Never Can Say Goodbye by DarthFar Never Can Say Goodbye by DarthFar
RIP Michael Jackson (29 August 1958 – 25 June 2009).

I hate jumping on bandwagons and inflicting my viewers with something that's been done ad nauseum, but you can't grow up listening to somebody and not feel a sense of loss at hearing of their passing, either. In an attempt to make amends, I picked a reference that nobody else was likely to draw. I'm not sure if he ever really grew up -

Whatever else he might have been, Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, brimming with talent. If nowhere else, his death will be greatly felt in the musical community.



Title taken from the 1971 Jackson Five single.

Charcoal brush, Corel.

This is stunning. :sniff:....

The wee man that grew into a legend.
He never really WAS a child was he?

The world did not deserve such a pure heart.
RIP Michael. :heart:

You're welcome. And I love the quote you made about him not really growing up. If you listen to the song he made called "Childhood" I think that everyone would realize that he truly didn't.

Great job, as always. This is how I choose to remember him. This is the time period I remember for his music too. I know. I'm dating myself.
