DESCRIPTION

Elvis Presley Type Illustration

TRANSCRIPT

  • Project Statement

    Background

    The famous person that I chose to illustrate is Elvis Presley. He was the King of Rock n Roll and sparked a musical revolution in the 1950s. He made many memorable songs such as Heartbreak Hotel, All Shook Up, and Blue Suede Shoes.

    Target Audience

    The audience for this type illustration is music lovers and Elvis fans. The illustration is for an article in Time magazine about the mystery woman that Elvis was photographed kissing early in his career.

    Objectives

    To inform Elvis fans of this mystery woman and what became of her. I also want fans to remember the glory days of Elvis and revive his youthful feel of music in America.

    Obstacles

    The family of Elvis could be affected by seeing Elvis in this context.

    Key Benefit

    The viewers will know a piece of history from an artists perspective.

    Support Statements

    Although bringing up the past may drudge up bad memories along with it, I feel the experience will bring about a catharsis of emotions to the viewers.

    Tone

    Optimistic, reminiscent

    Media

    Print

    Creative Considerations

    To be considerate of the family of Elvis yet still fulfill the requirements needed for the magazine.

  • Lyrics Used to Make the Illustration Blue Suede Shoes Well, it's one for the money, Two for the show, Three to get ready, Now go, cat, go. But don't you step on my blue suede shoes. You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes. Well, you can knock me down, Step in my face, Slander my name All over the place. Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh, Honey, lay off of my shoes Don't you step on my blue suede shoes. You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes. You can burn my house, Steal my car, Drink my liquor From an old fruitjar. Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh, Honey, lay off of my shoes Don't you step on my blue suede shoes. You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes. Well, it's one for the money, Two for the show, Three to get ready, Now go, cat, go. But don't you step on my blue suede shoes. You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes. Burning Love Lord Almighty,I feel my temperature rising Higher higher It's burning through to my soul Girl, girl, girl Youre gonna set me on fire My brain is flaming I don't know which way to go Your kisses lift me higher Like the sweet song of a choir You light my morning sky With burning love Ooh, ooh, ooh,I feel my temperature rising Help me, I'm flaming I must be a hundred and nine Burning, burning, burning And nothing can cool meI just might turn into smoke But I feel fine Cause your kisses lift me higher Like a sweet song of a choir And you light my morning sky With burning love It's coming closer The flames are reaching my body Please won't you help me I feel like I'm slipping away It's hard to breath And my chest is a-heaving Lord Almighty,I'm burning a hole where I lay Cause your kisses lift me higher Like the sweet song of a choir You light my morning skyWith burning loveWith burning love Ah, ah, burning loveI'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning loveJust a hunk, a hunk of burning love Just a hunk, a hunk of burning loveJust a hunk, a hunk of burning loveJust a hunk, a hunk of burning love Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love

  • The King and I: Mystery woman in iconicElvis Presley 'Kiss'

    photo revealed - 55 years laterFifty-ve years ago, a buxom blonde captured the heart of a 21-year-old King of Rock and Roll, but no one ever

    knew her name.When the photos of their day together became famous following Elvis Presleys death, the mystery deepened: Who was this sultry temptress?Now, decades

    later, the woman has come forward, and is revealing the inside scoop of her day with Elvis in Vanity Fair.Barbara Gray then Bobbi Owens had spoken with an emerging singer named Elvis on

    the phone in 1956 and had arranged to meet him in Richmond, Virginia.When they met in person, they spent the day together, and photographer Alfred Wertheimer captured it all.As they went to the Mosque

    Theatre, where Elvis was performing that day, he photographed them irting and being playful in the back seat of the taxi.But at the theatre, Mr Wertheimer grew concerned when he found he had lost his subject just before the show

    was about to start.As he walked around the theatre looking for Elvis, he saw two gures at the end of a dark, narrow hallway - the future rock star, and his date for the day.He thought about letting the two have their private moment, but

    then thought better of it, saying 'the worst that can happen is that hell ask me to leave.'It was there, positioning himself on a railing, that Mr Wertheimer captured the legendary image, now known as 'The Kiss.'Mr Wertheimer said he was never asked

    about all the pictures he took that day until 19 years later, when Elvis was found dead in his Graceland mansion.He told the Today Show: 'The day he died, Time magazine called me and asked me to bring all my photos over immediately.'Among those photos was

    'The Kiss.'Despite the closeness evident in the photos, Mrs Gray, 75, says she didn't have as much attraction to the singer as he did for her, and she never saw him again.'Maybe he had sparks, but I never even knew who he was.'So did Elvis continue to pursue Mrs Gray after the

    two went their separate ways that day?She said: 'I got a Christmas card from him once, but that was it. Shortly after that, I left the state, so I don't know if he tried to reach me or not.'
