Michael Jackson by admhire Michael Jackson by admhire
"What one wishes is to be touched by truth and to be able to interpret that truth so that one may use what one is feeling and experiencing, be it despair or joy, in a way that will add meaning to one's life and will hopefully touch others as well.

This is art in its highest form. Those moments of enlightenment are what I continue to live for."

Michael J. Jackson © 1988


Pencil, graphite, final editing in photoshop; reference image: link.

Dedicated to his fans; we love you more, Michael.


Edit: Sorry to be annoying; I uploaded a scanned version of this portrait because my scanner caught a bit more of the shading detail than did my camera.

Bigger version to download: (.psd file) link.

Detail of image: link.
