Happy Birthday Janis Joplin!

A day late, due to my scanner striking, but almost in time for her birthday, here's a sketch of Janis Joplin I drew when I was about 16.

I thought I'd pair it up with a short poem I probably wrote at about roughly the same time:


On my white canvas mind
A sorrow is stamping its damp, dirty feet.

So, belated happy birthday, Janis, I like to think of you celebrating it in a Chelsea Hotel with Leonard Cohen on the other side...

"I can't keep track of each falling robin." - L. Cohen
