-FAITH-Goodbye to an idol. RIP GEORGE MICHAEL-

This image is a tribute to my first idol, George Michael who passed on Christmas morning 2016.

I have been a HUGE fan since he was in Wham!and I first heard, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go in 1984. I was 8 year old and had snuck watching MTV, it was an instant crush and favorite song.

Then in 1987 his solo album Faith came out. Once again I snuck watching MTV and was enamored by the gorgeous bad boy singing. (At the time I doubt I connected this bad boy with his much different more colorful/fun Wham!persona.) Due to the nature of the songs on the album (Mainly: I Want Your Sex")of course my 11-12 year old self was not allowed the cassette no matter how much I begged. So, I got creative,and took an old cassette, I do not remember if it was mine or one I liberated from my parents, got a trusty piece of scotch tape and had a friend whose older sibling had the album record it over that for me on her double cassette radio. It was a treasured secret possession.

I did finally convince my mother to buy me a t-shirt with a still from the Faith video on it, I wore it until it fell apart and am guessing my mother threw it away because it could no longer be washed.

I have shed many tears listening to his music since his passing.
There are far too many beloved songs to even try and choose from but as a favorite but Faith will always be special, since that was the first time I fell head over heels into puppy love. That is why I chose to recreate this as my tribute.

His jacket's texture design was lovingly recreated by myself and not something available to the public.

Good-bye and Godspeed Mr. Michael's your light in this world will never go out as long as you have fans and loved ones to keep it alive and burning on...
