More of your artwork

David, by JessicaI’ve been really impressed with the quality of some of the things you’ve recently submitted, be they photographs, paintings, sketches or drawings. (That’s if a sketch differs from a drawing. Does it?)

This one’s by Jessica. Please click it for a closer look.

Thanks for sharing it with us, Jessica.

If you have anything that you think would look good here, please send it in. Just get it online and let me know where it is by including the URL with your comment.

It has to be of some relevance, of course.

I’ll be adding my favourite works of fan art regularly, along with your equally charming photographs.

Have a good weekend, everyone. See you on Monday; either here, or in the chatroom, which will be open between 14:00 and 16:00 (UK).

  1. That is a nice piece art. Thanks for sharing it Jessica.

    Have a nice one everybody.

  2. nice work, jessica! i can’t draw. i never was any good at art at school.

    a fab weekend to all. x

  3. I’m not surprised that David has been a source of inspiration for many talented artists.

    Thank you, Jessica.

  4. How do I get the password for the chat?

    [You need to get in before closing time to get the password, which is announced at regular intervals over the two hours that the chatroom is open to everyone. This password – a room password – allows anyone to stay and chat after closing time. If the scheduled time is enough for you, then just show up – there’s no password required other than your own, which was set when you registered. Details of all chat sessions are on the calendar (click your name for that). – FEd]

  5. Nice one Jessica.

    An image of the black Strat before it had its black pickguard. So assume it was from the Pompeii era?

    Great use of monotones, unmistakable subject!

    Simple but very clever and nicely done.

    Have a great weekend all and hopefully see you on Monday in the chatroom as I’m working from home.

  6. Fed et al…

    A sketch is an hasty or undetailed drawing or painting often made as a preliminary study and a drawing is the representation of objects or forms on a surface chiefly by means of lines…

    And therefore this representation of DG in Pompeii is certainly not a sketch…

    [Thanks for clarifying. – FEd]

  7. Jess, that’s awesome!

    It looks like a Rorschach test for the musically gifted. 🙂

  8. I’ve always been jealous of people with artistic ability, having absolutely none of my own, so good work Jessica. Instantly recognisable.

    Now then, where did I put my Etch-A-Sketch?

  9. Beautiful Jessica, really nicely done. I think that was in his INK Floyd days?????????

  10. Nice work, Jessica.

    I bet she’s “Sittin on Top of the World”, Fed.

    [Like it. – FEd]

  11. Wonderful work, Jessica.

    FEd, anything exciting going for you this weekend? Personally, I’m going home to visit the family and relax up at the parents’ house.

    Hope you have a good weekend! :o)

    [Enjoy yourself, Ax. I’ll be hoping that Cardiff lift the FA Cup tomorrow… and that my Swansea-supporting friends can one day forgive me. – FEd]

  12. That there is the mark of a great artist! I could tell immediately where that drawing was from (Pompeii).

    Jess, did you use charcoal in creating that masterpiece? It’s absolutely brilliant and captures the essence of David to an uncanny T!!!

    Bravo,
    Darren

  13. WOW! Thanks everyone, you’re all so sweet. (Quite a shock when I hit the Blog page…) I didn’t use charcoal for this one, just an ink pen. Should’ve done it in pencil first, as you can see his arm is a tish small – his arms are MUCH manlier than that. : )

    Thanks FEd, this was a nice little surprise. Hope you have a great weekend. : )

    My roommate’s brother was found yesterday in the Chippewa River. He is dead, so the search is over. It’s good to know, for the sake of knowing, but it’s been a really difficult night for the both of us. She’s driving up from Chicago and we’re going to sit down tonight in the dark and listen to Dark Side of the Moon and On An Island and cry for a while… Russ was a huge Pink Floyd fan and it was one of the things we used to all do together.

    So have a safe weekend everyone, and thank you for this community. Times like these, moments like these, are very special to have. : )

    Thanks again for all the compliments. I’ll try to make another sometime.

    [I don’t think even The Great Bob has a lyric to sum up what I’d like to say to you at this moment, Jessica. I’m so sorry. My sincere condolences to you, your friend, and her family. – FEd]

  14. Beautiful work Jessica….

    Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend…tomorrow’s my birthday so I will be partying all weekend.

    Fed, have a great day.

    Renee B.

    [Thank you. Have a great birthday. – FEd]

  15. Great piece of artwork Jessica, you have a real talent…

    Have a great weekend all!

    [Speaking of talent… Has anyone been watching ‘Britain’s Got Talent’? – FEd]

  16. That’s a great picture. I really gotta send one in.

    Oh well in Calgary, Alberta it’s Victoria Day so I got an entire week off.

    Have a great weekend FEd & everyone else!!

    Cheers
    Adrian J. Emond

    [An entire week off? Make us jealous, Adrian, why don’t you? – FEd]

  17. Awesome artwork Jessica!!!!

    Glad to see that you (FEd) are still looking through all those pieces of artwork. Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

    Meanwhile I’ve got 3 days off, yeah yeah!! I’ll most likely catch ya on Monday in Chat.

    Cheers for now

  18. Jessica, I am impressed; and that unique “pose” of David Gilmour playing his guitar – flawless.

    FEd, thanks for sharing another nice piece of work with us.

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  19. Jessica, wonderful work. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

    Can’t wait to see more, Fed!

  20. Speaking of artwork, Classic 21 radio station gave us this info a few days ago:

    Bob Dylan’s art exhibition ( ‘The Drawn Blank Series’ ) will be coming to London from June 14, 2008. (Please, click my name.)

    170 water colour and gouache paintings by him were first shown in Germany (Chemnitz, south of Berlin) from October 28, 2007 to February 3, 2008. The exhibition was a great success.

    Wow ! musician, singer, prose writer, poet, painter, …

    [You forgot ‘genius’, but I forgive you. Thanks for the information. – FEd]

  21. Hi FED,

    great art work by Jessica and appreciated. Must be David in the early days or thereabouts.

  22. Jessica

    Just read about your roommate’s brother. I’m very sorry for your loss and hope time and music will heal the wounds.

    Much support and prayers for you,
    Darren

  23. Very nice work, Jessica…puts me in the mood for Cirrus Minor…and strangely enough echoes the sadness of your loss. I’m so sorry…

    Good wishes to another kindred spirit, Renee for her birthday. Good times and great memories…

  24. Jessica, I really like the ‘lithographic’ style and those comb edges that you have on your pen drawings.

    My thoughts are with you, your room mate and her family at this time. I know from personal experience that the ‘knowing’ as you said, is much better than any uncertainty, having been through a similar ordeal in 2000.

  25. Dear Jessica: what is your technique? It seems to be a lithography or did you work by computer?

    Many congratulations to you.

    bye/ciao
    Elisabetta

  26. to jessica: i’m sorry for your loss. you’re in my thoughts.

    to fed: at least there’s no need for your swansea-supporting friends to forgive you now.

  27. My warmest congratulations to David for recieving the Polar Prize today! Hipp hipp!! Every Floyd-fan here in Sweden is excited and thrilled!

    But this mail is meant for the “More of your artwork” category. This is what I have done: […]

    [Thanks for sharing – and a great story behind it, too. (Soon, everyone, soon.) – FEd]

  28. I’ve just read about the Polar Prize and the citation that mostly impressed me is “for their monumental contribution over the decades to the fusion of art and music in the development of popular culture”. I think no sentence could better describe their work.

    Many congratulations to Mr.Gilmour and Pink Floyd then, again. And many thanks for all the feelings that ever arise from their music .

    A friend of mine, huge fan of PF, some days ago told me: I listen to their music every day, they are my daily “rosary”.

    Bye and ciao
    Elisabetta
