Strange portrait of Joni ( one of the best singer - songwriters from the past century ) but I like it... Done with ballpoint ? Amazing.

Hilarious, I just got into Joni earlier today, and I was listening to her Blue album for the first time when I stumbled upon this. Fantastic work as usual!

Oh, wonderful! And you did her with blue sky and clouds. Perfect.

I must confess that my first thought was like Forgetfullrain's: on small view she looked kinda zombie-evil, which to me is entirely appropriate for that whole generation.

NO OFFENSE TO ANY SUMMER OF LOVERS TYPES *Ahem* I am a product of it, after all.

But it's a curious juxtaposition (the benign zombie characteristic and the soothing sky) and that makes it wonderfully interesting to look at. I just love your portraits!

thank you, laura.
i've always noticed a certain creepiness that works it's way into all of my works, no matter what my intentions.
i always enjoy your honest interpretations.

as far as your view of the love generation goes, the cartoonist robert crumb was particularly sarcastic when it came to the love generation, he portrayed them as mostly just another uptight, mindless mob-mentality that was merely a fractured version of the conservative squares that they were rebelling against.

Joni Mitchell has been my favorite female musical artist sine her first album Song To A Seagull. I just love her and I love your portrait. It is just great. Thanks you so much for doing this. I'm so happy to add this to my collection.
