"...save me, from this darkness..." *
the world does not need another Johnny Cash portrait, and sometimes, perhaps in the case of film and fans in recent years, it would be a more fitting tribute to pay no homage at all. Cash, like many of the great songwriters, left music that will speak for itself and last the test of time; in a way that artists (and certainly, sadly, illustrators) rarely ever come close to achieving.
i wanted to pay more homage to June Carter though, a member of the gifted Carter Family, and how if there are ever great women behind great men, she was his saving grace the whole time
thanks for looking
* subject quote from 'I See a Darkness', actually written by Will Oldham, but what a duet they made of it
