Illustrating “Jokerman”

IMG_20180207_233204~2

Late last century Bob Dylan wrote “Jokerman,” a song laden with religious and mythic reference about a character groomed to be a savior, who chooses not to step up to Evil–or so is my interpretation. It seems to be a distant cousin to Jackson Browne’s “The Pretender.”

My drawing attempts to match the ambiguity of the song. It is best viewed while the song is playing.
