The show "I want my music video" opens in a few weeks in Los Angeles. After doing multiple searches on YouTube for music videos to find inspiration from I decided to do something a little different and make a simple comment on how MTV changed the face of music and now the internet has done the same.
I'll post my final piece in a few days - but here is the show card
I received some sad news today that an old friend of mine Sharon Pell-Lie passed away a couple of weeks ago.
Although I haven't seen her in years the news left me stunned and weeping on my living room couch. We had worked together side by side for years at a company called Genlser. She taught me a lot about graphic design and Illustrator. She also was responsible for convincing me to get my cat, Ninety Nine, who I love dearly. Thank you Sharon for that act alone.
She was a kooky kind of gal that sold her own artwork on the streets of West Broadway and loved Burritoville. I had many laughs with her at work and just recently around Easter time I emailed her to get her home mailing address so I could send her a bag of her favorite Easter egg candy (those horrible long shaped, hard candy shell eggs with the tough marshmallow inside)
I'm so glad I did that now. I hope it brought a smile to her face.
I will reflect on our silly times together often I'm sure, wishing I could turn back time and see your smile again.
