Kurt Cobain 1967-1994

"I didn't know Kurt... Such a beautiful flame never burns very long. The really brilliant flames seem to consume themselves, and then they're gone. Maybe Kurt was meant to be here long enough to put us on the right path." - Tom Petty

A4/catridgepaper/3H,F,3B,4B,9B/10hours?/cotton earbuds, charcoal/ ref: [link]

Nirvana's signature song, Smells Like Teen Spirit, was eventually awarded "anthem-of-a-generation" status the music media and, with it, Cobain rose as the reluctant "spokesman" for Generation X.

Any advice/opinions are apreciated, some alterations are possible [fixitive spray has not yet been applied, woo]

His last thoughts: I'm Kurt fucking Cobain, and I don't fear death. Goodbye Frances and Courtney....I love you! I love you!!!

Not being offensive!!!!! Don't flame me!!!

Hmmm, chu blend soft. It's funny how every one being that contributes in the ushering in of a new era of self-enlightenment and profundity either looks like some dirty, modern version of Jesus, or has the enlightened-more-than-just-an-ordinary-man-or-woman expression permanently plastered on their faces and souls.

Kurt is definitely one of my favorites. I like the dramatic lighting in this one and how uncomfortable he looks in the spotlight. Well, most pictures of him come across like that. I did one years ago (can't find it) that was similar but had him screaming. I always identified with him, somehow. You've done an excellent job capturing the light and a very characteristic expression here.
