Love it! Also my favorite Troubadour. I guess I need to be more verbose, ( I have to use 100 words! HA) so as a piece of art it is thoughtful, reflective of what I know about the man and your technique is very good. As usual your metaphors make it yours and I find it interesting you have him kneeling in the forest, where I think of him as more urbane. Hmm. Wonder why there is a 100 word minimum?? Twenty more words, now sixteen, now fourteen, now twelve. Oh well I am a man of few words Love Lou
What do you think?

Dear Flori, I truly hope you have a wonderful time. It is a bit of a joke in my country that as he has made 3 last final tours and I hope for his fans he makes a few more. I very much like the old and young versions of himself in the same drawing, very much like old is reflecting back on events when he was young. If I knew more about Leonard Cohen’s work I probably would understand the importance of the handcuffs :).

...Thank You deeply for Your lovely comment,my dearest Allen:iconkissmote:..
Well,yes,You have to knoz about his songs,to understnd the little symbols I integrated in this drawing,the heart with the bird and the handcuffs are actually on the cover of one of his albums,called "the future",in this very album,there is special song,named"light as a breeze",I particularily adore,it's very sensual,tlking about certain "bracelets":blush:,bu other than that,he is also singing in lots of other songs of prison,wars,and his juddish(juewish)origines...

I am so happy that you like Leonard Cohen, dear Flori, he is one of my favourite singer too! And he is a fellow Canadian... :D
Wonderful portrait, I love that you drawn him on the background too, he has not changed that much! :love:
I am so happy that you will go to one of his concerts, you will certainly be able to approach him after the concert, just go to the back stage. And you want to offer him this portrait? Aww, you will make him really happy! :hug:

O.......................M.............................G!!!

sweetie what happened to you, what happened??????????

this is a thousand above what you usually do this is utterly amazing! It puts you with the best

the young leonard is cool and wise, the old leonard is fabulous

I love the way you put the young leonard in bold, and the old leonard in a softer dream version, logic would have told to do the reverse, but art is not logical, it is love you drew here, omg!

welcome amongst the best sweetie :heart:

In my opinion, a fabulous drawing of one of my favorite artists for the last 25 years. The idea of combining his young with the old version of him is so great. Almost like he is had the chance to watch over himself when he was young. :iconblakelord:
And all the ying&yang's hidden, the eternity symbol, the bird on the heart and the handcuffs from one of his album covers. You certanly have your own special style here, and that's what makes you unique. It's truly beautiful, and I love this dedication!:iconshinyheartplz::iconcheerplz::iconshinyheartplz:
