Artwork Description

I wanted to paint Michael Jackson as Peter Pan, but a Steampunk version since traditional interpretations of Peter Pan can be quite mundane. So I found the happiest portrait I could find of Michael to use as reference and what better situation to paint him in than his signature dance move. I put him in the forest with mountains in the background to represent his permanent and supreme contribution to the world. I added Tinkerbell for people to properly identify the subject matter. And I resisted putting my likeness in her countenance. I added a ship in the background which would be the infamous vessel that belonged to Captain Hook. In Michael's case, Hook would be his nemesis, Tom Sneddon, the evil district attorney of Santa Maria who tried unsuccessfully to indict Michael. Need I have to mention that Michael was pronounced innocent of all 14 counts in this criminal trial! I'd like to think that in my painting, Tom Sneddon and his cronies have all been dropped off at the pit of Sarlacc where they will be painfully digested for a thousand years! So the ship is now manned by a crew of faithful MJ fans! I used Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop and love to create my painting. I hope you like my artwork!

I have to say that this is the best MJ illustration or likeness I have ever seen. I too was and still is a huge MJ fan and I miss him very dearly. He would have loved your work cos he loved Peter Pan and the idea of never growing old or dying. I would like to say thanks for the idea of MJ never getting old. Keep up your good work.
P.S. It would be nice if you found a way to send this painting to his family. I'm sure they'd love it.

Art at its best.
