It took me awhile to settle on a person to choose for my next Imagemaking project. But I finally narrowed it down to Jimi Hendrix. I admire his creativity and innovative nature. I especially like his unconventional (at the time) use of different effects to create a musical environment.
I chose him partially because we share a few things in common. We’re both multiracial, left-handed, and creative.
He lived a pretty crazy life, which ended tragically from a drug overdose. I sometimes wonder what the world would be like if he was still around. Music would probably be a lot different, as his techniques and styles would evolve throughout the decades…
As I do more research and discover more about him, I’m sure it will lead to some interesting discoveries. I’m looking forward to it.
