|Painting of Doctor Hunter S. Thompson|
Right now I have more canvases sitting in my art room / spare bedroom than I know what to do with. I bought a load of them before I moved away from Edinburgh, and a good mate of mine Steve Harris suggested a painting of Hunter S Thompson. I loved that idea as HST is a hero of mine when it comes to writing. He always managed to hit the right balance of fact and entertainment. In fact those with a bit of HST knowledge may recognize that's where the title of my album ;'This is Bat Country!' came form ;)
If you have never read any of his work then I urge you to do so, similarly go and see 'Fear and loathing in Las Vegas' if you haven't already seen it.
|The process...and point it nearly all went pair shaped.|
|Size reference,... with my best HST pose lol|
So as Doctor Hunter S Thompson would say "Buy the ticket, take the ride"
