They wanted a Rock God… they got Jim: JIM MORRISON

“I am the Lizard King… I can do anything”

About a month ago I watched the film “When You’re Strange”… an artful documentary about the Doors, featuring Narration voice-over by Johnny Depp.  The movie focuses on the Doors’ legendary singer-front man, Jim Morrison and it portrays him in a way that seemed new to me… I mean, I’ve been familiar with Jim Morrison for a very long time… but after watching this movie, I felt like all this time I had been missing something really special, and that now I finally “got it.”  I’d say that’s the sign of a really good documentary.

So inspired by my new feelings about who/what Jim Morrison really was… I drew this characterization sketch. 

Break on through, break on through – eh… eh.. eh.. eh.. eh!
