All Along the Watchtower, Take 2

When I heard this manic live version of "All Along the Watchtower" from U2's 1989 Lovetown Tour, I had to return to the song I had pictured already in January 2010 and extend it to a four pictures spanning illustrated song. Obvious soundtrack: U2 - "All Along the Watchtower" live in Sydney 1989 Lovetown Tour.

Imaginary Movie: Noir

After a long time, a stint to my ongoing tribute to late Daul Kim, disguised as something Wong Kar-Wai could come up with in his films which was the original premise for the series and still is. I don't know if "Imaginary Movie" will ever have an end as such, it just... goes on. As for the dark backgrounds, I wanted to draw this entry to the same brand of Canford art paper I started the series on, but I didn't have blank papers from that era anymore, just a bunch of failed doodles, so I had to cover those into backgrounds.

Li Na, French Open Champion 2011

As I said back in January in the entry about Li Na's run in Australian Open, "the next time... m-kay?". And indeed it happened so! Congratulations, Li Na, for becoming the first Asian singles champion in Grand Slams by winning the French Open title - and what an impressive display of tennis supremacy it was too! Oh, and congrats to Rafa too for winning the men's title for the sixth time!
