A3 on Hahnemuhle german etching paper, which has a slight texture similar to watercolour paper.
Hey. And hello. Wotcha. Welcome to Raw Art, this blog post in particular. This thing.
And welcome to the latest thing – the all-new Raw Art Song Structure print. As seen [above] at the Grrrr! shop in July. Wooh – it’s the structure of a song. Could be any song. Or could it. Are all songs the same?
It’s the song structure of Thriller by Michael Jackson – well, sung by Michael Jackson and *danced* by him in a blisteringly shiny red jacket but actually a zombie which all good pop stars know is the No 1 route to, er, No 1. Probably. Written by Rod Temperton.I think Michael Jackson is the time I realised there was a thing called famous.
(“Michael Jackson”. Like it’s a time – “what time is it?” “Michael Jackson”. Anyway.)
Not like “person on tv opens church fête” famous. But global, life-shattering, unenviable famous. I was a kid, and the other famous people up ’til then – Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, John Lennon – they were all dead. But Michael Jackson was alive and famous. I think he was on one side of a Smash Hits poster, with Boy George on the other. It was at this point that I realised that Boy George was famous too. And alive. And my world did not turn upside down quite, but my eyes were open.
As said, I was not very old at the time. I am older now. And I’m selling this print.
Limited edition of ten. Digital print on Hahnemuhle paper, A3. I will sign it and blah blah. Any other questions – if sensible – use the contact page.
Or “Call Temperton…”
