Working on riders in the sky, to go with the dramatic skies I did yesterday, like this one:
My idea is to put a mounted rider in that swirl of dust, like this:
"He had that combo of one hundred percent no bullshit combined with humor and tragedy. I learned a lot from him. I love the way he’ll get so silly with lyrics it’s almost corny, then drop the most brutal lyric that you’ve ever heard and you go from 'that’s a bit too corny, John' to 'That’s the most f***ed up thing I’ve ever heard' in one second flat. Who else has the balls to do that? Like in the song, 'Often is a phrase I seldom use.' After singing that over and over he just says, 'How’d you like to die in a house of mirrors with nobody around to close your eyes.'
