The Man Who Sold The World by SilentKW The Man Who Sold The World by SilentKW
We passed upon the stairs,
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasnt there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes -- I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me,
We never lost control,
Youre face to face,
With the man who sold the world

I laughed and shook his hand,
I made my way back home,
I searched for form and land,
Years and years I roamed,
I gazed a gazely stare,
We walked a million hills -- I must have died alone,
A long long time ago.

"The Man Who Sold The World" - David Bowie

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A painting of Dr. Manhatten from the amazing GN/movie Watchmen (which is amazing). He's just, so blue lol.

Yes, I have made a Watchmen playlist on my Ipod, don't judge me. I really like this song and there are lines that suit Jon (his real name), and he sort of did sell the world, and in the end, he left everyone he knew. Anywho, enjoy :)

Time: 2.5 hours
Materials: Acryllic paint on watercolour paper
Reference: Beautiful screenshot from one of the trailers.
