I met through facebook a very nice guy named Steve, we have actually been in touch for a while but I finally just drew his cover for his newest CD. He asked me a while ago and at first I said o.k. then I declined. I declined because I had a few things going on and was in a slump... he waited, then I tried to turn him on to another artist friend - he declined, he said ‘he liked my vintage style.’ ;-)
I stalled some more... he persisted. Do you know what it was? I was nervous. Perhaps a little intimidated by his talent.
I listened to his music - which I was extremely impressed with, his words and thoughts - intelligent and well put. His understanding & appreciation of this beautiful PLANT obvious. We think the same. What I draw I feel he sings. His words inspired me. A few other things inspired me - he seems to be a hard worker, several things on the go- you can tell he is someone that believes - in himself. Look within. Believe. He clearly is not where he is at from sitting on the sofa getting high all day!! WAKE up ‘stoners’. Life is work. One of the things that impressed me most about Steve were his photos of Facebook. I look at everyones who requests friends profiles. I saw a great dad - in a tutu If I recall correctly.. A little princess. I saw not a ‘rock star’ but a person who I believe cares about what he is doing. Passionate about what he is singing, saying. Rapping? LOL You know what I mean. It is clearly paying off Steve is on the rise. He was just featured in this months High Times magazine and is being talked about all over. Like anything = research it for yourself check out Steve’s links. When he finally asked again - I sat down and drew. He LOVED it. He made my day, I am very proud to be the artist for one Steves C.D.s. I am grateful he bugged me & believed in me. Steve Caprio on FB his web site: http://www.ominouswords.net/
