Nick Drake by JoniGodoy Nick Drake by JoniGodoy
Illustration with a melancholic tone, created for a music magazine, about the life and death of the british musician, poet and guitarist, Nick Drake.

The pink moon is a homage to one of his letters, of course!

This has a kind of an old-world/fantasy LOTR feel to it, he looks a bit like a wood elf. I just discovered Drake and it's a shame there aren't any more albums for me to scarf down. This is really good, do you have a higher res scan you can email me that I could use as a wallpaper or something? It's that good!

Interesting interpretation of Nick Drake, reminds me of Holden Caulfield from The Catcher In The Rye.

Perfect representation of Nick Drake. Makes me think of "Northern Sky." Great job, Joni.

Good depiction of the moon as well! Still LOVE this one. But, what's in the suitcase? Is Nick going on a trip?

I love this! I was actually here on dA looking for inspiration for an Illustration class project on the song and had a very similar idea, using all ink except for the (obviously pink) moon although I didn't think to tinge the drawing pinkish as well!

The expressions are so powerful as well, it says so much just right there.

I love Nick Drake's music. I've been listening to him since I was 8 and Im 14 now. He is so inspriring and his music speaks to my heart. This drawing really captures what Nick was all about. Very nice job! (:

I have written a novella length ghost story based upon Nick Drake. Although the hardback has sold out, a paperback will be published in a couple of months. I like this drawing and would be interested in using it [or something similar] as the book cover. Please contact me if you are interested at mrdirachiel[at]gmail[dot]com. Here's a link to a review:

Thanks.

I'm not sure if you know, but this comes up when you Google-image-search Nick Drake.

And, I have to say, this picture & you as creator, deserve it!

This is just beautiful. Yesterday I buy Nick Drakeīs album Pink Moon and I canīt stop hearing it. I think if Nick would see this he would put it on his album.

lovely. I love the song "Pink moon." One of the happier-sounding ones! Some of his songs are tragic.

Brilliant.

An aside: I notice you said you're not a fan of Nick Drake... if this means you've simply not heard his music, I definitely recommend that you give him a try.

Anyway, very fine work indeed. Favorited.
