Believe in Yourself

This started innocently: a group of friends, a Friday night and one of our mutual favourite activities, watching a film! Our hearts were set on a film which at least promised to be interesting, The Wiz.

I remember learning about The Wiz when I read a comic book version of a biography of Michael Jackson (when I was probably about 9 or 10). And recently, in an innocent charity shop, I found the DVD of this legendary film. I was blown away by the cover and even more by the cast: Michael looks like a disturbing rag doll, Diana Ross as Dorothy, Richard Pryor as Oz and Lena Horne as Glinda… Lena Horne! This was so unpredictably strange, I wondered why I never tried to watch it before… When I told the others, we all got so excited!

And then we started…

This unforgettable experience had to somehow be documented. This is a pencil drawing including glitters and even some blood of the artist. Pencils remind me of colouring times before I could even read.

Believe in Yourselfthe whole song, only for the brave!
