Rocket man brush lettering

Rocket Man an Elton John classic, when he was on drugs and good. I don’t listen to any of the crap he churns out now. I’m not sure he can even sing nowadays without some synthesised pop muppet next to him.

Have to admit that Elton and Bernard Taupin wrote some awesome lyrics. “Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids. In fact, it’s cold as Hell”

Love that lyric. Having said that it’s hard to to take it seriously after you see what Stewie did to it—that’s a dig at William Shatner, man he must have done a lot of drugs—I don’t think we was the man I knew from Star Trek, no. no no.

So I thought I’d put my paint brush in ink and create this rocket man brush lettering piece. Enjoy.
