral” is a humbling song I’ve been thinking about all month.
Andrea and I sat in the library,
I drew what I didn’t know,
and I got this.
The library closed early,
So we sat outside on the steps for 2 hrs or something,
enjoyed the time that passed with each others company,
joked about the pretentious words of Stephen Fry as I drew “Back in your Head”,
enjoyed the presence of public hurrying about on their Friday evening.
I think she was a wee bit creeped out by my drawings, but she’s the only person I share them with in detail and accepts they’re mine. “Very me”, and that’s one of the reasons why I love that kid, very much and I often let her know haha she knows this when its: 3am, we’re still cramming study in and having each other on the side on skype so we’re not alone. I did attempt to draw her once but it tragically failed and resulted in an interesting image of an aged bald woman. Long story short, I cannot draw with the strong goal of achieving Realism haha its just how I am.
