no kidding

I can't believe that I've gone and done another cassette drawing as, quite frankly, the first one was a pain in the arse. I was going to make this one more simple, but about 6 hours into it I realised that wasn't going to be the case. No kidding.

It seems my last post (guess the album) was far too easy. So here's another, which I think may be a little more difficult. In this one I'm looking for the musician/s who inspired this drawing.

**The answer to this one is Rufus Wainwright, and you can see notes on the clues HERE. Thanks for the comments and guesses folks.**

I love your tapes Andrea! What a fabulous tribute to ... uh, Rufus Wainwright?

I am going insane! And now that i've read Joan's message, i can't help being influenced by it!
One thing's for sure: i am listening to Antony & The Johnsons because of it. You made me want to pull out the CD.
My first thought was Leonard Cohen (didn't the McGarrigle sisters play in "I'm Your Man"?) -- but the Wainwrights sound like a plausible solution: sister, father...
Darn.
The drawing is exquisite -- and given the details, i can believe it took you that long to draw.

Gosh, I'm so stumped I can't even offer a guess :( BUT, I sure love the drawing. You should start selling prints...or better yet, originals!

Cheers folks.

Well, I do think this one was more difficult even thought Jo got it straight away! Yes, it indeedy was Rufus Wainwright. I'm guessing that Rufus' work is not as widely known as CSNY though (I should really stop talking about all the artists I really love if I want to make these a little harder). Anyway, I'll put all the answers on Flickr - as with the last drawing.

France, I adore the Anthony and the Johnson's album. The track 'What Can I do' is one of my faves. Such a beautiful album.

Thank you all.

Thanks ladies.

Shirley, I certainly did write all that stuff. I didn't know what I was going to write about I just let it pour out onto the page.

Mariana, I know. I can't believe I did it either.

Cheers, Teri.
