Bill Hicks by -Wedge- by Wedgewenis Bill Hicks by -Wedge- by Wedgewenis
this is an *UPDATED* version of my Bill Hicks Drawing .

I was watching some old bill hicks shows again recently and he deserved better.. I dont have time to re-do the whole thing right now but I could atleast fix the old one a bit for now so I can put it back in my gallery.

I did some smoothing and touchups on the origonal drawing and then filled the background in with black in Adobe .. the background looked awful .. the old Version will be put in my scraps for comparison

==========================================

Bill hicks is my favorite standup comic, he died in 94 of cancer

"The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride..." And we... kill those people.

"But - We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. - Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real." Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace. Thank you very much, you've been great."

- Bill Hicks (December 16, 1961 -- February 26, 1994)

I'm almost certain if Bill Hicks was alive today he would support RonPaul ...

Brilliant picture, the likeness is spot on.

Bill Hicks was, and still is, the greatest stand-up comic ever, in my opinion. He was a genius. It's a shame he was taken from us too young and too soon. But, at least his material is still as relevant today as was back when Hicks was alive.

this is amazing.

Bill Hicks is literally my idol. He is a genius. It is so sad that he is gone. But as he would say; it is all only a ride man.

No words for this man... He knew it... Well, when I, and you all, leave this "short cut", that we call "LIFE", and get back to the real deal, hope we all have the pleasure to meet his soul somewhere...

Nice draw... :)
