How to Shoot Somebody Who Out-Drew You...Face 9 of 29

29 faces

Face 9 of 29...  Here she is:
"Love is not a victory march..."

She's another page in Gregg.  I used my Letraset Aquamarkers for coloring her.  I do love these markers so much.  I really need to work with them more, just so I can showcase how amazing they really are.  I feel like I am not doing them justice.  

The line on the page is from this song (Hallelujah sung by Jeff Buckley):

I think this version is so beautiful, although Leonard Cohen...come on, he's just awesomesauce no matter what he does...but I thought I'd give Jeff Buckley a little love today.

I think my favorite line of the song is "All I ever learned from love is how to shoot somebody who out-drew you" (which is the post title), but I thought the girl looked more like the line "Love is not a victory march, it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah."  She looks kind of pale and sickly and broken to me, so I stamped the 'victory march' line instead.

I don't know what's up with me and my bitter love pages of the past few days...poor-sighted cupid shooting random people without the care you'd expect him to take, the sad girl who's been shot by cupid and who knows her love is unrequited but needs to hear him say it, and now this sickly girl who feels love as cold and broken.  I'm sure there's some weird psychological explanation for it...most likely a terribly obvious one...although with psychology, one never knows...  

I think we'll need to change it up a bit for tomorrow's face, but who knows what will happen.  I try not to make plans because they rarely become realities.  I'm always much too excited by whatever shiny thing pops into my brain at the moment...and often times, even that doesn't quite show up on the hand and my brain don't necessarily cooperate with each other as well as I'd like them to.  But my rebel hand has been surprising me with interesting things as of late, so I hate to squelch its ambitions...  All I can say is we'll see...


  1. I recognized the line(s) straight-away! And, yeah, Jeff Buckley gave the Cohen classic such wings. It's beautiful. As is your face for today. :)

  2. Yay! I knew there'd have to be another Cohen lover out there! :) Thank you so much for the compliment! <3<3<3

  3. Beautiful! I agree that Letraset markers are awesome. Super quote too. I'm a huge Cohen fan :)

    1. Thanks! Those Letrasets...*sigh*...I love them so much! I don't think you can ever go wrong with Leonard Cohen...his music is just perfect, isn't it!?! <3<3<3


I'd love to hear from you!
