Silent People

The first verse of Casey's Last Ride, a song by Kris Kristofferson, describes silent crowds walking down subway stairs. I see this as a metaphor for a life without love or purpose – minding the arrows and trudging inexorably towards the clicking of the turnstiles.

I've always thought the song would be a good candidate for a bleak graphic-novel-style interpretation, so when I got my hands on a graphics tablet (a gift from Anasua), I gave it a shot (which is to say, I drew the first panel; I would have drawn the whole song if I had the requisite patience, which I clearly don't).

Ooh is the tablet an intuos? I got one for my birthday too! That's a pretty great drawing. Totally atmospheric. But dare I say the eyes aren't dead enough..

Yup, it's an Intuos (noted in the image mouseover text, actually).
