Wait...what would this website be without harsh criticism. I like it, but I have to write this to make morrissey-solo seem complete. "What a bunch of rubbish...doesn't even look like Morrissey...I'm sure Morrissey would hate it if he saw it...stop worshiping him, he is a man, not a god." Whew..that feels better......

I really, really like your painting. It looks very lifelike. I am awaiting the poster with the same image. Job well done.

Can somebody give me a tip were I can find high resolution Morrissey pictures? I am also looking for high resolution rockabilly pictures.

Thanks everybody for taking the time to look at my painting.

That Morrissey "painting" is from a poster from 'The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get' marked February 28th (which I assume was the date of the single). The photo is in black and white, surrounded by a black frame with white lettering at the top.

It is a huge poster. :)

Now, I don't know exactly what defines an airbrush painting, but the illustration here looks absolute identical to the real photo.

Nice Job. Ignore the retards who don't understand what airbrushing is.
And yes, Morrissey is gay, but he's amazingly cool about it.

Hey, I'm sure you're Moz painting with long fingers would love to meet my Moz charcoal drawing with a long neck!

Who's got one with a big nose? Maybe we can start a gallery.....

Hmm...I don't want to take away David Tseng's thunder for posting drawings, but if people want to scan them and email them to me (jpg's preferred), then I will make a gallery of Morrissey artwork with one overly large feature....

Only I would be weird enough to be interested in such a thing - Sat, Mar 13, 1999 at 09:59:50 (PST)



Hey man, a very nice painting. My only previous experiences with airbrushing has been with cheap porno or those old style unicorn vans of the late seventies with the shiny paint and those unicorns and barbarian women with massive 'features'....(some girls' mothers are bigger than other girls' mothers)...anyways, its a dazzling portrait and something that I would buy if I stumbeled across it...Cheers

What´s the object that he hold?

I must say, regardless of any other opinions, that this artwork is very, very good. Wonderful facial likeness and detail. Congratulations!

One other note....could we cease saying that Mr. Morrissey is gay? Don't you think that if he were, he'd be more than happy to tell us? He's not exactly one to bottle up his emotions and beliefs, now is he?

I'm certainly not saying that there is anything wrong with people who are gay (I have quite a few guy friends who are) but I am fairly sure that our dear Steven is not.

"Young GIRL, one day you will be old......but the thing is, I LOVE YOU now"

Once again, great picture!

WOW!!! I think the picture is terrific. It looks exactly like the poster I have on my wall. Oh and by the way (to all the non-believers), Morrissey is even better than God (Morrissey is very well dressed and atleast I know Morrissey exsists)

It's Morrissey's world, we just live in it!

Awsome picture guy! I would seriously consider making this a living if I were you. Little money until you die though. By the way to all those jealous fools who lack perspective, the reason the fingers appeare large are due to them being at the fore. Hello! Brainstem?!?!?!?!

Sorry about that! I accidentally hit the return key. Anyway, Jarvis, I think (although I am not in my bedroom to see the poster right now), that although this airbrush is similar to the "TMYIMTCIG" poster, it is different. If I am not mistaken, Moz is holding a pillar in the poster and wearing a striped shirt, right? I think the painting is very well done, so GOOD JOB!

I'm just curious to know why the hell are you all soooo eager to know if Morrissey is gay? If he is or is not....who cares?? It's still Morrrissey and we should all respect him for who he is....not what he is!!!
