#INKTOBER Day 22. Today's word prompt was "alone". I remember watching @kwekucollins on KEXP's YouTube channel about a year ago, and the first song that he performed was called "Lonely Lullabies". I was captivated by a few things: his voice, the melodic flow in his rapping and singing, and immediately connecting to his lyrics (all of which lead me down the path of listening to all his music--so good). Also fitting in with the word prompt is his song called "Howl", which is about being a lone wolf. Anyway yeah, "Lonely Lullabies" was my starting point into Kweku's music, so I wanted to draw him.
. . . "See, you see what no one sees in me // You been here for my episodes // You stay for season 3 // Stay for me to leave; nah // Stay for me to be here // To be the beating heart you seek when scenes are mighty fearful // To be the bleeding lungs for your final breath of air // Even though I have nothing more for me to spare // Even though I have nothing but myself to share // Still give me to you // And you to me seems mighty fair // So when they close the curtain like // That's all for the show // I'll take your burden, I ain't gonna let go // I'll pay the price, even though you got dough // And I'll hold the door as we stroll into that world // The world turns // You return // Like re-runs // Of old Friends // Like Chandler love Mon do // Like Ross there love Rachel // Like chocolate love fondu // Like fishy love ponds do // Like I love you // I'm always behind you, love // ... and I'd rather be with you like Bootsy do // You are my addiction, my loosie, boo // See you in the sky like Lucy do // And I'm singing these Lonely Lullabies to you // Talking 'bout..." #kwekucollins#lonelylullabies#alone#hiphop#rap#undergroundhiphop#hiphopart#music#portrait#vector#vectorart#lineart#illustration#illustrator#inktober17#digitalart#artistsofinstagram#art
