All Along the Watchtower by VaIisk All Along the Watchtower by VaIisk
EDIT 4 (August 2nd, 2012): So, this was featured on the 22nd of June (which is pretty weird, because that's the last time I updated this, exactly one year ago... ) over on *quasi-Virtuoso's journal ([link]) and I forgot to update this! Thanks a lot! :dummy:

EDIT 3 (June 22, 2011): On Monday, ~stafferty featured this piece on the manly blog about manly men called Man-Lair ([link]). Thanks so much! It really means a lot to me! :la:

EDIT 2 (December 12, 2010): So, I got a feature from the good folks at ~startledcow over at their tumblr page ([link]) and I feel so honoured. Really, I do. For someone to like my art so much that they're saying "Hey, you, check this out!" really makes me feel good inside. Thanks so much, ~startledcow! :dummy:

EDIT 1 (September 18, 2010): I changed the name to "All Along the Watchtower," because that's the only Jim Hendrix song I know that I know (it was in Watchmen... Haha)(maybe I heard one that I didn't know was by him) and because my Paul/John one has a song title, so I thought I would make them match.
What do you think? Good? If anyone thinks that there's a better song title out there, let me know.


Part of my Typographic Portrait series!



:iconcommentplz:

My friend suggested that I make some more of these typographic portraits, since my Beatles one was so popular.
I thought I would do Jimi Hendrix first, since he was the first one he suggested.
He's made up of "Jimi," "Hendrix," Guitarist" and "Rock" and the background is made of a biography I found on Sing365.com. [link]

Photoshop CS4; 2 and a half hours.

Covering Bob Dylan and doing so well takes nothing less than a musical genius, and it was said that this version alone redefined what could be done with a rock guitar.  In terms of best covers, this is second to Johnny Cash's version of Hurt.  Hurt is #1 because it is a killer cover of a song that was originally awful.

Also, you do know that Bob Dylan wrote "All Along the Watchtower" right? Jimi Hendrix just covered it, so it's not actually a Jimi Hendrix tune. Beautiful picture, though.
