On the Bus Mall by Joebot-Recreation On the Bus Mall by Joebot-Recreation
Here is the sixth and last (I think) Decemberists piece. This one is based on the song "On the Bus Mall."

Read the lyrics.

I went to one of their shows a few years back, and when they preformed this song, I cried more than I had in years. One of the most powerful songs I've personally ever heard. Colin also introduced the song as "the story of two male prostitute junkies", so I think it's pretty obvious where he stands on the gender thing since he wrote the song in the first place.

Anyway, ramblings aside, your Decemberists art is gorgeous, but this is my favorite :D Thank you for the beautiful art!

This is amazing. I'm drawing my version of the guys in the song too ;D
oh and you are right, they are guys in the song. When I saw the Decemberists live, Colin Meloy said "now here's a song about two male prostitutes"

I like that you pictured them as boys. I always do when listening to that song even though the lyrics could suggest either male or female.

the only indication of gender is in the line "kings among runaways." and i guess also because it's sung by a dude.

I agree. I've just had a few friends point out the line about make-up. But you seem to have covered that point well here-guys can totally rock makeup. :)

Love it.

Thanks! This was my last piece for JF. I think he was pretty pumped with the stuff I had gotten done this semester.
