In good or in bad times, anyone could need an angel to look after them. To make you feel safe, peaceful, gracious...

But most things of all:
to make you feel
serene.


Drawing of an angel, featuring Jeff Buckley, who passed away in 1997 at the age of 31. But even now, after 14 years, people around the world find comfort in his music. They used to say he sang like an angel, mesmerizing everyone by the sound of his voice.

He has been my inspiration and comfort since the first time I heard him many many years ago. :) Therefore, this drawing represents the way that I see him. And I hope that anyone who finds him- or herself in bad or good times, they will find the same comfort and kindness in whatever that makes them feel good.


Approx 8 hours of work on A5 size
Drawn with graphite pencils + Polychromos coloured pencils.




Happy holidays everyone! :smooch:

He was Tim Buckley's son, right?
Tim Buckley who sang my all-time favorite song "Song to the Siren" :rose: :heart:

Yup, he is :) they really looked a lot like each other, but Jeff has only met Tim for a couple of weeks when he was small.

Shame... :hmm:
Have you listened to Tim's Song to the Siren? It's so good!
I recommend you listen to Paula Arundell's version of the song: [link]
You'll love it! :rose:

Looks fantastic, and that's so sweet, the way you see him. I've heard a lot of people thought that but i was like a baby when he died :/ so I've only really heard his Hallelujiah.. Anyway!! i LOVE IT, the wings look especially cool :D

Great work! I like the perspective so that the angel is just seen on the one side and not on the full view. Especially the hair and the wing is very well done. The red on the strap is great!
