MY HEART THROB HAS PASSED

When I was much younger, I was crazy about pop star George Michael. I thought he was the most handsome man I had ever seen and I did countless sketches of him. Even though I got over my infatuation long ago, I am still very sad to hear he has died at the age of 53. We have lost quite a number of celebrities in 2016 and I can't help but wonder how many will leave us in 2017. the picture is one of my sketches of a young George Michael.

@Kandae11 Did you use charcoal in the painting of this? Or Fresco on canvass? What medium did you use? Very nice and appealing.

i remember his song "careless whisper, Wake me up before you go-go, and Last Christmas". indeed, he is a music icon whose achievements will surely be missed.

@ridingbet Unless I have proof - and all the facts, I won't dwell on hearsay.

Great sketch. You are very artistic. Sorry to hear about his passing. I don't know much about him, but I supposed he will be missed?

Thank you. Yes, he will be missed. Even I hadn't realized that he sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide.

@Kandae11 Wow...a million albums? I must be living on the other side of the world!. What kind of music? Did you ever had a 'showing' of your drawings? You are very talented. Is it a pencil portrait? I like the display of light on the head.

Sorry about that - it should be records - not albums. Yes it is a pencil portrait. I paint as well, but I find the pencil is quicker and less messy. No I haven't done any showings.

This saddens me too and he was always a favorite artist of mine and I grew up listening to his music since my parents like him too. He was a leader for gay people when he was true to himself and as a lesbian I respect him for that. I will definitely miss him. He was still young and my parents are older than him. We have lost many celebrities and it definitely is sad to think about more deaths next year. You made a wonderful sketch and truly have a gift that I do not possess. I am more musically inclined.

It is sad, especially when they die so young and could have given so much more to the world - Michael Jackson, Prince and a host of others.Do you sing, or write music?

When I was a teenager, I used to like and idolize his song " Careless Whisper." His boyfriend said that he will never stop missing his gf Michael as long as he lives.

When I realized that he had a boyfriend, I knew that I had lost my chance. - But that didn't stop me from liking him - and his music.

I really liked his music and some of them are still my favorites today. We have lost so many great artists this year. Sad.

Drawing is my main hobby - after reading - I also paint when I find the time.

Wham! was huge in the 80s and Michael had many fans like you especially when he went solo.
