Martin Luther King, Jr. by Michael Jackson
don’t tell me that Michael actually drew this?!!! :O
LA Weekly: Until now, Michael Jackson's art collection was shrouded in mystery. It was said to be stuck in a legal dispute over possession. Then, people speculated that buyers such as Cirque du Soleil's Guy Laliberté were interested. It's been valued at the staggering (and slightly unbelievable) sum of $900 million.
One crucial fact: Jackson’s art collection isn’t art by other people — it’s mainly drawings and paintings that he created himself. So what does that art look like?
Yesterday, LA Weekly was the first to visit the (until now) top-secret Santa Monica Airport hangar that Jackson used as his studio and art storehouse…
Fourteen-year-old Prince, 13-year-old Paris, and 9-year-old Prince Michael II (“Blanket”) Jackson were accompanied by their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and aunt, LaToya Jackson, as the family donated 10 signed pieces. The children also signed some of them below their father’s name.
The sketches, which depict Mickey Mouse, furniture and other objects, will be displayed throughout the hospital.
La Toya Jackson said she thought the art will bring joy to children at the hospital. “You look at this, it makes you happy,” she said. The pieces of art are “whimsical, they’re magical and there’s just joy and peace.”
I love it! It’s such a good idea, it’d never occurred to me to get a tattoo one of his sketches. See more here.
