There's always that argument to make - that you're in better company historically if people don't understand what you're doing. ~ Elliott Smith

I know not many people here will even recognize the guy, but I have to admit, he's a big influense on me artiscally and fashionally.

It's either I'm just ignorant, naive, or what-not, but I refuse to believe that he commited suicide, even though his death is unknown. I know he had a bunch of problems, but there's just no way someone that would write such good music end it all, especially while making another record.

Some people will also argue that he never got the credit he deserved, but I'd like to think he got the credit he deserved in the independent scene, not in the mainstream. He had a lot of fans there in the unknown, but not out here in the overused and sometimes worthless spotlight.

That's why I left his eyes open, because the answer is out there. We just need to find it.


god bless you, elliott. :peace:

That is beautiful. Both your description and the drawing. You sure have a lot of love for the man, and he was so talented. <3

We think the same way and dress the same way. :lol:

I still refuse that he commited suicide, though. :icongrumpplz:

I read about the possibility that his girlfriend (girlfriend, right?) murdered him. No matter how it happened, it's so unfortunate that such a great artist was taken from the world.

I AT LEAST HAVE AN IDOL. WHAT ABOUT YOU?

There's a possibility on that, but there was too much lack of evidence. Besides, one of his friends said that he wasn't hated extremely by anyone else.

DAMMIT, EVERYONE I IDOLIZE AND LOVE ARE DEAD. :crying:

AT LEAST? Dude, Green Day has been my idols since I was 11. And Gerard Way not only inspired me back in 7th grade with music, but also today with his comic book (and I look up to Gabriel Ba soooo much). AND LIKE EVERY OTHER MUSICIAN EVER. SO YEAH. xD

Hmm. That's really sad. I guess no one will ever know for sure. ):

BECAUSE THE WORLD IS CRUUUUUEL D':
