"Auf Wiedersehen"

Ever heard the song "Auf Wiedersehen" by Cheap Trick?  It's three minutes of caustic bitterness, screamed to a catchy beat.  "There are many here among us, who feel their life is a joke," we're told "So for you we sing this final song for you, there is no hope!"  The song is further peppered with morbid references "So long!  Sayanara! Hari Kari!  Kamakaze! etc..."
I can't figure out if the song is serious or a parody.  It is rather catchy, considering all the complaining that's going on.

Love this drawing!

The white outline is fresh. I like it because it doesn't look labored over (like the piece I'm working on).

This drawing really expresses a mood. Love the colors. I don't recognize the song, though.

Thanks stray!

Hi Linda,
Isn't it weird how quick doodles can have more life than stuff we work over? What's going on?
p.s. I'd still like to see what you're working on.

Hi Pile Girl,
I'll admit I was in a crap mood- and then that song came on the radio! So I drew the picture.
I felt guilty afterward. You have a pampered life! I told myself. I'm sure all the people out there who are starving, sick, lost their homes to some disaster, etc... would feel so sorry for you, ya big baby
Still, I kinda like the picture...

That is SUCH a cool picture. Now I should read all the other comments to find out how you did it.

Okay. No details. As it should be. It's just great all on its own. I really do like what Linda said: fresh.
