I am a huge Leonard Cohen fan. If you don't know him, he is a Canadian poet and singer from Montreal. His first album, made in the mid sixties, 'Songs of Leonard Cohen' include the now classics "Suzanne", "Sister of Mercy" and "So Long Marianne". He explores themes of the human condition like no other. His lyrics are stand alone poetry of which one can hear time and time again.
He is now in his early 70's. I had the great pleasure of seeing him in concert last month. He sold out around 5 shows in Toronto's premiere concert venue. The audience was enthralled from beginning to end. A class act in top vocal form. Enough gushing...
When I came across this print on Etsy, by Oliver Lake at Lake Illustration, I had to have it. Oliver is a very talented illustrator from the U.K. who does this style of portrait of all the iconic singers, actors, writers etc. of our time. I love his work and could see starting a collection; a grouping would be so dynamic! Here is his site: lakeillustration
brush, brush, baby!
